The Smashing Pumpkins have announced two sets of residency gigs: nine shows at the Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C., (June 23, 24, 26, 27, 29, 30 and July 2, 3, and 5) plus eight shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco (July 22, 24, 25, 27, 28, 30 and 31 and August 1).
The band will vary set lists from night to night, performing songs from the upcoming album Zeitgeist, Pumpkins classics, plus unreleased material and tunes written the day of the show.
The concerts are designed to give fans a glimpse into the Pumpkins' creative process.
San Francisco dates mark the first time the band has played The Fillmore since April 1994.
The Asheville shows mark the first time the Pumpkins will have played a residency since their four gigs at the Double Door in Chicago in 1994, before the release of Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness.
Fans attending the Fillmore and Orange Peel shows are invited to capture the concerts with audio and video recorders.
