Smashing Pumpkins To Pay Tribute To Adore On Upcoming Tour

Yesterday, the Smashing Pumpkins announced the Smashing Pumpkins: In Plainsong acoustic tour, a series of 8 concert dates in the United States before starting their greater North American tour with Marilyn Manson, the Endtimes Tour. Earlier this morning, the headman himself Mr. Corgan gave more details into the happenings of the upcoming setlists being planned for the In Plainsong tour, on twitter. He tweeted saying the middle of the set would feature “Adore-era songs featured as written+surprises”. The full tweet can be viewed below:

The Smashing Pumpkins’ Adore was released June 2nd, 1998 on Virgin Records, recorded through June 1997 through March 1998, with demos starting in February 1997. The first album to not feature drummer Jimmy Chamberlain after his termination, the album featured Filter’s/Morrissey’s drummer Matt Walker, Soundgarden’s Matt Cameron, Beck’s Joey Waronker and especially drum machines and loops filling in on drums. Corgan’s vision for the album was to synthesize folk and electronica, to make a sound both “ancient” and “futuristic”. As the tour’s subtitle is “An Acoustic-Electro Evening”, it would be hard to avoid including Adore-era songs into the set, as the album was the intersection of acoustic and electro music.

    The tour is now a 2 week acoustic Adore warm up, then a 2 month in support of Monuments? I read solo and Zwan will be featured, I hope this is for the entirety of the tour as it will determine if I attend. Anyone know if SP or Manson are the actual headliner? And I would anticipate with their combined fanbase, an SF and LA show would have been a guarantee, but neither got a date. Its exciting to see SP playing arenas again finally.
