Who's going to be in the band? Will it just be Billy Corgan and a load of 21 year old session musicians?
Asking for trouble mate.
I'll probably go.
Look for Jimmy Chamberlain to pull a John Wilkes Boothe
they may as well be called Zwan. In fact Zwan had more Pumpkins in than the Pumpkins do....

Just one of b0llys many lies
...been together a good few years now. Last academy tour was plenty enjoyable if a little sedate. Waaaaaaaaay better than the arena tour a few years back. Yikes
Worth seeing, but only for the new stuff. Saw them last time round and the new stuff sounded great, while the old stuff (what very little of it they played) sounded as if they were doing it because they felt they ought to. If you don't like their new stuff it isn't worth going- you'll be disappointed.
They did play some great tracks like Starla, Muzzle, and Cherub Rock when I saw them on their last tour, but it did feel like it was a bit forced. I think their new material took up about two thirds of the set!

I could've consulted Mr Google, of course.
