AFI frontman Davey Havok, Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook, and members of The Killers are all on the lineup.

The Smashing Pumpkins unveiled a star-studded list of special guests set to perform alongside the band's 30th Anniversary Performance at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, N.J. on Aug. 2.

It was announced today (July 31) that AFI frontman Davey Havok, Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook, The Killers members Dave Keuning and Mark Stoermer, Courtney Love, Mark McGrath and Deftones frontman Chino Moreno will be joining the show. The special performance, which was announced due to an overwhelming demand for a second New York date, will feature a career-spanning setlist, covers, never before seen production and more surprises.

The Smashing Pumpkins are currently on the road for their Shiny And Oh So Bright North American arena tour, produced by Live Nation. Earlier this summer, the band also dropped "Solara," the first recording in over 18 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin, as well as Jeff Schroeder.

With nine studio albums and over 30 million albums sold to date, the Grammy-award winning band remains an influential force in alternative rock.

Tickets for the 30th Anniversary Performance are available on the Smashing Pumpkins website, Live Nation and on the Live Nation App.
