Be that as it may, is it too much to ask that an artist who is charging 75$ per ticket prepare and learn the songs he's going to be performing beforehand? It's not as though Corgan is throwing in a few requests and then having to turn to the prompter for a few parts.
And ask yourself this, how much heart and soul can you put into a performance when you're literally reading along as you're singing? It's super weak and displays a lack of pride in his craft. A stageshow is an important part of being a musician and watching a guy up on stage who can't even remember the words? It's bunk to the highest degree.
