The Smashing Pumpkins performed at the Brady Theater in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Sunday night as part of their 30th Anniversary Shows tour that coincides with the release of their new album Shiny and Oh So Bright Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. The show took place on the 18-year anniversary of The Smashing Pumpkins’ initial final show on December 2, 2000 in Chicago at the Metro. After that show, James Iha did not play with The Smashing Pumpkins for 16 years.
The Tulsa show was celebratory, with 90’s pop icons Hanson joining the Pumpkins onstage for a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide”. James Iha is friends with Taylor Hanson, as they used to play together in the supergroup Tinted Windows with Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger, and Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos. They released one album in April 2009.
Taylor Meade from the Chainsaw Kittens was a guest on a cover of David Bowie’s “Suffragette City”.
