Smashing Pumpkins to tour Oceania

Gigs & Festivals

Smashing Pumpkins

Bald Billy Corgan and his Smashing Pumpkins are touring in the strange wake of their new ‘LP-within-an-LP’, ‘Oceania’, soon.

Word is they’ll be deploying “new technology in video mapping to create something new and previously unseen”, so that’s nice.

The band have just released the applicable dates for us all to look at, so, for Billy’s sake, do so now. They’ll go on sale Friday at 9am.

1 Jul: Manchester, Academy
2 Jul: Glasgow, Academy
22 Jul: London, Wembley Arena
