[lastfm]Billy Corgan[/lastfm] and company recently kicked off their U.S. tour with a show at Los Angeles’ famed rock club, the Viper Room. Throughout the tour, the band will randomly select a group of fans to come into the venue early and listen as the they perform their sound check.
“We expect to play at least five to six songs each day,” Corgan says on the band’s website. “And if things go well possibly a little more . . . . No less than the first 20 people in line would be let in, and we will have some system where you wouldn’t lose your place in line if you have to go back out of the building.”
“We hope this will be a fun experience for everyone,” he adds.
