Smashing Pumpkins

As mentioned, Smashing Pumpkins were forced to reschedule a few of their dates due to Hurricane Sandy, and now they've finally got a new date set for their postponed Brooklyn show which would have happened at Barclays Center on Halloween. The band will now play Barclays Center on December 10. Morning Parade will open and tickets are still available and all tix for the original date will be honored. Updated Smashing Pumpkins dates (including the rescheduled Mohegan Sun [12/2] date and a Susquehanna Bank Center [12/8] show in Camden, NJ) are listed below.

Meanwhile, on Monday (11/12) the new Brooklyn arena hosted a Justin Bieber show. We swear we tried, but unfortunately things didn't work out and we couldn't make it to that one, but the Daily News was there to witness the Biebs soar through the air in huge angel wings.

The Who play there tonight (11/14), for what will be their first of five NYC area shows on their tour performing Quadrophenia in full for its 40th anniversary. The other NYC area shows happen on 12/5 at MSG, 12/6 at Prudential Center in NJ, 12/9 at Mohegan Sun in CT, and 2/21/13 at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island. Tickets for all five shows are still available.

Updated Smashing Pumpkins dates are listed below...

I'd love to see the Who again, but I don't feel like sacrificing practically half my paycheck up for them right now.

^^ Upper seating ticket prices are not that ridiculous, can find for below face on StubHub and Tickpick. I hear the sightlines aren't bad from up there, don't know about the sound though.

was upstairs for Jay Z, sightlines were fine.
The old folks will be sitting anyway

Since when Mohegen Sun is "NYC area" ??
Have you tried getting back from there after a show without a car?

Posted by ME | November 14, 2012 12:01 PM

Are we discussing the Who shows cause this is not The Who playing. These are 2 guys who used to be in The Who doing a passing approximation of what The Who used to be.

Sound in the upper deck is horrible.

"this is the next best thing for who fans"

No, this is more like the last gasp for morons who know no better and can't face the realities of life. They also have lots of money to just throw down the toilet.

1:35, no problem, I'm not going and apparently a lot of other smart people are not going either. None of the shows are close to sold out and tickets can be had for cheap on the secondary sites.

I love when people say none of the shows are close to sold out. Tell me oh wise one what is the total capacity of Barclay's and how many tickets have been sold!

Saw The Who last night in DC, about 3/4 full -- through the magic of technology both John and Keith make appearances. Better show than expected. Someone put a good amount of time and effort into the arrangements and visuals for the Quad set, and despite their ages, both Pete and Roger sounded pretty good.

Rog's Tommy Tour was a $19 ticket day-of in NJ.

1:52, well if you have any level of intelligence you can often tell how well a show has been sold using various markers.

Such as seeing what is available and for what prices on the secondary market. Or seeing the amount of promotion and mailers being sent out in proximity to when the show is.

Those are just 2 easy examples

People that comment on this site about the level of ticket sales clearly would better spend their time in currency trading, mortgage brokering, or some other quantitative pursuit. Whether a show is sold out or not is NOT a good indicator of its artistic merit. Unless you're a Belieber.

Posted by Brian | November 14, 2012 2:14 PM

Most of the time you are right 2:14. In the case of this show though, the fact that a band as classic, huge and important like The Who can't sell these shows is a pretty good indicator of how people feel towards this go round.

Posted by Anonymous | November 14, 2012 2:22 PM

2:07 answer the question that 1:52. If you had any level of intelligence you should be able to comprehend a question. Of course you are not able to answer the question because you don't know shit. Look I am sure there are pleanty of tickets left the issue I have is when everyone claims they know something and it is bs. Indicators of a show not being sold out are bs. Neil Young at barclays is a good example. Show is not sold out and tickets are not going under face.

Posted by Anonymous | November 14, 2012 2:24 PM

^2:24 makes a good point...it could just be an indicator more so the show is over priced..if you said that is the reason why it is not sold out I would agree!

Posted by Anonymous | November 14, 2012 2:31 PM

It is pretty obvious that 2:24 is also 1:52 first of all. Secondly he does not know what he is fucking talking about. The question you posed at 1:52 was answered. If you do not like the answer that is on you. The example you posed is also just as dumb as you are. Do you not even have a clue as to how the ticket game works? Of course Neil Young is not going for under face AT THE MOMENT. It is still weeks away. Dummies on StubHub and Craigslist ask for whatever they think or hope they will get for it now. More wishful thinking to be honest. Here and there they will get some equally dumb idiot who also does not know the game who will pay that price. Most won't and will wait till the week of the show and then you see the prices drop.

Neil Young ticket prices will be at face or below come the week of the show. In the case of Neil it is somewhat to do with prices being too expensive but also most Neil fans bought up the MSG tickets as they went on sale first and Barclays is not selling as well as the market is just not there for that many Neil shows in that period of time.

I'd tell all of you ticket theorists to go and die, but you're better to listen to than Corganites, who have remained strangely silent on this thread.

^ You care about this issue, A LOT. Unfortunately your opinion is still irrelevant and nobody cares.

The reason The Who show isn't sold out is because they are playing 4 arena shows in the area.

Posted by Anonymous | November 14, 2012 4:29 PM

Smashing Pumpkins are selling seats to their Camden show for $10 each & the money is going to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

I grabbed two. It was worth $20 & a cheap bus ticket to Philly.

Posted by Anonymous | November 14, 2012 4:45 PM

@4:25, thanks spokesman for absolutely no one. Well, anyone of significance that is.

@4:29 even if they were playing 1 arena show it would probably not be sold out but yes they are playing too many places in the area.

4:16 is a funny guy well I worked in publicity for the concert industry for several years but what do I know!

You're a retard. I worked publicity for one of the most popular mid sized venues in PA. But since you have a pea brain you won't figure it out. Good bye!

Every time I think The Bowery Presents out-does themselves with some absurd booking, they always sink to a new low.

Posted by noor | January 16, 2013 11:31 AM

I always wondered how they came up with the name the smashing pumpkins for the band.
