Billy Corgan recently discussed his upcoming tour with Marilyn Manson, what the pair are dubbing the ‘End Of Times Tour’.
Corgan told Rolling Stone: “Anybody who calls us a nostalgia show does not know what the fuck they are talking about. Seriously. I mean, he has just released one of the best albums of his career, and my last two albums were super highly reviewed and well received, so they don’t know what the fuck they are talking about.”
The frontman added: “That’s a nostalgia-sentimentality-based business that I am not a part of. It’s like saying because one movie company makes cartoons and another company makes movies, I’m in the cartoon business. I feel like people lump me into the cartoon business, and I don’t want to be in the cartoon business. It’s very simple: You’ve got two great artists, two great histories, still making great music. We are going to go out and kick ass as good or better than somebody in their twenties or thirties or whatever. Either believe it or don’t – but if you don’t, then you will miss something that you rarely see, which in this case will be three hours of really powerful music. I mean, there is a point where you can’t apologize for that, or you can’t really explain it to someone who’s got their head up their ass with a selfie stick.”
Meanwhile, Billy Corgan recently launched an “artisanal tasting box” of vegan and paleo food through subscription service Farm to People. The limited-edition gift basket, which will be priced at $129.95 (£85), contains items such as sprouted hazelnut butter, bourbon smoked sea salt and chunky coconut raw chocolate bars.
