Billy Corgan has spent the last year celebrating the 30th anniversary of Smashing Pumpkins by reuniting with the band’s classic lineup for a new album, Shiny and Oh So Bright Vol. 1, and an accompanying tour. It seems the frontman is already in need of some space from the group, as he’s announced a new solo US tour for the fall.
Update: Corgan has announced a new double solo album, Cotillions, due out November 22nd. He also revealed that a new Smashing Pumpkins record will be out “soon enough.”
The 12-show jaunt opens with a three-night stand at Los Angeles’ Lodge Room on November 4th-6th. Corgan will then hit up cities like Nashville, Tennessee; Springfield, Missouri; and Coginton, Kentucky before closing down with another triple-header at New York’s Gramercy Theatre on the 18th-20th.
According to a tweet announcing the tour, Corgan will “be playing songs from his extensive catalogue,” including selections from the Pumpkins and Zwan. Solo material from efforts like 2017’s Ogilala will of course also be part of the setlists.
Corgan, who earlier this year was reunited with his Gish guitar, will next appear on Third Eye Blind’s forthcoming record (no really), Screamer, due out October 18th.
