Smashing Pumpkins finally return to Chicago with four November dates

The Smashing Pumpkins are once again playing Chicago...finally.

Billy Corgan and company have announced four shows in November, all of which go on sale October 13. The dates are:

- November 18 - Chicago Theatre

- November 19 - Chicago Theatre

- November 21 - Auditorium Theatre

- November 22 - Auditorium Theatre

The reunited Pumpkins (well, the only original members are Corgan and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin - James Iha and D'Arcy Wretzky decided not to participate) played their first gig in May 2007, and had yet to perform in their home town, much to the frustration and bewilderment of local fans. The long awaited return promises a repertoire full of both hits and "surprises."

The Pumpkins released their comeback album, "Zeitgeist," last year, and will soon put out a new single called "G.L.O.W."

Keep your eyes on the band's official site for pre-sale news.
