Last night GRAMMY-winning, alternative rock pioneers, The Smashing Pumpkins performed at an intimate 1979 House Party in Studio City, CA for fans flown in from around the country. Inspired by their iconic “1979” music video the event took place at a secret residential location ahead of their upcoming Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, kicking off July 12th.  The band played hits including “Soma,” “Zero,” “Today,” “Siva,” and more, before closing with a “1979” encore.

The Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour is The Smashing Pumpkins’ first tour in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha. The 39-city outing starts in Glendale, AZ on July 12 and crosses North American arenas throughout the summer. Tickets are available at LiveNation.com and SmashingPumpkins.com.

The monumental tour, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation, will highlight music from the group’s inception through 2000, and will exclusively feature material from their groundbreaking debut Gish through Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore,and Machina. Longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder will also take part, as the band moves to a three guitar lineup to better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums.
