TICKETS FOR EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR ON SALE NOW

NEW LP SHINY AND OH SO BRIGHT, VOL. 1 / LP: NO PAST. NO FUTURE. NO SUN. OUT NOW

Multi-Grammy winning rock band The Smashing Pumpkins have announced a December 11th appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The quartet will give a special outdoor performance as part of the “Jimmy Kimmel Live! Concert Series.”

 

The seminal rock band is celebrating the release of new LP SHINY AND OH SO BRIGHT, VOL. 1 / LP: NO PAST. NO FUTURE. NO SUN. Associated Press called the LP “shiny and oh so bright,” Entertainment Weekly spotlighted it on “The Must List,” Vulture said it shows a “clearly rejuvenated singer-guitarist Billy Corgan,” the San Francisco Chronicle praised its “sublime, bristling melodies” and Q magazine gave it 4 stars, pointing out its “moments of glorious burning distortion” and called single “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” “one of the most resplendent songs of their career. For a band claiming ‘no past’ and ‘no future,’ the present suits them extremely well.”  And after listening to it, Spin wrote, “we should know by now not to count Corgan out.”

 

SHINY AND OH SO BRIGHT, VOL. 1 / LP: NO PAST. NO FUTURE. NO SUN. was produced by multi-Grammy winner Rick Rubin and is the first Smashing Pumpkins LP in over 18 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin with longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder. The LP can be heard in its entirety by clicking HERE.

 

Last week the band launched their special 30th anniversary live shows with sold-out performances at The Sylvee in Madison and the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. Tickets are also now available for the band’s 2019 European headline shows (see itinerary below) – click HERE for more info.

 

Formed in Chicago, IL in 1988, The Smashing Pumpkins released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993’s 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995’s 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. With over 30 million albums sold to date, the two-time GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains one of the most influential alternative rock bands in the world.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
