They are coming down to Miami for some festival soon. It's 75 bucks. I've never seen them live. I've seen some of the live videos lying around and the performances look pretty blah, they look like robots on stage. But they were my favorite band at one point. What do you think?

You might get lucky..I did, almost every single time I've seen them; 1996, 2000, 2007 (x2), except London 2000. It was SHIT. Mugged off. Saw them in London again this year and at Reading Rock and both were sublime for different reasons. Go.

Me and my girlfriend seen them live at the V-fest this year and it was pretty spectacular. My girlfriend is a big adore fan and thinks that Z is an O.K album...but live, wow, superchrist and United states were her favorites. The also reworked a lot of old songs like Glass and the goast machine, giving them a new life. I never liked GATGM but the new live version was great. Go fucken see this band. I don't know why you would have to ask.

Eh? Both the London shows were great. Esp. the 2nd one. The Birmingham one however, not so good

Stick with nostalgia unless you'd only be lighting a cigar with that $100 bill anyway.

Erm I completely disagree. The London Wembley Arena 2000 gig is renowned for its shitness. Birmingham NEC 1996 was 2hrs 45 minutes of brilliance.

so there is about a 50% chance that going to a Smashing Pumpkins show will make you give up on your dreams

Ah, I was talking about the Birmingham 2000 gig which was one of the biggest let down I've ever had... I thought the London gigs were excellent, esp the second one. Did you go to them? They played Games Without Frontiers and one of the best Ava Adore's ever!

$75 is a lot of money, and festivals can me annoying imo.
i had the chance to go see them in montreal, but declined because it was festival.

i saw them once on the MCIS tour, once for Adore, then a machine in-store show, the Machina tour, then the last time was on the Summersault tour Aug. 2000. 1996 MCIS show was my favorite. i still had fun at the above. Summersault was still fun even though it was a festival, probably because i was 18 & the drinking age in Quebec was 18.

I went to the second London one in 2000, the last gig before the Final American tour I believe. The band didn't interact with themselves let alone the audience, Billy barely spoke at all and just pissed off at the end after what was frankly an unispiring and short show without even saying goodbye. I recall quite distinctly being extremely disappointed.

i have been to 14 shows so far this year, i only regret not being able to see more shows w/o the camera eye.

would say over all they are worth a go.

Shit, no wonder that 2000 NEC show sucked - I didn't use the time tunnel!

I am going to said festival in Miami. I drove to Asheville and saw the 6/27 show and was blown away. So I think it's worth a shot.

You must be some sort of scrud too. I bet you ask people if you should go to concerts. Grow a brain ass-licker.

I didn't care for the original posters thoughts either, but that was a pretty simple question he asked. I am a huge fan and don't care what others think of their shows, so no.

Try to see them in their own show, not some festival timeslot.

but if you can't. YES see them. Even if you did not like zeitgeist, still go see them. The only reason I could think that you wouldnt want to see them is if you are a james sackrider.

statements like this make me wonder what having balls is like.
