Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson will be spreading Nineties angst and nostalgia across the United States this summer when they embark on their co-headlining tour dubbed, The End Times.
The 23-date trek kicks off July 7th at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, California and concludes August 8th at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Tickets will go on sale April 3rd, while more information will be made available on the Pumpkins’ and Manson’s respective websites. A full list of tour dates is below.
While Manson has spent a good chunk of 2015 on the road in support of his latest LP, The Pale Emperor, The End Times tour will mark the first significant set of live dates for Smashing Pumpkins following the release of their eighth album, Monuments To An Elegy. Billy Corgan and Co. did play a handful of shows upon the album’s release last December, with Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk and Killers bassist Mark Stoermer comprising the band’s rhythm section; no word yet on whether they’ll rejoin the Pumpkins this summer.
Manson joined Corgan at one of those initial Monuments shows in London, performing his own single, “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge,” and assisting the Pumpkins on Adore‘s “Ava Adore.” The moment seemed to settle a brief feud between the two, which ostensibly began — per an interview Manson gave to Larry King in 2013 — after the shock rocker suggested to Corgan that “it would be a good marketing idea that if he sold Charlie Brown T-shirts and bald caps at concerts.”

Jeremy Brown, guitarist for Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, died on Monday at the age of 34 of undisclosed causes, just one day before the release of the group’s debut album Blaster. Weiland broke the news to fans on Facebook, writing that the band grew anxious when the guitarist, who had performed with the Stone Temple Pilots singer for seven years, failed to show up for rehearsals before their album release show Monday.
“We received a call today about my friend Jeremy Brown that has shaken me to the core. We were all concerned this afternoon when Jeremy didn’t show up for a long-scheduled rehearsal for tonight’s album release show at School Night,” Weiland wrote. “An hour later, Jeremy’s family called us to say that he had passed away. I am in shock right now; everyone that knows him is devastated. It is a terrible loss that goes beyond words. He is one of my best friends, a truest friend and one of the most gifted guitar players that I’ve ever known. A true genius.”
Brown first worked with Weiland in 2008 when the singer recorded his solo album “Happy” in Galoshes. Brown, along with Wildabouts bassist Tommy Black and drummer Danny Thompson, also accompanied Weiland on the road for the singer’s Purple to the Core tour, where Weiland performed Stone Temple Pilots’ Core and Purple live. Inspired by the group’s chemistry, Weiland hit the studio with his backing band and set out on recording Blaster.
“The sound we were getting felt original and infectious and brought me back to the feelings I had when I made my first couple records. Just excitement, feeling invigorated. Youthful,” Weiland told Rolling Stone. “Blaster is definitely a band sound: a stripped-down, furry sound with a lot of space between the notes. But it’s tight and to-the-point while keeping that garage rock vibe.” In an interview with LA Weekly, Weiland said Brown “came up with a majority of the riffs” for Blaster.
Weiland cancelled the band’s album release gig Monday night at Los Angeles’ School Night after learning of Brown’s death. “It’s impossible to explain how much he will be missed and what a hole this will leave in our hearts,” Weiland wrote. “A post on Facebook feels so trite and small compared to the love that I have for him and for the talent that has passed on but I felt it was necessary to at least start here. Please keep his family in your thoughts.”

The agreement includes digital rights to over 2.5 million copyrights, including recordings from such artists as Scorpions, Jean-Michel Jarre, Black Sabbath, Kylie Minogue, Boyz II Men, Smashing Pumpkins and Bryan Ferry, as well as rights in songs from the likes of Bruno Mars, John Legend, Robbie Williams, the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and will.i.am.
The deal is the latest step in BMG’s plan to expand their footprint in the burgeoning Chinese market and follows on news late last year that BMG Chinese independent Giant Jump to manage its music publishing and recording rights both domestically and internationally.
Dora Yi, Chief Investment Officer of BMG China, said, “This is a game-changing deal for BMG. Alibaba is one of the most progressive and successful companies in China and is the ideal partner for us as we begin to unleash the potential of BMG’s catalogue here.” - via CelebrityAccess
