GRAMMY® Award-winning, acclaimed alternative rock pioneers The Smashing Pumpkins have announced the Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, their first tour in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha. Produced by Live Nation, the 36-city tour will kick off in Glendale, AZ on July 12, 2018 and visit North American arenas throughout the summer. Tickets for the Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour will go on sale to the general public starting Friday, February 23 at 10:00am local time and be available at www.smashingpumpkins.com, LiveNation.com, and via the Live Nation App.
“Some 30 years ago, as The Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha and I began a musical journey in the cramped rear bedroom of my Father’s house. And so it’s magic to me that we’re able to coalesce once more around the incredible Jimmy Chamberlin, to celebrate those songs we’ve made together,” shared Corgan.
The band broke news of the tour this morning with a dramatic video featuring original Siamese Dream album cover stars Ali Laenger and LySandra Roberts. Watch the clip HERE.
The monumental Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation, will highlight music from the group’s inception through 2000, and will exclusively feature material from their groundbreaking debut Gish through Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina. Longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder will also take part, as the band moves to a three guitar lineup to better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums.
“This show and staging will be unlike any we’ve ever done, and will feature a set unlike any we’ve ever played. For if this is a chance at a new beginning, we plan on ushering it in with a real bang,” added Corgan.
Formed in Chicago, IL in 1988, The Smashing Pumpkins released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993’s 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995’s 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. With nine studio albums and over 30 million albums sold to date, the GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains an influential force in alternative rock.
This is what a movement looks like. Coming together to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.

Each ticket purchased online for any of the U.S. dates on The Thrill Of It All tour will include a copy of Smith’s new album. Visit http://samsmithworld.com for additional details.
Smith will be the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” on October 7. He recently gave fans a taste of his new album during a series of intimate shows in London, New York, Los Angeles and Berlin. The Thrill Of It All finds Smith once again working alongside close friend and long-time collaborator Jimmy Napes plus Timbaland, Malay, Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd and Stargate. He also collaborates with the unsigned artist YEBBA on the song “No Peace.”
“Too Good At Goodbyes,” the album’s first single, is a global smash, hitting No. 1 on the U.K. and Global Spotify Charts and topping the U.K. and U.S. iTunes charts. It has captured the top spot on the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart Top 100 for three consecutive weeks, marking Smith’s sixth No. 1 single there. In the U.S., “Too Good At Goodbyes,” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart. Worldwide Spotify streams of the single already exceed 100 million. Views of the official video, which can be seen HERE, are nearing 60 million.
Rolling Stone hailed “Too Good At Goodbyes” as “poignant” and TIME observed, “Cue the swelling violins, gospel chorus and Smith’s inevitable return to dominance.” Vulture said, “Crooning with his trademark soul, Smith packs an emotional punch with his lyrics…It’s been a long wait…but if the rest of his upcoming album is as moving as this new song, it has certainly been worth it.”
Released in June 2014, Smith’s In The Lonely Hour was the biggest selling U.K. male debut in the SoundScan era and went on to sell 13 million adjusted albums worldwide. In February 2015, Smith set a GRAMMY® record, winning a total of four awards – the most ever received by a U.K. artist following the release of a debut album. He was named Best New Artist, In The Lonely Hour took Best Pop Vocal Album honors and his single “Stay With Me” won awards for both Record and Song of the Year. Smith has also earned an Oscar, a Golden Globe, three Billboard Music Awards and three BRIT Awards, among others.
Since releasing their self-titled debut in 1995, the Foo Fighters have been at the forefront of guitar-heavy rock. The origin of the band can be traced back to David Grohl’s days as a drummer for Nirvana when he would write solo material when not playing with the legendary group. While Grohl handled all of the instrumentation for the Foo Fighters’ first album, band members have since joined Grohl in the studio and on tour. In 1997, the band released The Colour and the Shape, followed by 1999’s There Is Nothing Left to Lose and One by One in 2002. In Your Honor, a 2-CD album, was released in 2005 and revealed the band’s impressive scope, ranging from quiet, acoustic songs to pounding, all-out rock. Hit songs from the Foo Fighters include “This is a Call,” “Big Me,” “Learn to Fly,” “All My Life,” and “Best of You.”
Foo Fighters’ newest LP, Concrete and Gold was released on September 15, 2017. The eponymous tour will take the band to Portland’s Moda Center on September 10, 2018.

There’s a reason why South London musicians Florence Welch and Isabella “The Machine” Summers, a.k.a. Florence and the Machine, have filled stadiums, amphitheaters, and concert halls worldwide to max capacity. Ask any fan and they’ll tell you that their lush, genre-defying indie art rock sounds even better live than on their multi award-winning studio albums. Indeed, their reputation for putting on phenomenal shows has fans eagerly anticipating tour dates and pouncing on tickets as soon as they’re available. Why such devotion? Florence’s energetic, fiery stage presence matches her signature crimson tresses, adding that much more drama to such orchestral gems as “Cosmic Love,” “Dog Days Are Over,” “No Light, No Light,” “Rabbit Heart (Raise it Up)”—just to name a few. What’s more, their artful, literary lyrics, soaring vocals, and theatrical concerts have caused critics to draw comparisons to Kate Bush and Siouxsie and the Banshees. However, despite their old school appeal, their style is fresh enough to attract fans of Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Beyoncé (who also counts herself as a hug Florence fan).

As a member of the Fugees and a decorated solo artist, the legendary Ms. Lauryn Hill broke new ground for female artists in hip hop, becoming one of the most dominant musical figures of the ’90s and the first hip-hop artist to take home a Grammy for Album of the Year. With new material and a critically-acclaimed tour in 2013, Hill proved she hasn’t lost her edge – or her voice – taking the stage with a full backing band and breathing new life into her catalog of hits with updated arrangements, extensive improvisation, and dramatic readings of her socially conscious verses.
Portland’s biggest food festival’s main event takes place on the Rose Quarter Commons, and this year they’re throwing a throwback party.
It’s no secret, we’re all obsessed (again) with the 80s and 90s. The permed hair, leg warmers and seven-layer dip are back, and we’ve enlisted the help of 20 of the hottest chefs from Portland and across America to jog your memory with their own unexpected takes on what we ate back then. Set to a cassette-worthy mix of hair bands, grunge and classic hip-hop, you’ll be channeling your inner Michael or Britney in no time. To make things even more interesting, we’ve turned this into a team competition where half the chefs will represent the 80s and the other half the 90s in a throwback cook-off that’s guaranteed to knock your parachute pants off. Maybe your shoulder pads, too.
