The amazing setlist for their 30th!
Not sure how the Smashing Pumpkins will top their 30th Anniversary celebration. Billy Corgan and company pulled out all the stops at New Jersey’s PNC Bank Arts Center on Thursday night. The show, part of their “Shiny And Oh So Bright” reunion tour, was a star-studded affair with the band joined by a number of special guests.
