Smashing Pumpkins at Terminal 5 in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Smashing Pumpkins

As mentioned, The Smashing Pumpkins are going on a big arena tour this fall, which hits NYC on October 31 at Barclays Center. When we first announced the tour, the full list of dates and venues had not been revealed. Now they have, and you can check out the list, which includes Susquehanna Bank Center on November 2 in Camden, NJ and Mohegan Sun on November 4 in Hartford, CT (presale for those two shows begins 9/4), below.

Presale tickets for the Brooklyn show went on sale today (8/27). There's a Citi Cardmember presale, an artist presale (password: "TEARGARDEN"), and VIP package options. General sale for that show begins Friday (8/31) at 10 AM.

A list of all dates and a video of The Smashing Pumpkins performing "The Celestials" on Leno are below.

Wait they're really playing arenas?

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 1:21 PM

Hey...at least the floor is all GA. Funny enough, it probably won't be sold out but, you know if will be full by showtime.

Billy Corgan is BALD!!!

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 1:32 PM

Billy commits to playing Gish and Siamese in full, in order and I commit to sitting through Oceania, in full, in order. That's a fair deal.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 1:33 PM

1:31 - very full... of LOOOOSERS! OH SNAP! Thank you very much.

Tickets will be $10 on StubHub a week before this show.

isn't this awesome if you're an SP fan? you get to pay $5 to get floor tickets to one of your favs

how on earth can they even contemplate these sized venues?

Smashing Pumpkins...WELCOME TO BROOOOOOOKKKKKLLLLLYYYYYNNNNNNNN!!!!!! crowd goes wild, dives into cherub rock, take it down a notch...1979!, ok here's a new one, ehhh, ok, but back to old stuff! Presenting...Darcy!!!

Bowery Presents is promoting this one. That means that they'll pretend it's sold out until a week before the show, when thousands of tickets will magically appear in the Ticketmaster system.

Tons of GA floor and great seats available ten hours after pre-sale.

This is a good one to wait and buy $10 tix on the street day of show. Maybe even freebies if the weather is bad.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 9:10 PM

lotta trolls on this site talking about below face tix, but for this show, it's absolutely right. no WAY they draw arena level crowds for this tour. Esp. in NYC on Halloween. People have a million other options here. Tix better be super cheap, and Billy better be playing 2+ hour shows with TONS of old material, and make it VERY clear beforehand thats how its gonna go down, or these arenas will be empty.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 2:40 AM

Unless they cut the arena in half, there's no way they can sell the place out. There's no hocus pocus that Bowery can do to make that happen. They're probably good for about 6000 tickets at most. Even if they do 2+ hour shows with tons of old material, people are tired of Billy.

Jimmy Chamberlin was what made the band great.

Matt Cameron was great on Adore.

Matt Cameron's great on Louder than Love.

Jimmy Chamberlin >>>>>>> Matt Cameron

It's a fact

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 9:54 AM

Matt Cameron was already kicking ass in the mid-80's. Remarkable drummer. He was even great on that crappy Smashing Pumpkins song.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 9:58 AM

Chamberlin, who originally trained as a jazz drummer, cites jazz musicians Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Gene Krupa, and Buddy Rich, as well as rock drummers Keith Moon, Ian Paice, and John Bonham as major influences on his technique. While he is known as "one of the most powerful drummers in rock," he primarily strives for emotionally communicative playing. In 2008, Gigwise named Chamberlin the 5th best drummer of all time.

Jimmy cites heroin as a major influence

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 10:45 AM

Fun (but kinda strange) fact: Billy Corgan used to be quite the baseball player in high school.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 10:49 AM

Jimmy Cameron was awesome on Titanic and Avatar. Matt Chamberlain was a sweet hippie on the Edie Brickell records.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 11:09 AM

Yeah cause we all know that none of the Soundgarden members have ever done heroin.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 11:10 AM

Fun (but kinda strange) fact: Billy Corgan was born with Down Syndrome. That's why so many retarded people can relate to his ignorant stupidity.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 11:12 AM

The level of stupidity on this thread just proves how retarded the average SP fan is.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 11:14 AM

saw SP at u nit ed pa lace . empty as shit.

UP is bigger than Barclays? pretty sure Billy hasn't made any new fans since Jimmy quit the band.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 11:20 AM

UP is smaller than Barclays. Much smaller.

This should have been at roseland or terminal 5. GA is still available more than 24 hours later.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 12:20 PM

no ones care.

more like smashing blumpkins.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 1:28 PM

Even though Billy played Bass on Gish and Siamese Dream, it still sucks to see them live without Darcy and Iha and Jimmy. Billy Corgan is not the Smashing Pumpkins.

Posted by SP fan | August 28, 2012 1:41 PM

^ Your heresy will not go unnoticed. You've just lost your Corganite membership, pal.

Posted by BC | August 28, 2012 1:57 PM

SP attracts dorks, but fine honeys as well.

Soundgarden attracts bros.

I'll stick with SP, thank you very much.
