Smashing Pumpkins @ Scotiabank Saddledome – September 8th 2018

Calgary was one of a very few North American tour stops for Smashing Pumpkins this past Saturday night. This iconic alt-rock band hails originally from Chicago. The Pumpkins were founded in 1988 by frontman Billy Corgan,(lead vocals, guitar), D’arcy Wretzky, (bass guitar), James Iha, (guitar), and Jimmy Chamberlin, (drums). Over the years, the band has undergone a variety of line up changes. The Pumpkin’s current members mark the first time in nearly 20 years to feature Corgan, Chamberlin, Iha and guitarist, Jeff Schroeder sharing the same stage. Smashing Pumpkins wasted no time getting the night going. They skipped an opening act and rolled right into their amazing music catalogue of classics along with some fantastic cover songs. The show started off with giant LED screens featuring Smashing Pumpkins art and photos. The band was solid and Billy’s voice was great for the almost three-hour show. It’s hard to believe that it’s been two decades since this line up toured.

It was a great night for Alternative Rock!
