Why see Smashing Pumpkins?

the Smashing Pumpkins North America tour!

The Smashing Pumpkins are back this summer with their North America tour. Billy Corgan's Grammy-awarded rock band created some of the most iconic tracks of the 90s, fashioning an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop. Many line-up changes later, don't miss them live in 2024 as they take to the road!

Who Are The Smashing Pumpkins?

Of all the major alternative rock bands of the early '90s, the Smashing Pumpkins were the group least influenced by traditional underground rock. Lead guitarist/songwriter Billy Corgan fashioned an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop, creating a layered, powerful sound driven by swirling, distorted guitars. Corgan was wise enough to exploit his angst-ridden lyrics, yet he never shied away from rock star posturing, even if he did cloak it in allegedly ironic gestures. In fact, the Smashing Pumpkins became the model for alternative rock success - Nirvana was too destructive and Pearl Jam shunned success.

Smashing Pumpkins fan since Gish

WHY CAN'T I GIVE THEM 10 STARS!!???

Saw the guys play at the Ampitheatre in Chula Vista last night. Been feeling kinda down lately with work stress. That's all fixed now! After the first 2 songs, I could have ridden a happiness-high for about a month. However after 20 songs back-to-back with no breaks, now my mind is delirious! I attended alone with my husband because he didn't want to pay the ticket price. I'll be dragging him next tour for sure. Why the heck I waited 33 years to see them live is beyond me. I loved how they did different versions of so many songs too! Nice venue, food and drinks were pricey but expected. I'll definitely come back to this ampitheatre for future concerts. ... Read more

Great performance bad acoustics

Excellent performance, sound was muffled. The instruments drowned out Billy’s voice… left me craving crisper vocals. ... Read more

Amazingly Brilliant

The set list was very well balanced with new and classic songs. The band was extremely tight, polished and seasoned. The performance was deliberate and a pure joy to experience. ... Read more
