Smashing Pumpkins' UK Dates

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Smashing Pumpkins have announced they will return to the U.K. and Europe for a major arena headlining tour launching January 27 at Arena in Belgrade, Serbia and encompassing shows in Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, Ireland, Scotland, England, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, where the trek wraps March 3 in Helsinki.

This will mark the band’s third round of overseas dates in connection with their critically acclaimed Zeitgeist album (Martha’s Music/Reprise), which entered the album charts in July in the Top Five in the U.S. (#2), Canada (#1), New Zealand (#1), the U.K. (#4), Italy (#5) and Switzerland (#5), with more Top Ten debuts in Germany (#7), Holland (#7) and Australia (#8). In the U.S and Canada, a special configuration of Zeitgeist—awarded a four-star rating by Rolling Stone—is now available at Best Buy stores with three bonus tracks from the album’s original sessions (“Death From Above,” “Ma Belle,” “Stellar”) and a bonus DVD with a 20-minute documentary, Inside the Zeitgeist, as well as the music videos for "Tarantula" and "That's the Way (My Love Is).”

The Smashing Pumpkins’ extensive 2007 tour schedule commenced in Europe with an intimate sold-out show at the historic, elegantly appointed Grand Rex in Paris (May 22) and wrapped with another sold-out small venue gig at Sheperds Bush Empire in London (June 19). In between those shows, the band headlined the major summer European festivals. Next, they returned to the U.S. for a special performance at Live Earth on July 7 at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford NJ; residencies at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC (nine shows between 6/23-7/5) and the historic Fillmore (11 shows between 7/15-8/1) in San Francisco, CA; as well as headlining slots at the two Virgin Festivals in North America: August 5 at Pimlico Park in Washington, D.C. and September 8 at Toronto Island Park in Canada.
