Smashing Pumpkins announce massive, star-studded 30th anniversary show

Smashing Pumpkins have unveiled a massive list of special guests who will be joining their 30th anniversary show on August 02.

Taking place at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, the band have announced they'll be joined with guest spots from New Order bassist Peter Hook, The Deftones' Chino Moreno, Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath and Dave Keuning and Mark Stoemer of the Killers. They've also announced the surprising involvement of Billy Corgan's ex-girlfriend Courtney Love, with whom Corgan has shared substantial historical beef, with Love saying as recently as July 10th that she wished for him to "get over it". 

The show will form part of the band's Shiny And Oh So Bright 2018 Tour, which saw all the band's original members – bar bassist D’arcy Wretzky – reunite for a series of dates to celebrate the band's legacy. Find full dates below.

The band released new single Solara earlier this month. More new material is expected to follow later this year.
