YES! You read the title right.. Smashing Pumpkins are going to smash Manila with their music LIVE at Araneta!!
Some must be wonderin why on Earth I have to include them on my blog, well people change you know. hahaha! honestly, I don't know any of their songs before like I am not interested with any of those but because my boyfriend loves to listen to their music I had to listen to them as well. (para lang di ako maOP).
For now, we have Billy Corgan, that’s for sure, as the last man standing in the pit of rats in a cage while the other three are worthy of their contribution being in the game since 2009.For someone stuck in the 90′s, it is a dead man’s wish to see the original line-up on the stage again ( like my boyfriend). I certainly do not know how to feel on this but still seeing the name next to Live in Manila is somehow a good thing.
So it happens, Billy Corgan Jeff Schroeder, Mike Byrnen and Nicole Fiorentino, the new Smashing Pumpkins are coming to Philippine shores. We can expect the Rotten Apples: Greatest Hits be played or get Zeitgeist onward. For what it’s worth, they are coming in the wake of promoting the latest record Oceania. Dubbed as Smashing Pumpkins Oceania Global Tour, the concert will be on August 7, 2012 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
So, we both are planning to watch the concert! and I am so excited! Excited because I will be able to watch them live nad offcourse another time of us together out of town yehey!!
