Smashing Pumpkins @ Barclays Center, 12/10/2012
Smashing Pumpkins played their first-ever show in Brooklyn on Monday night (12/10), lighting up the Barclays Center. It was a rescheduled date and was originally supposed to happen on Halloween but Hurricane Sandy had other plans for NYC that week. The band sold special $25 dollar tickets to the show where a portion of the proceeds went to Sandy relief.
Against projections cast on a giant white orb that would strike fear in Patrick McGoohan, Billy Corgan and crew ripped through the entirety of SP's new Oceania LP before coming back for a set of "classics," though the more casual fans in the audience may have been dismayed to find them not play "Today" or "1979."
More pictures from Barclays Center and the playlist are below.
