The Smashing Pumpkins "Reunion" Tour Doesn't Seem to Be Selling That Well

The Smashing Pumpkins "Reunion" Tour Doesn't Seem to Be Selling That Well
One of music's biggest stories of 2018 so far is the Smashing Pumpkins embarking a reunion tour of sorts. The trek features frontman Billy Corgan teaming up once again with drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist James Iha, while declining to include original bassist D'Arcy Wretzky. However excited fans of the band may be after the promise of an "epic" setlist, a number of shows on the run don't seem to be selling out fast.

As Consequence of Sound notes, a number of markets for the band's forthcoming "Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour" still have plenty of tickets available, as shown by arena seating charts. Twitter user @solace pointed out that particularly weak markets at this point are Pittsburgh, Detroit, Omaha, Sioux Falls and Salt Lake City.

UPDATE (2/27, 2 p.m. EST): Despite the tour allegedly not selling well in some places, the Smashing Pumpkins have added additional stops in L.A. and Chicago. The band will perform additional nights in Chicago on August 14 and Los Angeles on August 31.

Of course, tickets for the stadium shows aren't particularly cheap. Standard tickets for the band's stop in Toronto range from $65 to $150 CAD (plus fees), while Ticketmaster's Platinum Tickets on the arena floor (which are dynamically priced based on demand) can be had from $800 to $999 CAD.

A look at the seating chart for the tour kickoff show in Glendale, AZ, shows plenty of seats available at a number of price points. You can look over further seating charts from the tour's scheduled stops below.
