Something like that could elevate material that isn't quite the classic stuff commercially, the novelty factor.

Foo Fighters are the only 90's band these days that have guaranteed rock radio hits every album, Green Day too to an extent, but both of those bands stayed together and have been fairly consistent churning out hits, outside of the few years before American Idiot. It took Weezer incorporating modern pop elements and covering Africa to get back on the radio.
I think it would rely on luck more than anything. It is kinda unpredictable in a way - atleast to me - on what general audiences catch onto. I honestly thought Violet Rays was going to be a hit when I heard that chorus. Shows that I myself don't even know what a hit by the Pumpkins in 2018 or later would even sound like.

That all said though, even with no hit, I would expect they get better turnouts in large theatres going forward than they were just based on the positive energy of this tour.

Pipe dream, but I would love to see a co-headline with NIN at baseball stadiums next year. I wonder how well it would sell.

Like with RBG, this is hitting me pretty hard

And RBG, thanks for breaking down Billy's guitar style; that was really cool to read
