Billy Corgan Tells Moron Stage Crasher “Get The Fuck Off My Stage Before I Punch You In The Fucking Face”

The Smashing Pumpkins have been on tour lately, with original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin back in the fold and early-’90s Chicago contemporary Liz Phair opening, and it’s been surprisingly eventful! Original guitarist James Iha rejoined the band a couple of times! There were Prince tributes and random covers and a quick interlude where Billy Corgan ranted about social justice warriors to Alex Jones! And last week, Corgan was ready to throw down, as Alternative Nation reports. Despite his imposing height and his permanently shaven head, Corgan is nobody’s idea of a rock tough guy. But here, Corgan channeled his inner Henry Rollins for a few seconds. Performing at the Orpheum in Memphis, the band was right in the middle of its final song, a version of the Rolling Stones’ “Angie,” when some doof from the audience got up to stand next to Corgan and sort of nod along. Corgan hit him with this: “Get the fuck off my stage before I punch you in the fucking face.” The stage crasher meekly complied. Watch fan-made video below.

At Corgan’s other job, they call that “cutting a promo.”
