SMASHING PUMPKINS have announced a North American arena tour with special guests JANE'S ADDICTION. Produced by Live Nation, the 32-date "Spirits On Fire" trek will commence on October 2 in Dallas, Texas and will conclude on November 19 in Los Angeles, California at the Hollywood Bowl. Both bands revealed the exciting news live this morning exclusively on SiriusXM's "The Howard Stern Show". Pre-sales begin on Thursday, May 12 from 10 a.m. local. General on-sale begins Friday, May 13 at 10 a.m. local.

Tomorrow night, in support of SMASHING PUMPKINS tour announcement, the Grammy Award-winning, critically acclaimed band will be performing and talking on CBS's "The Late Late Show with James Corden".

Later today, SMASHING PUMPKINS will appear at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood for a commemorative ceremony in celebration of their tour announcement. Each band-member will add their handprints in cement, joining a long list of global treasures before them.

When SMASHING PUMPKINS first emerged out of Chicago in 1988, the world had never heard a band quite like them. They spun together rock, pop, shoe-gaze, metal, goth, psychedelia, and electronic into a kaleidoscope of saccharine melodies, fuzzy distortion, bombastic orchestration, incendiary fretwork, eloquent songcraft, and unshakable hooks. Upon their formation, their sound was different, iconoclastic, and wholly new — and it still is today. As a result, they've sold over 30 million albums worldwide and collected two Grammy Awards, two MTV VMAs and an American Music Award. Their catalog is highlighted by the platinum "Gish" (1991),the quadruple-platinum "Siamese Dream" (1993),diamond-certified "Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness" (1995),platinum "Adore" (1998) and gold "Machina/The Machines Of God" (2000). In 2018, they embarked on one of their most successful tours ever, the "Shiny And Oh So Bright" tour, followed by "Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun." Meanwhile, 2020 saw the release of the band's eleventh full-length and latest double album, "Cyr". As prolific as ever, SMASHING PUMPKINS confirmed they will release more music in 2022 as they resume touring.
