They're high if they think they will sell anywhere close to 3/4 of some of these venues. I saw Roger Waters at the Infinite Energy Center in Georgia, and it did not sell out.

This was also my first thought.

But limiting it to the five real albums means I’m in. Sigh.

Lol. They're gonna try to play The T-mobile Arena here in Vegas. Depeche mode sold out almost. Exclusively because of Groupon. I'm calling it right now they either cancel the date or move it. No way they can sell out that gigantic shit hole.

Sweet! I'd be down with it if they covered some Zeitgeist too.

Oh God, that's the worst thing that could happen. I was desperately holding out for Jeff just to be the bass/rhythm/keys lackey and not "contribute" anything to the sound. His wanknoodling has no place on the classics.

Awful picture.



"The Smashing Pumpkins have released their first official photo of the 2018 ‘Shiny and Oh So Bright’ tour lineup which features Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin, and Jeff Schroeder. Olivia Bee took the photo."

Interesting poster. Looks like something Ayn Rand would use as a book cover, which isn't really all that surprising. For those making nazi comparisons, don't be morons.

Title of tour: I hate 2018. This is millennial courting nonsense.

I’ll go to this if it makes it to the U.K. but I get the feeling it will not.

Also guessing D’arcy may make some appearance at some stage, similar to Iha in 2016.

If it comes to the UK i'll def get a ticket out of morbid curiosity. I'm glad that D'Arcy isn't involved - actual touring professional musicians is a much more interesting prospect.

But it’ll be Bates wont it and I’m not sure that’s a plus or a minus.

Poster is horrible but connecting this to nazis is idiotic. No single? I really shit on this reunion. Moneymaker nostalgia tour. Ii really dont miss darcy- she cant play well. This announcement was more than disappointing.

the saddest thing is that billy's been such an irrelevant failure for the past 20 years they can market this tour as if the pumpkins are actually making a long awaited attempt to make music again.

the whole thing is pathetic.

if it was the original 4, i would be into it for sentimentality and to celebrate the energy of what they represented. but this is just the fakest thing. there's nothing new and also nothing classic about it. total masquerade.

They probably either...

-Don't actually have tickets secured yet, and they're banking on their bots / luck / experience getting tickets in the past, or...

-They might already have some kind on "in" with some of the venues.

I love that Billy recognizes that no one wants to hear the new stuff, so is only playing pre-2000 songs BUT at the same time keeps the guitarist in the band who only played on post-2000 songs

I thought the first option too but they're selling specific seats...
