A string of up-close and personal club shows with the [lastfm]Smashing Pumpkins [/lastfm]have been announced, giving fans the first chance to see the alternative legends on tour in two years.
From July 6 through July 21, [lastfm]Billy Corgan [/lastfm]and company will perform a handful of shows at smaller, more intimate venues across America. If that wasn’t cool enough, Corgan has also announced on the group’s site that there is an extra treat being added to the mix, too.
“We are going to do something unique, which is play an invite-only set during sound check of almost all new, unreleased songs,” Corgan said. “We’re still figuring out a way to make it possible for some of the fans who’ll be in the line outside waiting to get in for that.”
Corgan commented that rehearsals for the club tour “have been fantastic.” The Smashing Pumpkins will be appearing in the cities below.
