Yeah, late spring/summer, I guess.

Unless of course, fans only stay for the singles and skip the rest of the gig, meaning SP will go, play 3 songs, then leave – but it’ll be cheap :roll:

So apparently I don't post very often these days

Agreed, I’d love the 4 day residency that Billy mentioned…. since he has family in FL, he better come here!

HA! Would be funny if SP takes the same attitude towards concerts. Why wouldn’t they? Play one new single, then encore, then peace out! Makes no cents, right?

I’d guess on a few ‘secret’ or low-key shows this year… Hopefully we’re able to hear some recordings or see new videos. :)

Umm …I was right :D

"SP.com can now announce that there will be new six tour dates in Southern California between August 26th and 31st.

The dates will be for Billy Corgan with special guests Spirits In the Sky.

Cities and venues will be announced shortly, but for those of you in the Los Angeles area, there will be six shows for you to check out!"

sweet!! Are you able to video tape some of it with a cell phone at minimum?
I wonder if they will post a setlist before the show so we can get our eyes on the names of new songs..
You know you have to take pics (and if they are hot Billy pics they belong in that thread ;) )

worst case scenario a cell phone video

mind you-

and not to spoil any excitement!-

these shows are currently presented and ‘billed’ as Billy Corgan with The Spirits in the Sky….etc etc etc…

as far as we ‘officially’ know as per now:
The Smashing Pumpkins are: BILLY CORGAN

however:
these shows are NOT presented nor billed as:
The Smashing Pumpkins….

i’d say: ‘hold your horses’!!!-

to me this sounds and ‘reeks’ like a genuine chance for Billy to keep the ‘spirit’ of and from the ‘memorial’ show alive, plus: to ‘road-test’ some of his new and recent tunes’—

under the ‘Billy Corgan’ bill and moniker, he can do whatever he likes, want, whatever; for sure: maybe éven more so, with the ‘help’ of/from The Spirits in the Sky…

under the ‘The Smashing Pumpkins’ bill and moniker, all would be high-profile news, headlines, major scrutiny and all…

i’d say we’re seeing a ‘ZWAN’-thingy here-
– just start up and out small scale, intimate venues, maybe even kinda like- totally insanely small clubs or bars or whatever or last-minute gigs or open-mic stuff; just low-key…
– here, there, anywhere; pop-up; pop-under…
– get some buzz going, but nothing too big or crazy…
– build upon that, let it grow, naturally…
– test songs, structures, ideas, lyrics, themes; whatever on a live audience…
– take note, evaluate it all; record the best; release those; as an EP; by what name?- that just HAS to be: The Smashing Pumpkins…
– tadah!- keeping expectations low and still getting the feedback you need and want-
– tadah!- maintaining the high-profile band-name and releasing when all is due!-

crazy idea?

just my two cents :)
