The Smashing Pumpkins announce North American spring tour

March 2 (UPI) -- The Smashing Pumpkins announced on Monday a new North American Spring tour.

The Rock Invasion 2 tour is a sequel to The Smashing Pumpkins' 1993 tour of the same name.


The band will be hitting intimate venues starting April 23 in Louisville, Ky., at The Louisville Palace.

Tickets go on sale for the general public starting Friday at 10 a.m. local time through Live Nation.

The Smashing Pumpkins, which includes Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, James Iha and Jeff Schroeder along with bassist Jack Bates, will play a heavier rock set of songs that span their entire catalog.

"It's been a good while since we've played a straight up, bare knuckles rock and roll show; one that avoids little in the way of raw power. So note: this tour won't be for those faint of heart, and will certainly echo the dynamic modes in which we built our live reputation," Corgan said in a statement.
