Scaled-up version of the SITS tour. Or a scaled-down version of the early 2-part MCIS shows. Acoustic set. Rock set. Encore set. About the length of an Arising show, because not many old songs are played. Fingers crossed.

hardly any old songs will be played.. maybe a couple singles. bill will realize lil mikey can't handle the drum parts and will just forge ahead with the new material.. which is what he said was going to happen before jim left anyway.

which btw.. it's now been a year since jim left.

This picture represents the effect that playing these songs would have on Mike, not us, right?

Matt Walker as a live replacement for old songs. The only way possible.

1. Few, if any old SP songs. Maybe just 1979 and some other fan favorite that will be rearranged and ruined.

2. Much fewer people in attendance than he's ever had at a proper show.

3. Less than half of the fans there will know anything remotely connected to Teargarden. The rest will be there because they heard the Pumpkins were in town.

4. Fans will cheer and chant for Geek USA, and Billy fill progressively become more and more cynical each show until he reduces himself to the previous tour's demise: a nightly bitch and moan session by Billy claiming he doesn't want the fans in attendance to be there.

5. Bad press and fan cynicism on message boards will surround the little publicity even existing for this tour, and Billy will cancel the whole thing.

6. Billy will use the bad tour as an excuse to not have to go through with finishing Teargarden... to which fans will respond with a big "We told you so."

Well I guarantee Billy will be there. So really, does anything else matter?

There will be some noise, confused faces, lots of drinking, maybe a riot or two, and finally a burning effigy.

That's so ridiculously believable that I shivered in disgust.

The number of covers will be proportionate to the number of old songs played. Say 2:1.

I'm kind of doubting I'll ever see the pumpkins live again, definitely not for the next tour at least. It would be impossible for me not to boo if he started playing something like widow wake my mind.

Billy will get on the acoustic and the audience will expect to hear 1979...


...only to get A Stitch in Time.


Then there will be several rows of this :erm::erm::erm::erm::erm:

SP1 songs played:

Today
Bullet With Butterfly Wings
1979
Mayonaise (for "the fans/hardcores" that show up)

Everything else is stuff off Teargarden. 2 and a half hour show

I hope he decides against making noise for 50% of the show. That fucker owes me for driving all the way out to Davenport, only to listen to him make noise for HALF THE FUCKING SHOW! What an asshole, but I'd stll suck his cock :)

Ha. It's not the Pumpkins. I'd expect what I'd expect from a solo show.

undersold venues

only sp1 songs played will be acoustic

At the first show, Billy will walk on the stage and play Obscured...then pull a Bud Dwyer and end it.

It will go down as the greatest moment in rock history.

First set, 5-7 greatest hits. Half-hearted straight album versions. Billy then informs the crowd that that's all the SP1 they're getting, and asks anyone who doesn't like it to leave then. A lot do. Rest of the set is Teargarden/other new songs/covers. Silverfuck encore for those who stay to the end.

Billy will come on stage holding his 2 inch obelisk. A girl in the front row will get something in her eye.
