On Friday, August 24, The Smashing Pumpkins will live-stream the entire Seattle date on their Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour via The Live Nation Concert series on Twitter. The band has been making their way across the country as part of their North American arena tour, produced by Live Nation. This is the first Smashing Pumpkins tour in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha. Longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder, bassist Jack Bates, and keyboardist Katie Cole round out the lineup.
