Those of you that may have seen either the press release or any info out there about the tour may find yourself scratching your head a bit about the shows format. We tried to keep it simple but as is our custom, its just not always that simple!! SO I thought I would post up some additional info to make sure that there was absolute clarity about what shows would be going on where-when.

First off, the 2 night format is about playing the most songs over 2 nights that would hopefully create very distinct shows from one another. No song will be repeated means exactly as it sounds, if you go to show #1 of a 2 night stand (black sunshine!), you wouldn’t hear anything on night # 2 (white crosses) that you heard song-wise on the first night. The cities where we are playing only 1 show will feature an amalgamated show that will most likely have some songs we won’t be playing in the 2 night format shows, but take from both the sunshine and the crosses show. Get it? I hope so…cause its a lot for us to digest as well.

Below is a list of shows, where I’ll highlight just for overkill what show will be taking place:

Sunshine, Cross, or SS (special show for the one offs)

Smashing Pumpkins to play shows titled “Black Sunshine,” & “White Crosses.” & perform on the Jimmy Kimmel Live

Ξ September 23rd, 2008 by MonteLDS | → 0 Comments | ∇ Billy Corgan, Concerts, Jimmy Chamberlin, Music News, Smashing Pumpkins |

According to Blabbermouth.net

“..The PUMPKINS are coming prepared with completely different set lists in each of the multi-night engagements with no songs being repeated over the course of the two night run. Night #1 is being called “Black Sunshine,” while night #2 will be dubbed “White Crosses.” A special two-night ticket bundle will be available for all multi-night engagements.

In Chicago — where singer/guitarist Billy Corgan and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin continue to be based — the PUMPKINS will play four shows at two different venues. In cities where the band is set to play one night, they plan to deliver a unique one-off set….

…The PUMPKINS have also confirmed a national television appearance for Friday, October 24 when they’ll perform “G.L.O.W.” on the outdoor stage at ABC-TV’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” ”

Smashing Pumpkins - If All Goes WrongThe Smashing Pumpkins to Release Double DVD Set – ‘If All Goes Wrong’

Features Full Concert in High Definition and Revealing Documentary

Coming Home Media will release If All Goes Wrong, a double DVD commemorative package celebrating the recent reunion and extraordinary 20-year career of The Smashing Pumpkins, one of rock’s defining and most acclaimed bands, on Nov. 11th.

Directed and produced by Jack Gulick (Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Steve Miller Band, Godsmack) and Daniel E Catullo III (Steve Miller Band, Godsmack, Rush, Dave Matthews Band), the two DVD set contains the 105-minute documentary, also titled If All Goes Wrong, plus The Fillmore Residency, a full concert filmed in late July and early August of 2007 over five of the 11 sold-out nights at the famed Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA.

The concert disc was captured in 5.1 Surround Sound and state-of-the-art high definition from 12 cameras and features seven all new tracks not available anywhere else, along with new versions of fan favorites and a selection of Pumpkins rarities.

From the opening note to the final chord, the documentary If All Goes Wrong showcases a band returning with an “enveloping epic force” (Los Angeles Times) as it traces The Smashing Pumpkins during their 19-show residency, which began with eight shows at Asheville, NC’s Orange Peel in late June and continued through 11 sold-out nights at San Francisco’s famed Fillmore Auditorium. Interviews with band members, fans, journalists and fellow musicians reveal the fears, excitement, determination, exhaustion and tension inherent in main singer-songwriter and lead guitarist Billy Corgan and his newly revitalized musical unit.

“We went into the residencies hopeful to play some new music, with the idea I would write during the day and we could maybe even play new songs that same night,” Corgan comments. “What I didn’t anticipate is how much the process would inspire me, positively and negatively, to report what I was seeing and feeling from the shows. The documentary shows that process in an interesting way that reveals the link between the band and our audience.”

The documentary also includes Voices Of The Ghost Children, a featurette about the band’s fans, and an interview with The Who’s legendary guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend as bonus material.

Fillmore ResidencyThe concert portion of the If All Goes Wrong, entitled The Fillmore Residency, runs 115 minutes and includes seven of the almost 20 all-new compositions the band composed and performed exclusively during the residencies that are available exclusively on this release. With 15 songs in all, the concert – captured in 5.1 Surround Sound and state-of-the-art high definition from 12 cameras – showcases the band as they explore the freedom afforded to them in a live setting, including the 30+ minute opus “Gossamer”. Along with the new tracks, the concert also includes alternate versions of fan favorites and a selection of Pumpkins rarities. The Fillmore Residency also includes five songs recorded live from the floor of The Fillmore that gives fans an intimate glimpse of the band as a performing entity.
