Now this is a whole lot of coolness to check out care of The Smashing Pumpkins. Take a look.
The Press Release:
GRAMMY® Award-winning, acclaimed alternative rock pioneers, The Smashing Pumpkins today announced a national sweepstakes for a 1979 House Party. Inspired by their iconic “1979” music video the band will perform an intimate show at a secret residential location in Los Angeles, CA on June 28, 2018 ahead of their upcoming Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, kicking off on July 12, 2018.
The sweepstakes winner and a guest will receive exclusive access to the 1979 House Party, a Yamaha guitar, round-trip flights to Los Angeles, CA, a two-night stay at a Hilton property, and a cash card for ground transportation. Sweepstakes rules and entry information can be found HERE. The 1979 House Party is sponsored by Live Nation, Hilton, and Yamaha.
Produced by Live Nation, the Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour is The Smashing Pumpkins’ first tour in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha. The 39-city outing will kick off in Glendale, AZ on July 12, 2018 and visit North American arenas throughout the summer. Indie rock band Metric will support them on the tour. Tickets are available at LiveNation.com and SmashingPumpkins.com.
The monumental tour, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation, will highlight music from the group’s inception through 2000, and will exclusively feature material from their groundbreaking debut Gish through Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina. Longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder will also take part, as the band moves to a three guitar lineup to better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums.
Formed in Chicago, IL in 1988, The Smashing Pumpkins released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993’s 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995’s 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. With nine studio albums and over 30 million albums sold to date, the GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains an influential force in alternative rock.
Smashing Pumpkins 2018 North American Tour Dates were all lined out on the website in a post of their own which you can access HERE.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Gosh what can I possibly add to something like this other than it sounds “TOTALLY AWESOME”. I don’t know about you, but I am always up for that private super VIP Experience that gives you some goodies, a nice time away from the usual grueling routine and an intimate show by the band. Sign me up for sure. Too bad they aren’t doing this in our own Big Apple since we are the city that never sleeps. Of course I wouldn’t mind a few days in sunny California. What do you readers think about this? Are you planning on trying your luck and entering? I hope you do and if you win be sure to post a billion photos to your Instagram. Check you later and before I go I should line out that my June 28th is completely open for those of you who are in need of a plus one.
