The wife bought a ticket the day they went on sale. Then decided she wouldn't be able to finish up trick or treating with the girls and get to the Newport in time so sold the ticket on eBay for a nice $30 profit. After reading the "review" posted here, she's very happy about her decision.

the first hour was acoustic (though all the guitars were distorted) and featured covers such as "monster mash", "wipeout" and "hang on sloopy". there were no pumpkins songs. it was amusing for a couple songs, but wore thin when the band seemed to not really know how to play said tunes.

then there was a twenty or so minute break.

when they came back out for an electric set, they played three or so singles in the next hour and a half. i didn't really know anything else they played.

i wish i had my money and night back.

set 1 ("acoustic")
1. louie, louie
2. hang on sloopy
3. the monster mash
4. wipeout
5. some instrumental with poole on flute
6. the gambler
7. some blues song
8. in-a-gadda-da-vida (guest vocals by a dude in a dodgers sweatshirt)
--- faked nervous breakdown (end set 1) ---

set 2 (electric)
1. tarantula
2. g.l.o.w.
3. siva
4. speed kills
5. superchrist
6. as rome burns
7. the sounds of silence
8. a song for a son
9. today
10. bullet with butterfly wings
11. heavy metal machine
12. glass' theme

They came in to eat at the restaurant where I work on Thursday night. All in all, much nicer than I expected, although they did bring their own chef...

They spent the whole time talking about AC/DC and how they are releasing their CD through Wal-Mart and trying to remember how various rock stars died. Everyone at the table seemed like some kind of yuppie Memphis Mafia to Corgan's Elvis.

not surprised at all. smashing pumpkins sorry-ass live show changed my life forever in 1996. in a matter of hours, they managed to drive my teen self away from the entire alternative radio genre and into the waiting arms of a thousand indie, diy, and punk bands. they epitomized the word bullshit that night and i can only imagine things have gone downhill since.

they're not the pumpkins i idolized but to call the show a travesty is really lame. first set? (if you can call it that) washorrendous. and except for hang on sloopy not funny at all. not sure what was going on.

second set wasn't as creative as i wouldve hoped, at least they played siva. i washoping with fingers crossed billy would play blank page cos that wouldve been perfect. but instead i got heavy metal machine oh well.

not too concernd about the money. it's not llike theres been any other shows to piss 45 dollars into. and looking at calendars it looks like there won't be for a long time.

i'll always payto see the pumpkins as long as that great bald giant is looming over the frontof the stage.

If he sang in his usual singing voice then I am sure it was truly awful.

Exactly. Fuck that asshole and fuck anyone who went to this show expecting anything other than the aural equivalent of an uncomfortable, unsuccessful enema. No offense. The one and only time I saw Smashing Pumpkins (Lollapalooza 1994), I left after hearing only one song. It was sordid and stupid, and I haven't given that douchebag a dime of my money since then. And I've had a trust issue with bald men ever since. I can't even watch Deal Or No Deal. Thanks, Billy!

A+, tiger yang, A+.

Awesome thread all around. If only we you all could do this to every shitty band across the land.

Next up, the Hold Steady.

I, for one, am completely shocked that Smashing Pumpkins managed to nab $40+ from consumers’ pockets in return for a hack-fest of a show that apparently lacked as much quality as it did originality. Especially given the band’s oeuvre … I mean really, this is too much.

Next time just sit at home and flush $40 in quarters down the toilet. You can listen to whatever music you want while doing this, and occasionally the toilet will clog up and will spit quarters back at you, making you feel like you’re actually getting something out of it.



"that apprently lacked"??

see im getting the whiff of the stink of pre-show opinions here. you didn't go to the show but you still feel the need to post a doubleparagraph opinion about the show (thatyou never saw). howzabout you start your own thread, like BSuperstar was at least eager enough to admit, about how you already hated billy and the pumpkins and you would have hated whatever show they played (if you had actually seen it).

actually all i'll admit to was there was once this band of longhairs called smashing pumpkins that put out a single or two that ruled, and then a full-length on caroline that was pretty fucking good, a long, long time ago.

i hear their name got used for a decade or so by some mopeyassed bald dude and his band of major-label post-goths, but whenever i'd try to listen to their music my brain would shut down and i'd go into a diabetic-like coma until someone would put on something that rocked again.

So do you guys go to Aerosmith concerts and hope they play Toys in the Attic from start to finish, too?

I neither know nor care about Smooshing Pumpkers, but I do know that expecting a decent show from a band that hasn't released a decent album in a very long time is a sign of hopeless optimism at the very least.
