You are currently viewing Smashing Pumpkins Beguile During Special Homecoming Set At Metro Chicago

For nearly 35 years, Chicago’s Metro has served as a special home for alternative rock act Smashing Pumpkins, with the group performing at the iconic 1,100 person capacity club on nearly 40 occasions.

At times, Metro was home to career firsts, like the group’s debut performance at the venue in October of 1988, one doubling as their first ever with drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. A month later, the band would wind up as a last minute Metro opening act on a bill featuring Jane’s Addiction, a pairing which will be revisited starting October 3 as Jane’s and the Pumpkins launch the co-headlining “Spirits On Fire” arena tour across the country.
