The Smashing Pumpkins played two nights in a row at the Gibson Amphitheater. 'Twas an interesting experience to attend both shows. We went armed with ample knowledge of how poorly received the tour has been.
With that knowledge, the shows weren't really that bad.
Ok, that's not true. They were bad. I can't lie. But the blow was definitely softened a lot by our prepping.
This is not to say we didn't enjoy ourselves. We did. Both nights. At times, the shows were so bad, all you could do was laugh and shake your head at what an asshole Billy Corgan is. Talented asshole, but asshole through and through.
Who doesn't love watching an asshole taunt a crowd?
Some stills from Tuesday night.
Setlists, video clips, and commentary on both nights to come.
