Huge Smashing Pumpkins gig to be live-streamed on Twitter tomorrow

The gig from Seattle will be streamed on Twitter this Friday, August 24

Smashing Pumpkins have announced that they will stream a gig from their ‘Shiny And Oh So Bright’ tour via the Live Nation Concert Series on Twitter.

The live-stream will take place on August 24 at 8:15pm PT (04:15 GMT). Fans outside the US can stream the gig here.

The band’s current North American tour is the band’s first in almost twenty-years featuring original members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin.

Jeff Schroeder, Jack Bates and Katie Cole are also playing with the band live, with the band hoping that their new, three-guitar set-up will emulate the textured sounds of their albums more closely.

In June, Smashing Pumpkins dropped a new single ‘Solara’, their first recording in over eighteen years to feature founding members Corgan, Iha and Chamberlin.

The band are due to play London’s SSE Wembley Arena on October 16 and you can buy tickets for the event using the link above.
