May 11 (UPI) -- Smashing Pumpkins are going on tour in 2022.

The alternative rock band will perform on a new North American tour, Spirits on Fire, in the fall.


Jane's Addiction will join the tour as a special guest.

Spirits on Fire will kick off Oct. 2 in Dallas, Texas, and come to a close Nov. 19 in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. local time.

Smashing Pumpkins released its 11th studio album, Cyr, in November 2020. The album features the singles "Cyr"/"The Colour of Love," "Confessions of a Dopamine Addict"/"Wrath," "Anno Satana"/"Birch Grove" and other songs.


Jane's Addiction's most recent album, The Great Escape Artist, was released in 2011.

Later Wednesday, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and a pair of his current bandmates -- founding drummer Jimmy Chamberlain and guitarist Jeff Schroeder -- had their handprints cemented in a ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

The 55-year-old Corgan was joined by his children at the special event. Guitarist James Iha, who played on the band's early classics and later returned to the group, didn't join them for the ceremony.

Perry Farrell, the frontman of Jane's Addiction, also attended the celebration.

Smashing Pumpkins is set to make an appearance Thursday on The Late Late Show With James Corden, and the group -- in addition to its tour -- has announced plans to release new music later this year.
