Smashing Pumpkins Fans Get Refunds After Terrible News


The Smashing Pumpkins and The Strokes were set to headline the Doctor Music Festival next month, but sadly it has been canceled. The Smashing Pumpkins have retweeted a message announcing that fans can get refunds.

The amount of the credits purchased will be returned in full.
Doctor Music Festival deeply regrets having to announce that it has been forced to cancel this year’s edition
Press Release.”

It’s disappointing news, as The Smashing Pumpkins’ European tour has been widely acclaimed, featuring rarities like “The Aeroplane Flies High” and “Superchrist” on the setlist.

Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin wrote before the band kicked off their current run of shows, “Heading to Germany to see some friends and play some music. I’m really looking forward to these next couple of months and beyond.

Yesterday I watched a piece with #jameshetfield where he was talking about Metallica’s early days, how absolutely thrilled he was to start playing music for a living and how he still considers it the coolest thing in the world. I couldn’t agree more so thanks to everyone for the support and for the incredible opportunity. See ya soon! #stayhumble.”

The Smashing Pumpkins are currently working on a new studio album and a Christmas album. Billy Corgan is soon set to kick off a short solo European tour with Katie Cole.
