SMASHING PUMPKINS To Team Up With NOEL GALLAGHER'S HIGH FLYING BIRDS, AFI For North American Tour

SMASHING PUMPKINS and NOEL GALLAGHER'S HIGH FLYING BIRDS will hit the road together this summer. AFI will join as special guest on all dates. The special run of dates will see both artists performing outdoor shows at amphitheaters across North America throughout the month of August. The outing will also include an epic stop at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, California. More information on that show will be announced soon.

Produced by Live Nation, the 16-city trek will kick off August 8 in Camden, NJ at BB&T Pavilion and will make stops in Toronto, Chicago, Dallas, and more before wrapping August 31 in Mountain View, California at Shoreline Amphitheatre.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 8 at 10 a.m. local time at LiveNation.com. Citi is the official presale credit card for the tour. As such, Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets beginning Tuesday, March 5 at 10:00 a.m. local time until Thursday, March 7 at 10:00 p.m. local time through Citi's Private Pass program.

Formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1988, SMASHING PUMPKINS released their heralded debut album, "Gish", in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993's multi-platinum "Siamese Dream" and 1995's "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 embarked on the 2018 "Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour", 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 Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha, alongside longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder, bassist Jack Bates and keyboardist Katie Cole.

Noel Gallagher has been one of the U.K.'s most loved and successful songwriters for over a quarter of a century. His latest album, "Who Built The Moon?", debuted at No. 1 in the U.K. and was certified gold in less than two weeks of it's release and marked his 10th consecutive chart-topping studio album in the U.K. — 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 three-time-Grammy-nominated U.K. 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.
