GRAMMY® Award-winning, acclaimed alternative rock pioneers, The Smashing Pumpkins today announced additional dates on their upcoming Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour. The band will perform in London, Ontario on August 9th, Calgary, Alberta on September 8, and Edmonton, Alberta on September 9. Tickets for the shows will go on sale to the general public starting this Monday, May 14th at 10:00am local time and be available at,, and via the Live Nation App.

The Smashing Pumpkins today also announced indie rock band Metric will support them on the tour. A complete list of upcoming Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour dates can be found below. Tickets for the tour's previously announced dates are on sale now.

Produced by Live Nation, the Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour is The Smashing Pumpkins' first tour  in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin, and James Iha. Produced by Live Nation, the 39-city tour will kick off in Glendale, AZ on July 12, 2018 and visit North American arenas throughout the summer.

The monumental tour, which coincides with the 30th anniversary of the band's formation, will highlight music from the group's inception through 2000, and will exclusively feature material from their groundbreaking debut Gish through Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Adore, and Machina. Longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder will also take part, as the band moves to a three guitar lineup to better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums.

Formed in Chicago, IL in 1988, The Smashing Pumpkins released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993's 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995's 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. With nine studio albums and over 30 million albums sold to date, the GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains an influential force in alternative rock.

The Smashing Pumpkins are represented by Velvet Hammer Music and Management Group.

In 2009, Metric self-released their 4th studio album Fantasies, which sold over 500,000 albums and millions of singles worldwide. Fantasies was followed by the band's 5th studio album Synthetica (2012), and more recently Pagans in Vegas (2015). The band has completed their next album, which is expected out in 2018. Metric became the first band in history to have a Top 20 hit at US commercial radio without the backing of a label. Metric also collaborated with legendary composer Howard Shore on writing the official theme song and score music for the Twilight saga's blockbuster film Eclipse, which was nominated for both Grammy and Oscar awards.
