If you haven’t gotten a chance to see the reunited Smashing Pumpkins on the Shiny and Oh So Bright tour, Friday night (Aug. 24) is your chance. The Chicago band will live stream their show from Seattle, Washington’s Key Arena starting at 11:15 p.m. ET on Twitter as part of the Live Nation Concert series, available in the U.S. here and outside the States here.
The band is in the midst of its first tour in almost 20 years featuring singer/guitarist (and only constant member) Billy Corgan, drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and back-in-the-fold guitarist James Iha, as well as keyboard player Katie Cole, bassist Jack Bates and third guitarist Jeff Schroeder. The reformed band released the single “Solara” in June, the first song from a pair of EPs reportedly produced by Rick Rubin; no release date has been announced for the albums yet.
The current North American tour is slated to wrap up on Sept. 9 in Edmonton, Canada at Rogers Place before heading to Europe in October.
