Default what is with the extra tour dates?

first a one-off in Chicago to end the tour, now a Dec 5th show in Denver.

let's add tour dates despite the shitty reviews?

I didn't think so, but I haven't really been paying attention.

Despite critics, there's still a demand for Smashing Pumpkins concerts, so it makes sense to supply them.

Also, 3 empty days between LA and Chicago.

Hmm well lets look at the Denver show
1,350 seats x $45 = $60,750


Then for Aragon Ballroom which has a flexible seating capacity which can range from 700-4,500.

700 x $42.50 = $29,750
4,500 x $42.50 = $191,250


Who cares about reviews. I wouldn.t!

I wonder if Denver is playing GLOW a lot. I think they may have added dates based on how much radio play and exposure they are getting in certain cities too.

New poster, but I got to agree with the above....SP has to come to Montreal. I'd even settle with Ottawa but their crowds suck as evidenced by the Chris Cornell concert last week and the NIN concert on Nov. 11th. Both weren't sell outs and the crowd were somewhat unresponsive. Montreal should receive SP as good as Toronto and maybe better. Montreal loves its concerts. Evidence? Iron Maiden this past June. Nuff said.
