When The Smashing Pumpkins first emerged out of Chicago in 1988, the world had never heard a band quite like them. They spun together rock, pop, shoe-gaze, metal, goth, psychedelia, and electronic into a kaleidoscope of saccharine melodies, fuzzy distortion, bombastic orchestration, incendiary fretwork, eloquent songcraft, and unshakable hooks. 

The Smashing Pumpkins announced their 26-date North American ‘The World is a Vampire Tour’ recently. Produced by Live Nation, the tour is set to start on Friday 28th July at The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
