The Smashing Pumpkins perform on Friday, Aug. 17 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

For longtime fans of the Smashing Pumpkins, Friday night’s show at Bankers Life Fieldhouse was somewhat of a dream come true.

It’s been years since frontman Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlain were together blowing roofs off of arenas. The Smashing Pumpkins’ story is one that’s full of turmoil, as Iha and Chamberlain have both come and gone over the years.

Friday night’s show was certainly not the ideal reunion either, as founding bassist D’arcy Wretzky (who was supposedly asked multiple times to return to the Pumpkins) was not in attendance, instead being replaced by bassist Jack Bates (son of Peter Hook of Joy Division and New Order). Regardless, the show was certainly a move in the right direction, and it certainly rocked too.

One of many stadium stops on the “Shiny and Oh So Bright” tour, Friday’s Smashing Pumpkins’ performance lived up to the reunion tour’s namesake. Over the course of the night, Corgan and Iha ripped through classics from their first five albums, also receiving help from fellow guitarist Jeff Shroeder. The band’s lighting and visual presentation (dreamed up by Corgan himself) was also elaborately stunning, making for an experience that had longtime fans pinching themselves time and time again throughout the evening.

Smashing P Space Oddity

For those who had been checking the band’s recent setlists prior to Friday’s show, there were few surprises as far as song selection and order. Numerous old school gems were sprinkled throughout the night, from “Ava Adore” to “Zero.” The band oddly chose to intermingle several covers into their show, some of which were a bit more questionable than others. For instance, the group’s stripped-down rendition of “Landslide” made sense, as the Pumpkins’ had once included their own version of the song as the 1994 B-side to “Disarm.”

But while certainly stadium-worthy, the group’s covers of “Space Oddity” by David Bowie and “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin left some scratching their heads. (In case you were wondering, I was part of that some.)

Nevertheless, the Pumpkins made up for these minor blunders with electrifying performances of their own stadium-worthy hits. Songs like “Cherub Rock,” “Today,” and “1979” had all in attendance singing at the top of their lungs. One other possible success of the evening was the subdued nature of Corgan’s comments between songs. Rather than living up to his often controversial reputation, the Pumpkins frontman stuck to shredding for most of the night, even mocking himself at one point late in the show (he referred to himself as a “walking meme”). All in all, the night exceeded expectations, leaving me hungry for more Pumpkins magic as Corgan, Chamberlain, and Iha continue going forward.
