The Smashing Pumpkins are going on tour with Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots, more
The Smashing Pumpkins are hitting the road. The alternative-rock icons aren’t just going on any tour, though — they’re launching “a true alternative festival” of a live show.
Today, the Smashing Pumpkins announced a large slate of upcoming live dates for the World is a Vampire Tour. The ’90s favorites are bringing a handful of guests on tour, including Interpol, Stone Temple Pilots, and Rival Sons, as well as wrestlers in the National Wrestling Alliance, who are set to compete a handful of dates. The tour is set to kick off in Las Vegas, Nevada in late July and run throughout August in much of North America.

Of the tour, frontman Billy Corgan said in a press release, “I grew up in a world where I needed to know bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees and the Cure existed, it meant there was a place for people like me to hang out and belong. That’s what the World Is A Vampire is about. Bringing back that sense of community. If you don’t fit in, you belong here. It’s about having a shared experience and respecting others, but ultimately having fun. A true alternative festival, where all the self-proclaimed weirdos and outsiders of the world can get together and have a party.”
The tour comes shortly after the release of the third and final installment of their 12th studio album ATUM, which is due out May 5. Aside from a handful of festival performances, the World is a Vampire Tour marks the band’s latest tour since 2018 and 2019. So, in addition to the classics, you can likely expect them to play tracks off both ATUM and their 2020 album Cyr, which they have yet to take on the road.
The pre-sale for the Smashing Pumpkins’ 2023 tour begins today, Mar. 28 at 12pm local time and lasts until Thursday, Mar. 30 at 10pm local time. The general on-sale will then kick off Friday, Mar. 31 at 10am local time. You can find more details here and see the full list of dates below.
