THE SMASHING PUMPKINS will be the musical guests on the December 11 episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” The band will perform several songs on the show’s outdoor stage in front of a standing-room-only crowd.
“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” airs every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. and features a diverse lineup of guests that include celebrities, athletes, musical acts, comedians and human interest subjects, along with comedy bits and a house band.
THE SMASHING PUMPKINS‘ new album, “Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.”, was released last month. The disc was produced by multi-Grammy winner Rick Rubin and is the first SMASHING PUMPKINS LP in over 18 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlain, with longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
Last week, the band launch its special 30th-anniversary live shows with a performance at The Sylvee in Madison, Wisconsin. On December 8, they’ll headline the first night of KROQ‘s Almost Acoustic Christmas in Los Angeles, California.
The group recently wrapped the “Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour”, which sold over 300,000 tickets across North America and saw them playing sold-out arena shows at venues including The Forum, United Center and Madison Square Garden. Produced by Live Nation, the tour was the band’s first in nearly two decades to feature Corgan, Chamberlin and Iha, alongside Schroeder, bassist Jack Bates and keyboardist Katie Cole. Critics were quick to praise the tour’s opening dates as “a massive gift to their fans” (Uproxx), “a welcome reminder of why those early albums resonated in the first place” (SPIN), and “an unforgettably rewarding and often spectacular odyssey” (Forbes).
Formed in 1988 in Chicago, Illinois, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS released their heralded debut album, “Gish”, in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993’s four-times-platinum “Siamese Dream” and 1995’s ten-times-platinum “Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness”. With over 30 million albums sold to date, the Grammy-, MTV VMA– and American Music Award-winning band remains an influential force in alternative rock.
