The Smashing Pumpkins never disappoint and this show was awesome. The main opener Interpol was good as well, the sound was clear for an opener set, they played all their favorites, except The Heinrich Maneuver could be added, right? Pumpkins added an extra guitar player and backing vocalist, so their sound was full studio Pumpkins big sound, through all but the acoustic version of Tonight Tonight, which is becoming a celebration moment, like 'we made it, things are gonna be good now'. And with the Pumpkins, that feeling hits you on many levels in many old and new songs. Billy had fun chatting with James, they had as much fun as ever playing a solid set of all the right songs, from Today, Perfect, Disarm to Ava Adore, Tonight and Bullet, and later finishing with Jellybelly (best), Empires, Hummer, Beguiled, 1979, then James introduced the band members, then put the hammer down, 'This is Cherub Rock', and Zero to finish a great show, no encore needed. Someday maybe Drown, I Am One and Spaceboy might make the cut, but until then, it's still a Pumpkins Vampire world and down in belly of the beast - it rocks.

Smashing Pumpkins: 8/22/23 “It was my second time overall and second time in 315 days seeing Billy Corgan and Smashing Pumpkins LIVE, the former time was in Atlanta, this time Charlotte. Thanks to a LIVE NATION 4 for $80 (all in) my reserved seats at PNC Pavilion were waiting for me and my friend Derrick and family, a 90’s rock wealth of knowledge and top fan of SP. The shows were geared up to be entirely different, in fact they were entirely different tours, the former ‘The Spirits On Fire Tour’ with Jane’s Addiction, this evening’s ’The World Is A Vampire Tour’ with Interpol and Rival Sons. It was the 17th of a 26 show cross country tour (July-September), Charlotte having just missed out on the ‘Stone Temple Pilots’ who had joined the band on the prior leg of the tour. With a catalogue of 12 studio albums and 25 charted singles the band still features Billy Corgan 56 (vocals), James Iha (guitar), and Jimmy Chamberlain (drums) all since 1988. Jeff Shoroeder also on guitar since the 2007 reunion in lieu of D’arcy Wretzky who left the band or was fired in 1999 (take your pick) completed the line-up. Arriving early the temperature was 95° with a heat index of 104° at 5 p.m. for gates open. Taking our seats, the stage was set for Long Beach California’s Rival Sons (blues-rock) scheduled to open at 6:30. We were situated just outside the shade of a pavilion column in direct sunlight. Just prior to the band’s going on for a 8 song set my friend Jay surmised, ‘I’m going to see if I can find someone to talk to you about an upgrade.’ I suggested, ‘See if you can find the usher who complemented Sean on his tattoos, that might be a good start.’ After missing nearly half the set and some finagling the four of us were able to secure second row seats immediately behind a relatively small pit! The seats were elevated just enough to see over the heads of those standing. Rival Sons performed admirably with a decisively Zeppelin-ish sound. I suggest checking out the band if you’ve haven’t heard them and start with their second album ‘Head Down’. With our seats in place the second opener Manhattan formed Interpol (post-punk revival) took the stage at 7:44 p.m. The hour long set was somewhat lackluster to someone unfamiliar with the band, the songs sounding majorly the same. The music was solid but the stage presence (to me) lacked energy and personal engagement with the audience. I think that all along felt that I missed out on Stone Temple Pilots and went into it with an attitude. As the 9 o’clock hour turned, the stage was set for the headliners complete with light and sound checks. A complex system of suspended light rigs ensured an exceptional forthcoming visual display. The SP heart logo on the front of a stack of amplifier heads and a star clustered drum head decorated the stage. At 9:10 p.m. the stage lights dimmed to soft white as the recorded sounds of ‘Atum’ signaled the entrance of the band members. With finger points, rock on gestures, and hand claps from Billy the stage lights turned brilliant green to a driving bass-line kicking off the first notes to 1999’s #4 ‘The Everlasting Gaze’. Continuing hard and heavy ‘Doomsday Clock’ was next in the 21 song / hour and fifty minute set. Unlike past performances, the band drew from the composite of their musical catalogue pulling songs from 8 of their 12 albums, plus two covers. The first of which, the third song in, was an unconventional cover of Talking Heads ‘Once In A Lifetime’ complete with shredding guitar, screeching vocals, and a methodically pounding drumbeat. Corgan even changed up the lyrics to the delight of the audience… ‘And you may find yourself in another part of the world called Charlotte!’ Jimmy addressed the audience in a factual demeanor prior to 1993’s ‘Today’ from ‘Siamese Dream’. ‘Thank you so much Charlotte North Carolina. We’re the Smashing Pumpkins and we’re glad to be here, thank you so much.’ After the #3 ‘Perfect’ a tech brought out Billy’s custom painted Yamaha star and touring member Katie Cole joined him also on acoustic for ‘Disarm’. ‘Ava Adore’ had Corgan, dressed in his all black cassock complete with Masonic patch, face paint with what appeared to be a Z over a U on his forehead working the audience as he swung the mic out with a commanding ‘Sing it’ out to the audience, ‘We must never be apart’. Wiping his head with a black towel more than once, he tossed them out into the crowd, as well as a water bottle at various points. For ‘Tonight Tonight’ the acoustic star guitar was again brought out for a stripped down version with Jimmy that included some verbal interaction between the two. James_‘How you guys doing? It’s so hot and so humid (crowd laughs as though it’s no big deal for us).’ Billy_’James how you feeling tonight?’ James’_Billy ‘I feel great, how you doing?’ Billy_’Normally my friend I’m in an existential crisis. For some reason I took the day off today… We’d like to The Interpols, of course Rival Sons what a great band. We’re so blessed to be on this fantastic tour. Thank you for filling up this building for us tonight.’ James was dressed in a white western styled shirt with black stars and skulls with matching white pants. Billy_’James He may look like a space cowboy now but back in the day this young man and I started this band in my father’s bedroom somewhere around 1987-1988 thirty-six years ago. We can’t thank you enough for thirty-six years of supporting our band!’ 1995’s #2 ‘Bullet With Butterfly Wings’ followed finding it’s perfect place into the set. The second cover of the evening Manfred Mann’s harmonica driven 1964 UK hit ‘Hubble Bubble’ and was scarcely discernible from the original. With an all-three-on-guitar extension of the song Billy was featured on a two minute feedback driven solo transitioning directly into ‘Jelly Belly’. The deeper cut from ‘Mellon Collie’ which was not played on tour since 1997 proved to be a crowd favorite. The interaction between James and Billy continued, Billly_‘What day of the week is it? Everyday is the same for me. Is it Monday? Is it Tuesday? Is it Rock day? James we may not be twenty anymore but it’s happened that we’ve rocked harder than the audience can handle. I think you need to get out the James rock-o-meter, lets detect this level of rock-ness that’s happening right here.’ James panned the audience from right to left and then left to right with his finger. James_‘It’s like a 7.8.’ Billy_’James I think you need to get the rock meter out one more time, I’m not buying it.’ Apparently we hit a ’10’ as the show continued with ‘Empires’ from the new album followed by ‘Hummer’ and ‘Beguiled’. The band ended strong without encore starting with everyone’s favorite the band’s only number one ‘1979’ along with band intros. ‘Cherub Rock’ followed with a blues-styled guitar solo by Billy that transitioned immediately into ‘Zero’ arguably one of Pumpkins best songs —a consummate ending! The Charlotte performance in mine and my comrad’s experience was multi-times better than Atlanta’s show. Long past are the days of Billy’s infinite sadness. He’s battled his demons and taken the upper hand as was evidenced by his demeanor throughout the performance. He proved himself interactive, energetic, grateful, and referred to himself as ‘blessed’. Notwithstanding his lyrics live on to speak to a generation bringing about a sense of comfort through the relatability they offer. Billy’s description of the tour says it all, ‘That’s what [it’s] all about, bringing back that sense of community. If you don’t fit in, you belong here… a true alternative festival, where all the self-proclaimed weirdos and outsiders of the world can get together and have a party’. It sounds as if we’ll fit in perfectly!” Review and photo by DAve (Concerts #809-811)

Third time seeing The Smashing Pumpkins, and definitely the third time was the charm! Updated arrangements of the classics, a touching tribute to Billy's father (who lived out the rest of his life in Tampa), James Iha's deadpan humor about Florida's humidity and gators, and seeing Jack Bates on bass duties! Oh yeah, not to mention that WPC (that's Billy Corgan) owns the NWA. Wrestling between all the acts, as well as onstage during "Beguiled." I thought Motorhead was the loudest show I'd attended. I'm definitely getting older... Great seeing Interpol again! Where's Sam?
