Smashing Pumpkins are just a few days into their 2016 North American tour, but their setlist is noteworthy for featuring a few famous covers.
The Pumpkins are calling this an “acoustic-electro” tour and stripped down renditions from their own catalog and artists’ they admire affirm that goal. As an encore, the band played “Angie” by The Rolling Stones. Before the show, opening act Liz Phair tweeted that the soundcheck gave her “chills.”
