Smashing Pumpkins Plan Arena Tour Behind OceanaAugust 24, 2012
The Smashing Pumpkins take to arenas come October as it celebrates its latest album, Oceana
, with a complete start-to-finish performance followed by a selection of classics and deep cuts.
With the exception of designating a starting point – Oct. 10 in Seattle – today’s announcement didn’t reveal a complete schedule. Instead, a list of markets was announced. Along with Seattle, the Pumpkins will play San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit, Boston, Brooklyn, Camden, N.J., Fairfax, Va., and Uncasville, Conn.
The band released dates for Canada earlier this week.
Sean Evans, who assisted Roger Waters on his latest “Wall” tour, is working with new video-mapping technology to “create something new and previously unseen,” according to the Smashing Pumpkins’ camp.
