I went to see the Smashing Pumpkins last night. It’s fair to say it wasn’t your average gig. There were so many ‘what the’ moments, I could do a detailed review, but 1) I think this article sums it up
and 2) I get the feeling there might be a general sniffyness here with respect to Billy & the boys. He’s not the last person to provoke an adverse reaction…
It was way over the top, too long and probably too expensive (although the ticket prices were pretty steep). But what’s the point in being bland? We all need a Space Oddity cover delivered by Billy up some steps reaching for the stars, don’t we?
