THE SMASHING PUMPKINS CANCELS

SEPTEMBER 7TH 2018

FORD ARENA

HI LIVE EVENT FAN,

UNFORTUNATELY, YOUR UPCOMING EVENT WAS CANCELED.

Fans on The Smashing Pumpkins Reddit were not pleased with this announcement. Others noted the date wasn’t listed on tour t-shirts.

I heard ticket sales are not great. I imagine that’s the cause. You’d better look for the next closest and cross your fingers.

I know, what the heck?! Was their tour cancelled or just this date?

I didn’t see anything else online about it yet. I’m guessing they probably thought ticket sales were bad. Was pretty excited to see Metric as well….oh well, life in Idaho.

Im so devastated right now. They better have a good reason. They’re my favorite band and the first concert I’ve paid for with my own money.

The Smashing Pumpkins Shiny and Oh So Bright tour has been very well received by fans and critics, but the only shows reported to have sold out are upcoming performances in Chicago and Los Angeles. Lower level and floors have been packed at early shows, but many upper level ticket holders have reported that they have been offered ticket upgrades. The attendance is pretty good with the reunion featuring three out of four original members.
