Throwback Concert: The Smashing Pumpkins at Mohegan Sun Arena 2018

By Drew Carrano

In 2018 we saw the reunion of one of the biggest alternative rock bands of the 90s: The Smashing Pumpkins. Three-fourths of the Pumpkins’ founding lineup – singer Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin reunited for their first tour together in nearly 20 years.

Today we look back at the tour and their show at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Today’s Throwback Concert:

The Smashing Pumpkins

Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour

Special Guest: Metric

Mohegan Sun Arena – Uncasville


About The Tour: The Smashing Pumpkins “Shiny And Oh So Bright” 36-city North American tour kicked off in Glendale, Arizona on July 12, 2018. The summer tour would visit arenas across the United States, plus Montreal and Toronto.

The tour happened to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the band’s formation. To celebrate the milestone, The Pumpkins’ setlist featured mostly songs from the band’s inception through 2000, arguably their most popular era.  The set at Mohegan Sun Arena included songs mainly from first five albums: Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina/The Machines of God. For longtime Pumpkins’ fans it felt like 2000 all over again.
