Smashing Pumpkins to play Guitar Center Sessions May 17th 2013


We have known for some time that the Smashing Pumpkins would be on Guitar Center Sessions, on May 17th. It is now official.  The season opener airs at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT on DirecTV’s Audience Network (channel 239).

The band reportedly played Quasar, Oceania, Cherub Rock, The Celestial and Bullet with Butterfly Wings.


Two videos were released via YouTube. Bullet with Butterfly Wings and, thanks to USA Today, we have The Celestials (non-public video).

UPDATE: Now Bullet is the private and unavailable footage.

UPDATE 2: Now BWBW is back! And Guitar Center has updated their session page.
