PiercingMetal Thoughts: I really don’t have all that much to add to this news except that the Smashing Pumpkins are another one of the bands that I never managed to get around to seeing. I was probably the first in my circle to be listening to them as I had long owned my copy of “Gish” before others began to ask me if I had heard this new hot band and their album “Siamese Dream” ;p – What do you think about this updated news? Does it make one of the dates on the run any more appealling to you? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. There has been so much to share of late its really keeping me busy here at the Media Command HQ.
