Corgan took to Instagram to share an epic 33-song long setlist that he says are the band’s “PROPOSED songs” for the tour.
The songs draw exclusively from their first five albums, Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina/The Machines of God, with a few covers and B-sides thrown in to.
They’re looking at playing rarer cuts like ‘Blew Away’ and ‘Try, Try, Try’ plus covers of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, Led Zeppelin’s ‘Stairway To Heaven’ and David Bowie’s and ‘Space Oddity’ and ‘Never Let Me Down’.
He has encouraged fans to send their song requests to the band members, as this is not the final list of songs.
The reunion tour is set to kick off in July with Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin and Jeff Schroeder. There has been plenty of drama surrounding the announcement with former bassist D’arcy Wretzky claiming that she was asked to join the band and then uninvited. Corgan denied it and last week made it very clear that he doesn’t want to talk about it anymore.
Check out the setlist below.
The other day, I shared a set of ours from 1995. Which surprisingly engendered a lot of interest, and it got me thinking why not share our pool of PROPOSED songs (meaning the list we'll use to build The Shiny and Oh So Bright set, so these aren't in any particular order). And since we are a bit aways from going into rehearsals, and I'm sure we've missed a favorite or two, tag me @williampcorgan @jamesihaofficial @chamberdrums and @jjjschroeder as well as @smashingpumpkins or #smashingpumpkins and most importantly #SP2018 with a screen cap of what you'd like to hear. But remember, the goal is to build an epic set! So choose wisely
