Smashing Pumpkins reveal upcoming tour plans

Gish

As stated previously, the band will be heading out into the United States for the first time in 2008 during August. This tour will be for fun and will consist of unique sets and songs. Expect this tour to visit mostly smaller-sized venues.

Whereas the August dates will be at smaller venues, the November 20th Anniversary shows will be at large venues. We can confirm the band will be playing in New York, Chicago, L.A. as well as additional cities that have yet to be announced. These shows will focus on the band’s history, legacy, and accomplishments over their career.

The Gish era tour will be moved to early 2009 to make way for the 20th Anniversary shows this November. Discussions are still taking place regarding which cities will be played.

Billy Corgan had this to say about the current tour line-up for 2008:

“The August tour is going to be a blast… Expect a very loud and raucous show from us…and we are very, very happy to know we will finally be playing our own shows come November in New York, L.A., and Chicago… The 20th Anniversary shows will be magical… We are already working on lots of surprises”

Thanks to everyone that waited patiently for news over the weekend. Dates will start being announced shortly so stay tuned!

I don’t see anything about the line-up there. I assume it will be the same line-up they had in 2007 which seems a little contradictory to what Billy is saying about “anniversary” and “history”, but whatever.

Tickets are already on Ticketmaster for an August 9th show at The Venue in Hammond, Indiana.
