The Smashing Pumpkins announce London show

The Sunny And Oh So Bright Tour arrives in London this October.

The Smashing Pumpkins are bringing their Sunny And Oh So Bright Tour to London’s SSE Arena Wembley on the 16 October 2018.

Original members Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlain and longtime guitarist and keyboardist Jeff Schroeder will be bringing the band’s biggest hits to the capital.

 

The multi-award winning veterans formed in Chicago in 1988, releasing ten studio albums to date under various guises, most recently 2014’s Monuments To An Elegy.

The tour comes as the band release their first new material featuring the founding members in almost two decades. Solara dropped earlier this month, with the band performing it live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Watch the live performance below:

 

A video, directed by Nick Koenig, is expected to drop soon.

The Smashing Pumpkins have celebrated huge success across their career, notable for hit singles Tonight, Tonight, Disarm, Ava Adore and more.

Their lengthy back-catalogue includes ’90s albums Gish, Siamese Dream, US No.1 smash Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, and Adore.

Since the turn of the century Corgan has led the charge with the likes of Zeitgeist and Oceania.

The newly reformed outfit celebrate their legacy when they reach London’s SSE Arena Wembley on the 16 October 2018.

Tickets for The Smashing Pumpkins in London will be available from 9:00 on Friday 22 June 2018 through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
