Smashing Pumpkins Unveil Dates and Venues for 2012 Fall Arena Tour
About a week ago, the Smashing Pumpkins announced their plans for a fall arena tour set to kick off in early October. While the cities for the trek were announced, the dates and locations were still a mystery until now.
Traveling from coast to coast, the 14 date tour kicks off in Everett, Wash., on Oct. 10 at the Comcast Arena and wraps up nearly a month later clear across the country on Nov. 4 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
According to a press release, the live shows will be set up in two distinct sets. The first set will feature the Pumpkins playing their latest disc ‘Oceania’ in full, followed by the second set of classic tunes and deep cuts from their full discography.
In addition to the music, the visuals promise to be stunning as well. The band has hired Sean Evans to create the eye-appealing landscape for their live show which promises some innovative and never before seen technology.
