Smashing Pumpkins are getting ready for their Shiny and Oh So Bright reunion tour this summer, which marks the band’s 30th anniversary, and frontman Billy Corgan has posted a list of songs that he, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin are considering performing within their setlist on the road.
So, what should fans expect from this run? The list includes lots of Pumpkins classics, such as “Cherub Rock,” “Today,” “1979,” and “Bullet with Butterfly Wings.”
The Smashing Pumpkins say they’ll perform songs from their first five albums on this tour, from 1991’s “Gish” to 2000’s “Machina/The Machines of God.”
Corgan also says to request a track on social media using the tag #SP2018.

The other day, I shared a set of ours from 1995. Which surprisingly engendered a lot of interest, and it got me thinking why not share our pool of PROPOSED songs (meaning the list we'll use to build The Shiny and Oh So Bright set, so these aren't in any particular order). And since we are a bit aways from going into rehearsals, and I'm sure we've missed a favorite or two, tag me @williampcorgan @jamesihaofficial @chamberdrums and @jjjschroeder as well as @smashingpumpkins or #smashingpumpkins and most importantly #SP2018 with a screen cap of what you'd like to hear. But remember, the goal is to build an epic set! So choose wisely
