Formed in Chicago, IL in 1988, The Smashing Pumpkins released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993’s 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995’s 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. With over 30 million albums sold to date, the two-time  GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains one of the most influential alternative rock bands in the world.

The seminal group toured their monumental Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour in 2018, which sold over 300,000 tickets across North America and saw them playing sold-out arena shows at venues including The Forum, United Center and Madison Square Garden. The tour was the band’s first in nearly two decades to feature Corgan, Chamberlin and Iha, alongside Schroeder, bassist Jack Bates and keyboardist Katie Cole. Critics were quick to praise the tour as “a massive gift to their fans” (Uproxx), “a welcome reminder of why those early albums resonated in the first place” (SPIN), and “an unforgettably rewarding and often spectacular odyssey” (Forbes).

Noel Gallagher has been one of the UK’s most loved and successful songwriters for over a quarter of a century. His latest album, Who Built the Moon? debuted at #1 in the UK and was certified gold in less than two weeks of it’s release and marked his 10th consecutive chart-topping studio album in the UK — a feat no other artist has ever achieved.  After leaving Oasis, Noel successfully launched his solo career as Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds with a self-titled album in 2011 which sold 2.5 million albums worldwide. Noel is the former lead guitarist and principal songwriter of Oasis, the 3X GRAMMY nominated UK rock band. Oasis quickly became one of the biggest bands in the world in the 90s, selling over 70 million albums worldwide to date, but, more than that, their music became the soundtrack of a generation.
