In related news, Smashing Pumpkins recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of their seminal record Siamese Dream with a re-creation of their iconic album release event in 1993.
Fans were treated to a special Tower Records pop-up at Madame Zuzu’s in Highland Park, Illinois, which culminated in two exclusive performances by the band on 17 September, where they recreated the set played on the evening of 27 July, 1993.

Earlier this year, Billy Corgan said most people don’t know what Smashing Pumpkins records are about.
“It doesn’t bother me, because it’s the same way for Mellon Collie and Machina,” Corgan explained, saying, “Most people don’t know what the records are really about. They’re focused on their favourite song or their favourite drum solo or whatever. It’s totally fine. The last 20-something years of social media have taught me to respect the fact that everybody has their own level of engagement, and any engagement is good.”
