Watch Smashing Pumpkins’ First Performance With New Lineup
These aren't your father's Smashing Pumpkins.
On Wednesday night (Nov. 26), Billy Corgan debuted the band's brand new lineup at Chicago's Thalia Hall featuring former Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave drummer Brad Wilk and the Killers' bassist Mark Stoermer.
The Pumpkins played an extensive set including a cover of David Bowie's 'Fame' along with 'Being Beige,' One and All,' 'Tiberius' and 'Drum + File' -- all from the upcoming album, 'Monuments to an Elegy.'
Also of note: The band's merch included T-shirts featuring the phrase, “F--k You, Anderson Cooper,” playing off Corgan's recent, outspoken disdain for the journalist after Cooper mocked Corgan and his cats posing for the cover of PAWS Chicago -- a magazine distributed by a no-kill animal organization.
