THE SMASHING PUMPKINS have landed and with them, the great news that their Australian set will feature the band’s most star studded incarnation yet featuring Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine on drums and The Killers’ Mark Stoermer on bass guitar.
The group have been wowing audiences around the world and have noted that for their Australian shows they will be playing all their top hits as well as songs from their best received album in over 10 years, “Monuments to an Elegy”.
In further great news, as if any more was needed, we can now confirm that GERARD WAY (of My Chemical Romance) and one of Japan’s biggest rock exports ONE OK ROCK will be providing support at the band’s headline shows.
*Please note that Sydney venue has changed to Big Top Luna Park due to production share with Soundgarden at the same venue. ALL TICKETS REMAIN VALID.
