Smashing Pumpkins and Jane's Addiction kick off their 32-date joint “Spirits On Fire Tour” on Sunday (October 2nd) at Dallas' American Airlines Center. The 32-city trek wraps on November 19th at L.A.'s Hollywood Bowl, with he upcoming gigs marking Jane's first full-scale tour dates since 2016.
Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan explained that the last thing he ever wanted was for the band to reunite and be viewed as a nostalgia act: “To go back under the Smashing Pumpkins name engendered a lot of people expecting us to be nothing more than a reunion band, playing its greatest hits, and with a fan base not particularly keen to listen to the new music. What I try to tell people that get caught up in the reunion kind of concepts — like where are the original members and stuff like this — the band was founded on an idea that it must be progressive and it must always be moving forward.”
