Smashing Pumpkins: First Concert Update

Billy Corgan in Paris
I know that we've all been waiting patiently, and the moment has finally arrived. For the first time in seven years the newly revived Smashing Pumpkins took the stage in Paris to promote their upcoming album. The three hour show included 29 songs, with a nice mix of old and new, including an acoustic show sandwiched in the middle, featuring tracks such as "33," "Winterlong" and "To Sheila."

The revised band included the originals Billy Corgan, and Jimmy Chamberlin as well as newcomers guitarist Jeff Schroeder, bassist Ginger Reyes and keyboardist Lisa Harriton.

The Pumpkins will continue their tour through the summer to promote their new album "Zeitgeist", due out July 10.

The entire set list:

"United States"
"Stand Inside Your Love"
"Doomsday Clock"
"God and Country"
"To Sheila"
"Glass and the Ghost"
"Cherub Rock"
"That's the Way"
