Smashing Pumpkins in HK Smashing Pumpkins Live in AsiaWorld Expo

[08/07/13] 

The Smashing Pumpkins… they’re, well, smashing, and they’ll be playing Hong Kong on August 13. It’s a chance to bang your head or wallow in the melancholy of their music, which has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. Think about that, 30 million albums. At approximately US$10 each, that’s a hell of a lot of money. And drugs. And gambling. And partying. Just imagine what they got up to – and what they spent. Maybe that’s why they’re touring again...

The alternate rock outfit unveiled their first album Gish in 1991, while their second, Siamese Dream, was released in 1993 and went four times platinum. Up next, in 1995, was their the nine-time platinum Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness, followed in 1998 by the platinum album Adore. Try on their big ones for size: Today, Cherub Rock and 1979. Time to dust off that leather jacket and bank on high quality air-con.

The band’s line-up has changed radically since the early days - only lead singer/guitarist Billy Corgan remains - but the unique timbre of his voice is the distinctive sound of the group so you’ll still get that Smashing Pumpkins feeling. The re-modelled band has been well reviewed so you're in for a treat at the AsiaWorld Expo. Tickets are priced at HK$580/780. Should be enough to keep them going for another few years.

Smash it up.
