The Smashing Pumpkins announce Rock Invasion 2 US tour

The Smashing Pumpkins are invading your city — again.

Billy Corgan and company have announced the Rock Invasion 2 U.S. tour, the sequel to the band’s 1993-1994 Rock Invasion tour.

The spring outing, which will focus mostly on the Midwest and Southeast, kicks off April 23 in Louisville, Kentucky, and will come to a close May 8 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

“It’s been a good while since we’ve played a straight up, bare knuckle rock and roll show; one that avoids little in the way of raw power,” Corgan says in a statement. “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.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 6 at 10 a.m. local time. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit
