The Smashing Pumpkins completed their 13 USA tour dates and they are now on their way to continue in Europe. So far, the Smashing Pumpkins have played several new songs from their upcoming album, namely, My Love is Winter, Oceania, Pale Horse, Panopticon, Pinwheels, & Quasar. They also pulled out old tunes from their large catalog, including fan favorites that hadn’t been played in years, such as Thru the Eyes of Ruby & Geek USA.
Also during the tour, there were fan meet-ups conducted by Smashing Pumpkins producer Kerry Brown, along with fan help. The meetings tended to be informative meetings, as well as a kind of focus group where fans were asked what they were looking for to come out of the SP archive. At a few of the later SPRC meet-ups, Billy Corgan & band members stopped by to take some questions from those in attendance.
