Smashing Pumpkins add second Atlanta date

The Smashing Pumpkins may only be sporting two of the original four members, but that’s not stopping the hype machine. Their first show in Atlanta in nearly a decade sold out in a few minutes. Shortly after, they added a second date at the fabulous Fox Theatre.

The good news is that Atlanta Pumpkins fans won’t be subjected to the opening aural travesty that is Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party. Instead, the Atlanta shows will feature Texas post-rockers Explosions in the Sky as the Pumpkins’ opener. Hopefully, Explosions in the Sky won’t suffer the same fate as that of Atlanta band Deerhunter — being booted off the tour after an altercation with the Pumpkins’ infamously difficult frontman, Billy Corgan.

Smashing Pumpkins (w/ Explosions in the Sky) – Fox Theatre, Oct. 30-31
