Two days after Hurricane Sandy did a pre-Halloween number on the Eastern Seaboard, tours are still being effected. The latest rescheduling involves the final four dates of Smashing Pumpkins’ U.S. leg behind Oceania. Billy Corgan and crew were scheduled for Brooklyn’s Barclays Arena tonight (10/31), but as NYC continues to struggle through the devastation and drowned subways, that show has been postponed until an undetermined date. The same goes for their November 4th show in Hartford, CT, while gigs in Camden, NJ and Fairfax, VA have been rescheduled for December 8th and 9th, respectively.
While you wait for the new dates, why don’t you check out our review of the Pumpkins’ recent stop in Rosemont, IL. We’ll keep you posted on any further Sandy-related reschedulings, and meanwhile our thoughts and hearts go out to those dealing with the aftermath.
