Two of the best interviews in rock are heading out on tour together. Smashing Pumpkins and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have announced a few weeks of summer dates, meaning Gallagher and Billy Corgan — who, besides their shared loquacious tendencies, have also penned more than a few classics between them — will share the stage in 16 North American cities this August.
The tour begins 8/8 in Camden, NJ and wraps up 8/31 in Mountain View, CA. AFI, whose Davey Havok recently guested at some Smashing Pumpkins shows, has been tapped to open the run. All shows except the Los Angeles engagement go on sale this Friday, 3/8.
Check out the dates below, and get tickets here. And if you’re wondering what I mean about these guys giving good quotes, check out our Corgan interviews from 2012 and 2014 and our chats with Gallagher from 2015 and 2017.
