Last week the Pumpkins sent out an announcement saying the U.S. portion of its fall tour would kick off Oct. 10 in Seattle, followed by gigs in tour markets that include San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis, Detroit and Boston.
Turns out the Oct. 10 show is actually scheduled in nearby Everett, Wash. Here’s what the U.S. routing looks like:
Oct. 10 – Everett, Wash., Comcast Arena At Everett
Oct. 12 – San Francisco, Calif., Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
Oct. 13 – San Diego, Calif., Viejas Arena
Oct. 14 – Universal City, Calif., Gibson Amph. At Univ. CityWalk
Oct. 16 – Broomfield, Colo., 1stBank Center
Oct. 18 – St. Louis, Mo., Chaifetz Arena
Oct. 19 – Rosemont, Ill., Allstate Arena
Oct. 20 – Saint Paul, Minn., The Roy Wilkins Auditorium
Oct. 23 – Auburn Hills, Mich., The Palace Of Auburn Hills
Oct. 27 – Boston, Mass., Agganis Arena
Oct. 31 – Brooklyn, N.Y., Barclays Center
Nov. 2 – Camden, N.J., Susquehanna Bank Center
Nov. 3 – Fairfax, Va., Patriot Center
Nov. 4 – Uncasville, Conn., Mohegan Sun Arena
Previously announced Canadian dates are scheduled in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Oct. 2); Calgary, Alberta (Oct. 4); Edmonton, Alberta (Oct. 5); Vancouver, British Columbia (Oct. 7); Toronto, Ontario (Oct. 25) and Montreal, Quebec (Oct. 28).
The U.S. tour setlist will follow the same game plan as the Canadian gigs. The shows will begin with the band playing its new album, Oceania, in full, followed by “classics and deep cuts.” Look out for visuals from Sean Evans (who worked on Roger Waters’ newest version of “The Wall” tour) and “something new and previously unseen” thanks to new technology in video-mapping.
Oceania, described as “an album within an album,” was released in June as part of the band’s 44-song work-in-progress Teargarden By Kaleidyscope project.
In addition to the exact locations and dates, the Pumpkins have also announced ticket onsale info.
A presale for Broomfield, St. Louis, San Francisco, Boston and Brooklyn began today. A presale for Universal City begins Tuesday, Aug. 28. A presale for the rest of the U.S. dates kicks off Tuesday, Sept. 4. The Canadian dates are on sale now.
