Smashing Pumpkins fans, listen up. The famous American alt-rock band has returned, taking over the Pepsi Center on September 5 as part of their “Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour.” To celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary, Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin will return to Denver with the help of a to-be-determined bassist to replace D’arcy Wretzky, the band’s founding bassist.
“This show and staging will be unlike any we’ve ever done, and will feature a set unlike any we’ve ever played. For if this is a chance at a new beginning, we plan on ushering it in with a real bang,” said Corgan in a press release.
The band will embark on a full tour with a massive 36-city tour, spanning all over North America. The set list will include hits from the ensemble’s first five albums, including Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina/The Machines of God. Since their inception in 1988, Smashing Pumpkins has received a multitude of awards including an American Music Award, Grammy Awards and numerous MTV Video Music Awards, with a specific highlight on their music video, “Tonight, Tonight.” Though they’re playing the Pepsi Center this time around, they also played Red Rocks in 2015 with Marilyn Manson. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 23.
