Smashing Pumpkins & Jane’s Addiction Announce Fall Tour


Smashing Pumpkins and Jane's Addiction have rolled out their 32-date joint "Spirits On Fire Tour" set for this fall. The arena run kicks off on October 2nd at Dallas' American Airlines Center and wraps on November 19th at L.A.'s Hollywood Bowl.

The Pumpkins are currently on the road, and the upcoming gigs mark Jane's first full-scale tour dates since 2016.

Billy Corgan told us that he's been aware for years how much the early-Pumpkins albums have influenced the music that came in their wake: ["Overly masculine kind of invested rock on paper doesn't seem to have a lot to do with what we did. But then, I've gotten to know Fred Durst a little bit, and the Smashing Pumpkins are, like, one of his favorite bands. When he was 16, 17, he was listening to Gish and Siamese (Dream). So, y'know, somehow along the way, we had to do Nirvana, and that approach seemed to invest itself into, like, what becomes heavier and heavier. So, I don't think it's a peer thing so much as it's just part of a lineage. I'm not taking the credit or the blame."]  SOUNDCUE (:34 OC: . . .or the blame)

Not too long ago, Perry Farrell told us that he counts himself lucky to have found his place in the world through Jane's Addiction: ["Well, y'know, I still cherish being in Jane's Addiction, as hard as it is, y'know? I can't say that my band and I are friends, and there was a time we didn't like each other at all, but I would say that I love being in Jane's Addiction so much, it overrides any kind of like shortcomings I might see in them and they might see in me."] SOUNDCUE (:21 OC: . . . see in me)

Smashing Pumpkins perform on Friday night (May 13th) in Santa Barbara, California at The Santa Barbara Bowl.
