Rolling Stone reports on Aug. 23 that the broadcast is an ongoing part of the band's Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour, which features the reunion of band co-founders Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha. The online event will be available to fans nationally in the U.S., as well as to viewers internationally.
Along with the reunion tour, Corgan and bandmates recently released their first new music together in nearly two decades with the single “Solara.” The song is the lead track from a highly anticipated set of two EPs, which are expected to drop in 2018.
“Solara” is available to purchase here in digital and streaming formats. Fans can whet their appetites for the live broadcast with a recently released official live music video of “Solara,” which was recorded at a secret show held June 27 in Los Angeles at The Troubadour.
The Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour launched July 12 in Glendale, Arizona. The summer reunion romp included a star-studded 30th-anniversary performance on Aug. 2 in Holmdel, NJ, which featured guest appearances by Courtney Love, Peter Hook, Mark McGrath, among many other stars.
The “1979” hitmakers will wrap up their North American leg on Sept. 9 in Edmonton, Alberta, at Rogers Place before heading overseas for a string of dates in Europe, which begin Oct. 16 in London at The SSE Arena.
