Smashing Pumkins to Tour NZ

From Stuff:
Reformed alternative rock act Smashing Pumpkins have joined forces with Queens of the Stone Age for a three-date New Zealand tour in March.
 
The bands will play Wellington's TSB Arena on March 20, Auckland's Vector Arena on March 22 and Christchurch's Westpac Arena on March 24.

Both acts will head to Australia after their New Zealand tour to perform four dates at the V Festival.
Billy Corgan reformed the Pumpkins in 2006, but only he and drummer Jimmy Chamberlain are original members from the classic line-up that released landmark albums Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.
They released a new album, Zeitgeist, in June last year, to mixed reviews.
The Pumpkins last toured New Zealand in 1996, but Billy Corgan performed a solo show at the St James in Auckland in 2005.
The Queens of the Stone Age, fronted by Josh Homme, performed in New Zealand in 2003 at the Big Day Out. Their last album was 2007's critically acclaimed Eva Vulgaris.
Tickets for the shows go on sale on February 11.
