Smashing Pumpkins share song list for tour… including “Stairway to Heaven”
Tickets for the Smashing Pumpkins “reunion” tour go on sale today, and Billy Corgan has shared a list of proposed songs for the tour to coincide with the on-sale. As Pitchfork points out, though the band said they would “exclusively” play material from their first five albums, they’re also teasing some covers, including Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” (which they recorded for the b-side of the “Disarm” single), Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” and… Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.” Come on, Billy. Don’t you listen?

At least they’re playing “Rocket.” Here’s the full list (and they’re taking suggestions too):
The other day, I shared a set of ours from 1995. Which surprisingly engendered a lot of interest, and it got me thinking why not share our pool of PROPOSED songs (meaning the list we'll use to build The Shiny and Oh So Bright set, so these aren't in any particular order). And since we are a bit aways from going into rehearsals, and I'm sure we've missed a favorite or two, tag me @williampcorgan @jamesihaofficial @chamberdrums and @jjjschroeder as well as @smashingpumpkins or #smashingpumpkins and most importantly #SP2018 with a screen cap of what you'd like to hear. But remember, the goal is to build an epic set! So choose wisely
