Although the tour – which sees support from Bones – shares the same name with the band’s postponed 2020 trek, many of the original dates have not been rescheduled.

The 18-date jaunt will instead see Billy Corgan and co. visit cities such as Tucson, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Birmingham, Greensboro, and Columbus. They will also play Beale Street Music Festival right before the tour kicks off.

Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday (February 25) at 10am local time, with pre-sale launched today (February 23). Get tickets here, and see the full tour schedule below.

Smashing Pumpkins last album was 2020’s ‘CYR’, which in a three-star review NME said: “Corgan has undoubtedly created the ‘contemporary record’ he so craved; it’s far better than anything Corgan produced when he was running with the Pumpkins name on his own.

“It’s also amazing that after all the bad blood and messy break ups, he’s more adept at penning an accessible tune than he’s ever been.”

Last July, Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder said the band were “halfway through working on another big album”.
