band had great energy but sound mix was so muddled everything just sounded like noise. Could not hear melodies or lyrics. Very disappointing audio experience for Gibson amphitheater.

Lousy opening band. Show of course did not start on time. Pumpkins took the stage after 9pm. Of course saved their best hits for the end so everyone had to suffer through their metal garbage.

This was way better than it had any right to be! The latest configuration of the Pumpkins is made up of real players. Any Pumpkins fan is going to miss the days of D'Arcy, Jimmy, and James, but the reality is Jeff and Nicole are probably better on...continued

We got to the will call line early (around 6:30 pm) and there was no line. Much better than previous Goldstar events we have been to at the Gibson. We ended up getting seats in the Mezzanine (balcony) in row C. Not really a bad view, but the folks...continued

I guess I should have listened to the new album before I went to the concert. They were good, but not what I expected. I was hoping they'd play more of their older songs that I loved like 1979 and Perfect...which was the reason I fell in love...continued

Don't go unless you like the new Smashing Pumpkins songs. I was hoping to hear classic Smashing Pumpkins, all the songs they're famous for. They really only played two good songs. Very disappointed.

Outstanding show last night. New album sounds awesome. Their cover of Space Oddity was amazing and it was so great to hear some of the band's biggest hits live again.

In the tradition of prior Smashing Pumpkins albums, Oceania needs to be listened with a pair of good headphones to hear and appreciate the aural nuances. The Smashing Pumpkins have such confidence in their new album that they are playing it in its...continued

Another amazing show by the Smashing Pumpkins! Although I must admit Oceania is far from my favorite list of their work the music, show and atmosphere was electric. Rest assure that plenty SP classics were performed to everyones delight. Amazing...continued

Very nice show, great venue and band.
They played the whole (or at least almost all) songs of the new album Oceania at the beginning and then started the classics. They didn't play 2 of my favorite ones, that's the only reason I didn't rate it a...continued
