Smashing Pumpkins have announced their 2018 ‘Shiny And Oh So Bright’ Tour. According to a teaser video (watch below), the band’s current lineup is Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin, and Jeff Schroeder. See Smashing Pumpkins 2018 tour dates below.

The Smashing Pumpkins tour will feature material from the band’s first 5 albums: Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina/The Machines of God. Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 23.

In a press release, Billy Corgan said, “Some 30 years ago, as The Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha and I began a musical journey in the cramped rear bedroom of my Father’s house. And so it’s magic to me that we’re able to coalesce once more around the incredible Jimmy Chamberlin, to celebrate those songs we’ve made together.”

The ‘Shiny And Oh So Bright’ tour video includes original Siamese Dream album cover stars Ali Laenger and LySandra Roberts:

The announcement comes after weeks (years?) of bitter back-and-forth between Corgan and former bassist D’arcy Wretzky. The two have played a prolonged blame game about D’arcy’s exclusion from the reunion. In a press release, the Smashing Pumpkins said, “Ms. Wretzky has repeatedly been invited out to play with the group, participate in demo sessions, or at the very least, meet face-to-face, and in each and every instance she always deferred.” Wretzky publicly shared text exchanges between herself and Corgan revealing that she’d expressed interest in being involved. In an interview with Alternative Nation, she said of Corgan, “I honestly think he may have a brain tumor. He’s always been insufferable.”
