The band sounded great, the light show spot on. Many ushers on hand to assist in seating. The venue is very clean & updated looking. Oh yeah Bones UK 2/3 girl band rocked too;

5.0 star rating Michael Olivas from Dallas, Texas


The set list was very well balanced with new and classic songs. The band was extremely tight, polished and seasoned. The performance was deliberate and a pure joy to experience.

5.0 star rating Eric from Houston, Texas


When James Iha walked on stage with his red silk cowboy shirt, I was in awe of Greatness! Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlain and James Iha all delivered a monumental performance at the Toyota Center. The audience was filled with nice people who shared a sense of respect between themselves and the band and with everyone else in the audience. I felt a sense of real love from the band and from the audience. The sound was perfect. The Smashing Pumpkins showed up and showcased their energy as only they can do. There's a reason they're still one of the biggest bands in Rock n Roll history.

5.0 star rating Smashing Pumpkins fan since Gish from San Diego, California


Saw the guys play at the Ampitheatre in Chula Vista last night. Been feeling kinda down lately with work stress. That's all fixed now! After the first 2 songs, I could have ridden a happiness-high for about a month. However after 20 songs back-to-back with no breaks, now my mind is delirious! I attended alone with my husband because he didn't want to pay the ticket price. I'll be dragging him next tour for sure. Why the heck I waited 33 years to see them live is beyond me. I loved how they did different versions of so many songs too! Nice venue, food and drinks were pricey but expected. I'll definitely come back to this ampitheatre for future concerts.

4.0 star rating Nancy from Chicago,


Been a lif long fan and the band was tight focused and absolutely fantastic! The ease and joy they felt being together again was palatable. Loved it would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the early 90 scene

Smashing Pumpkins, you either hate them or love them. I've always liked Corgan's songwriting and have followed him throughout all the bands incarnations. Last nights performance at MSG was tight and professional. Billy is not the most endearing personality and to his credit, he did not reveal that during the show. What we received was a faithful rendition of many of their classics from the original band that were performed with passion. The stage show was elaborate with Billy doing many costume changes. The music was neither enhanced nor suffered as a result of the staging, with the music and his voice carrying the night to a very satisfying conclusion. Billy and his band mates played for three hours plus and gave the audience our monies worth. To me. a totally enjoyable and satisfying way to spend a Wednesday night in New York!

Everything from Gish, S. Dream, and infinite sadness sounded amazing. And for me that was enough. For a three hour Reunion show, you're going to hear some things you don't care for. For me, anything on adore and machina I find uninteresting, But, some people like it, so they played it. Could maybe have done without stairwsy to heaven and space odity. Pretty unoriginal covers The ego driven Billy induced, Billy love fest is a bit awkward, but he has always been that nerdy big kid that needs your adoration. Yeah, he's serious up there wearing my mothers curtains as a cape . I give a pass to all of thiat nonesense though . Billy shreds those timeless riffs from my youth and his voice sounded great, and the guy seems genuinely happy, while jimmy annd james let Billy do wtf he wants. For much of the night Jimmy was his bad ass self on the drums. I was waiting to hear him Bonham out on stairway. I guess only Bonham does that though. The good heavily outweighed the bad .pumpkins rule
