This Halloween, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS were set to perform in New York City at Brooklyn’s new Barclay’s Arena, but due to the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the show is being rescheduled. Details of the new date to be announced soon.
Having heavily disrupted the Northeast, Hurricane Sandy has also forced the band to reschedule their shows in Camden, NJ for December 8 and Fairfax, VA for December 9. The SMASHING PUMPKINS show in Uncasville, CT is also being rescheduled with the date to be announced very soon. All tickets from the original shows will be honored at:

At these arena shows, the PUMPKINS–singer/guitarist BILLY CORGAN, guitarist JEFF SCHROEDER, drummer MIKE BYRNE and bassist NICOLE FIORENTINO—are performing their new OCEANIA CD in full and for the second half of the show they play classics and deep cuts from their body of work. The PUMPKINS are backed by visuals prepared by Sean Evans, whose most recent project was assisting Roger Waters on the newest staging of “The Wall.” THE PUMPKINS are using new technology in video-mapping to create something new and previously unseen. Joining the PUMPKINS for these shows is Morning Parade.
