The Smashing Pumpkins are going back to Russia for only the 2nd time and will be play 2 shows.  The band last played for the people of Russia 15 years ago, back in 1998.

They will return to Moscow on August 6th  and will play St. Petersburg for the first time on August 5th. What is also interesting is that on the Aug 5th page it mentions “vip” at 3 different prices. We are yet to be aware if this means VIP shows are opening up beyond the USA but we will see.

Here is some footage of the Smashing Pumpkins last stop in Russia:
