Two-time GRAMMY® Award winning, acclaimed singer-songwriter and The Smashing Pumpkins frontman, Billy Corgan announced today a solo acoustic U.S. tour that kicks off on November 3rd in Los Angeles, and wraps up on November 20th in New York. These intimate performances will see Corgan perform songs from The Smashing Pumpkins, Zwan, WPC, and more. A complete list of tour dates and ticket information can be found HERE. Tickets for the tour are on sale Friday at 10AM.
Billy released his second solo album, Ogilala on October 13, 2017. The album, produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at Shangri La studios in Malibu, CA, presents Corgan’s distinctive vocals and melodies across a sparse, but rich palette of acoustic guitar, piano, and strings.
“Unfussy and intimate and, more importantly, Corgan owns the performance with his inimitable voice that few in the ’90s would have figured for a romantic lead.” – NPR
