Smashing Pumpkins @ Allstate Arena in Chicago (more by Jimmy Farabi)
Smashing Pumpkins

Can't complain about a cheaper ticket:

Leading up to their New York City show on Monday, December 10, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS and Barclays Arena (where the band will be performing) have joined forces with the Brooklyn Recovery Fund to contribute to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts by offering the charity a portion of a specially priced $25 ticket available now at: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/00004916E157C497

The Brooklyn Nets, Barclays Center, Forest City Ratner Companies and the Brooklyn Community Foundation each pledged $100,000, for a total of $400,000 to create the Brooklyn Recovery Fund. Brooklyn Recovery Fund provides support to Brooklyn's nonprofit organizations working with the communities and individuals most affected by Hurricane Sandy.
At the Barclays Center show, the iconic PUMPKINS--singer/guitarist BILLY CORGAN, guitarist JEFF SCHROEDER, drummer MIKE BYRNE and bassist NICOLE FIORENTINO--are performing their acclaimed new OCEANIA CD in full and for the second half of the show they'll play classics and deep cuts from their multi-platinum body of work. The PUMPKINS are backed by visuals prepared by Sean Evans, whose most recent project was assisting Roger Waters on the newest staging of "The Wall." The PUMPKINS are using new technology in video-mapping to create something new and previously unseen. Joining the PUMPKINS is English group Morning Parade.
The Monday Brooklyn show is the last of three remaining rescheduled tour dates. They are all listed below...

Did this band play arenas at the height of their popularity?

I saw them play MSG at the Garden with the Frogs....in 1996! That made sense. You would think this tour would have hit 2 nights at Hammerstein or maybe T5. Barclays seemed like a bad idea from the start.

to answer the above, yes when it was the original lineup. His last few appearances in NYC have been at terminal 5.

i feel bad for the scalpers

Posted by Anonymous | December 7, 2012 3:56 PM

Not only that but look at the setlist....enjoy their new album.....in its entirety

Posted by Anonymous | December 7, 2012 4:08 PM

The new album is actually very good. Better than Machina? Check. Better than Zwan? Check. Better than Future Embrace? Check. Better than Zeitgeist? Check.

I feel bad for Billy Corgan.

It's kinda like when a band can only get their friends to come to the show, except in this case the show is at a really, really large venue.

"the iconic PUMPKINS--singer/guitarist BILLY CORGAN, guitarist JEFF SCHROEDER, drummer MIKE BYRNE and bassist NICOLE FIORENTINO" - indeed, each of those four people are VERY iconic.

Could this end up being more depressing than the Dylan show?

Posted by Anonymous | December 7, 2012 4:31 PM

what was so depressing about the Dylan show? It looked pretty full.

oceana is the best thing he's done in years. and a 10-12 song classic set with a GA ticket for $35 isn't too shabby.

3:47 still goes to see Dishwalla and Everclear.

that bald fuck is not worth $25

3:47 lives on a houseboat

Wonder if a non-Halloween Pumpkins show can fill half an arena.$25 is a good price.

The Smashing Peanuts should do what 80's hair rockers do-have a package tour with other big bands of that era.The Monsters of Grunge tour ft SP,STP,AIC and Bush would sell like flannel at the GAP in 1994!

I got sucked and spent $83 on tickets and now they're $25? Nostalgia burns.

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2012 11:04 PM

i agree that they should reduce prices for the ones that paid full price. kind of feels like they're gouging their most loyal fans. and this is coming from someone who isn't one of them.

the interesting thing is that they must have known that they wouldn't sell tickets since the oct 31 show didn't sell well and all the scalpers who bought were given an out with the storm. The band was given an out too to cancel or reschedule in a smaller venue. why would they stick to barclays?
