Smashing Pumpkins released their not-half-bad new album, Monuments To An Elegy, this week, and Billy Corgan's current version of the band celebrated in NYC last night (12/8), their final of four release shows in different cities. For these shows, Billy was backed by current Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder, as well as Rage Against the Machine/Black Sabbath drummer Brad Wilk and The Killers bassist Mark Stoermer. Last night's intimate show (much smaller than 2012's Barclays Center show) included about half of the new album, and a handful of their '90s faves like "Bullet with Butterfly Wings," "Tonight, Tonight," "Disarm," "Hummer," "Silverfuck," "Zero" and "Drown" from the Singles soundtrack. Pictures of the show are in this post.
In other news, Billy Corgan has now publicly made up with Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson, following about 15 years of beef. Good year for Courtney Love ending beefs, having probably made up with Dave Grohl earlier this year too.
