Smashing Pumpkins announce North America tour

Smashing Pumpkins have revealed they will tour North America in March and April.

Frontman Billy Corgan is hitting the road with original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Schroeder for the 19-date run. Support comes from singer-songwriter Liz Phair – who hasn’t toured the US in six years.

Corgan previously said that it would be “inorganic” to reform the original Smashing Pumpkins lineup with bassist D’arcy Wretzky and guitarist James Iha, adding that, “People rarely get out of original reunions what they think they’re gonna get.”

The Pumpkins’ current lineup put out Monuments To An Elegy in December 2014, with Day For Night slated for release this year.
