Smashing Pumpkins Announce Tour Dates

Billy Corgan has been busy of late. Hot on the heels of reissuing the Smashing Pumpkin‘s landmark 1995 release, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, the singer/guitarist has announced tour dates with his current Smashing Pumpkins lineup.


The band, which in addition to Corgan, features drummer Mike Byrne, bassist Nicole Fiorentino, and rhythm guitarist Jeff Schroeder, will make an appearance at the Cumbre Tajin Festival in Mexico on March 23. One month later, they’ll kick off the U.S. leg of their tour with an appearance at the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, FL on April 29. The U.S. leg of the tour will conclude on May 18 at the Rock on the Range Festival in Columbus, OH.


The Chicago alt rockers will commence the European leg of the tour about a month later, kicking things off on June 20 at the Live Music Hall in Cologne, Germany, and wrapping things up with an appearance at Wembley Arena in London on July 22.
