PiercingMetal Thoughts: Oddly enough, I’ve never seen Billy’s main band The Smashing Pumpkins in concert and since his solo jaunts are far less frequent the same can be applied to those gigs. The Pumpkins recently released their latest work on Napalm Records which is a favored label of mine and one has to expect that any future solo work will come care of them as well. As I don’t know what to expect from these shows I’m very curious about seeing at least one of them at the Gramercy where you see he will be for three nights. What do you readers think about this short tour announcement? Is this something that you would be interested in seeing? Chime in down below with your thoughts.
Now this is a whole lot of coolness to check out care of The Smashing Pumpkins. Take a look.
