The other day, I shared a set of ours from 1995. Which surprisingly engendered a lot of interest, and it got me thinking why not share our pool of PROPOSED songs (meaning the list we'll use to build The Shiny and Oh So Bright set, so these aren't in any particular order). And since we are a bit aways from going into rehearsals, and I'm sure we've missed a favorite or two, tag me @williampcorgan @jamesihaofficial @chamberdrums and @jjjschroeder as well as @smashingpumpkins or #smashingpumpkins and most importantly #SP2018 with a screen cap of what you'd like to hear. But remember, the goal is to build an epic set! So choose wisely
The feel good vibes continue in anticipation of their 30th anniversary tour as the Smashing Pumpkins continued to stir the pot of fan excitement this week. Billy Corgan posted online a list of potential songs from the band’s classic era that could make up the set list for the long-anticipated tour reunion between himself, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin. Jeff Schroder who has played with Corgan as a member of the Pumpkins over the past few years will be in the fold as well. The tour will feature SP focusing on the albums Gish to Adore.
It’s intriguing to see Corgan teasing some choice cover songs from David Bowie, Led Zepplin, and Joy Division.
You may have read about the drama with original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky but let’s get past that and focus on what grand songs we might hear on August 13th when they return to the United Center.
