Post Next Year's Tour

The Pumpkins should provide an album download to concert ticket holders next year. This certainly worked out well for Metallica this year.

I'm optimistic that next year's tour will sell out arenas and secure good festival offers. 2018 has the makings of a very good year in Pumpkinland.

Yeah but that was blind speculation based on the fact that Mike wasn't going to be playing.

Here we have actual word from Billy and Jimmy regarding a reunion.

Wow, neat thanks for the snark. It was impossible to anticipate.

It will be sad if the band gets back together and plays to half-empty venues and daytime festival crowds. Another distinct possibility.

And yes, I know my mom is a distinct possibility. No need to point it out.

Not that they'll play the UK so it doesn't really matter to me but still think Arenas may be too ambitious.

god i hope they don't try to play arenas. keep it in smaller-mid sized places.

I also don't know how good a slot they will get at festivals. Festivals are certainly a higher pay day. I remember bill saying he was disappointed with the slots they had been offered at festivals. He still wants to be the biggest band in the world I guess.

Fat chance. Pumpkins are trying to follow the GnR business model. Start off with a newly added "classic" logo to the website after a year of rumors that the band is gonna get back together, and then follow it up with a ton of arena tours and headlining festival spots.

The GnR success is also why they probably rationalize that they can do the tour without D'arcy... "Hell, the Gnr tour is doing gangbusters without Steven Adler and Izzy Stradlin".

Problem is that GnR is a different kind of beast entirely. They've become a fabric of rock and roll pop-culture. Pumpkins don't hold anywhere near the same kind of pull. So if it's B0lly, JC and Iha with some random eye-candy plucking the bass I don't think it's gonna work.

It needs to be a full reunion or they shouldn't even bother.

I guess D'arcy's Oh Boy-friend wanted to get a job as her personal security guard. Bounty hunting isn't very popular these days...

And she had too explicit wishes for the catering, like starting the day with Bulletproof-Coffee.

AUSTIN, TX—Hoping to eventually reach a worldwide audience, members of the alt-rock band Few Are Silent told reporters Friday that they dream of one day becoming popular enough to completely alienate their early fans. “Right now, we’re just paying our dues by playing gigs around town, but it’d be pretty cool if someday we have a huge disaffected fan base that insists only our first two albums are worth listening to,” said lead singer and rhythm guitarist Jack Lewis, adding that the group aspires to someday team up with several high-profile Los Angeles music producers to create a more polished, radio-friendly sound despised by the band’s original fans. “Maybe five or 10 years down the line, I’d love to sell out stadiums and put on highly choreographed, overproduced shows that our current fans would claim don’t even come close to capturing the raw energy that we had back when we were just playing small clubs.” Lewis confirmed that he sometimes imagines a 20th-anniversary reunion concert at Madison Square Garden with just two of his original bandmates and several studio musicians.
