Published Aug 20, 2012Smashing Pumpkins released their album Oceania earlier this summer, and the alt-rock band are getting set to treat their Canadian fans to a national tour this fall.
Following a couple of Mexican shows in October, the group will hit the road in our country in October. They have six shows throughout the month, with stops in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. See the schedule below. Most of the tickets go on sale this week, so get more information over at the band's official website.
As for what to expect from the shows, definitely don't expect Billy Corgan and co. to give a faithful run-through of all their old hits. The opinionated frontman recent told Exclaim!, "If we don't lead with new music, we don't lead with anything."
