Smashing Pumpkins & Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds @ Jones Beach (pics, setlists)

The Smashing Pumpkins and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds tour hit Long Island’s Jones Beach on Friday (8/9). Both groups are supporting recent records but also kept sets full of favorites. Smashing Pumpkins opened with “Today” and “Zero,” and their set also included hits like “Disarm,” “1979,” “Tonight, Tonight,” and “Cherub Rock.” They’ve also been doing a wide range of covers, lately, and Jones Beach got James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain.” They also covered that song at Camden, NJ’s BB&T Pavilion the night before and video of that is below.

Noel Gallagher may have been making a Spinal Tap-esque joke with a “Hello, New Jersey” type greeting, but if it was, the rain of boos it received confirmed the Jones Beach crowd didn’t find it funny. (“Hey, I’m not from here, how am I supposed to know where I am?” was his response.) He also cheekily introduced one of his recent High Flying Birds songs by saying, “For all of you that love Oasis, this song’s for you.” Noel did play a few Oasis songs — “Wonderwall,” “Little by Little,” “Stop Crying Your Heart Out,” and “Don’t Look Back in Anger” in the second half of the set which closed with a cover of The Beatles’ “All You Need is Love.”

AFI opened the night (they’re on the whole tour), but we missed their set. While in the NYC area, Smashing Pumpkins stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform “Knights of Malta” from Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. You can watch that, and check out setlists for Smashing Pumpkins and Noel Gallagher, below.
