Smashing Pumpkins Book Summer Tour With STP, Interpol + More
Smashing Pumpkins have gathered quite the lineup for their “The World Is a Vampire” tour this summer and it’s time for us all to take a bite. The band will be hitting the road for 26 dates across North America, with special guests Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots and Rival Sons providing support on select dates.
In addition, Billy Corgan’s love of wrestling will also be on display as sone of the world’s biggest champions from the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) will be competing in most cities on the touring run.
“The World Is a Vampire” tour already sold out a 30K capacity show in Mexico City and will be hitting Australia this spring before the summer is reserved for North America.
“I grew up in a world where I needed to know bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cure existed, it meant there was a place for people like me to hang out and belong. That’s what ‘The World Is A Vampire’ is about,” says Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan. “Bringing back that sense of community. If you don’t fit in, you belong here. It’s about having a shared experience and respecting others, but ultimately having fun. A true alternative festival, where all the self-proclaimed weirdos and outsiders of the world can get together and have a party.”
The artist pre-sale for the tour starts today (March 28) at 12PM local time through this Thursday (March 30) at 10PM local time. The general public on-sale then follows this Friday (March 31) at 10AM local time. Head here for all your ticketing info.
