Smashing Pumpkins announce club tour, headed to Virginia, Charlotte

Billy Corgan's latest incarnation of the Smashing Pumpkins, now sans Jimmy Chamberlain leaving Corgan as the only original member, has announced a new summer club tour. Unfortunately, since the Triangle doesn't have a 1,000 capacity or greater club, the tour won't stop here, but will visit our neighbors in Virginia twice as well as Charlotte.

The Smashing Pumpkins will play The National in Richmond, VA on Tuesday, July 13, The Norva in Norfolk, VA on Thursday, July 15 and the Fillmore in Charlotte on Friday, July 16.

Tickets for the Norfolk show go on sale Saturday, June 12 at 10 a.m. for $45 hereWe'll keep you updated on the other dates once details are available. The Richmond show goes on sale at the same time here, also for $45. The Charlotte show goes on sale Friday, June 18 at 10 a.m. here.
