Well the rumors finally have been put to rest - Smashing Pumpkins are indeed doing a reunion tour. Sadly it won't be including any headlining spots at major US festivals such as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits or anything else. Smashing Pumpkins will play virtually every major US city, but not at a festival, essentially eliminating them from each festival. The good news is you will be able to see Smashing Pumpkins basically anywhere in the country, the bad news is it won't be at your festival of choice.
