Billy Corgan and band to play London, Manchester and Glasgow in July
Smashing Pumpkins have revealed they will play three UK tour dates later this year.
The band, led by Billy Corgan, will play three shows in July including dates in Manchester, Glasgow and a huge show at London’s Wembley Arena. Starting in Manchester on July 1, Smashing Pumpkins will perform in Glasgow on July 2 before returning later in the month for their London gig (July 22).
Having undergone numerous changes in recent years, Smashing Pumpkins’ current line up sees Corgan as the sole original member appearing alongside guitarist Jeff Schroeder, drummer Mike Byrne and bassist/vocalist Nicole Fiorentino. The band released their latest album ‘Oceania’ in June 2012. The record was the seventh of the band’s career and their first since 2009’s ‘Teargarden By Kaleidescope’.
