Youtube is a treasure box full of footage from the May 22 concert The Smashing Pumpkins performed in France. Since I currently do not have tickets for any of the up and coming shows it has been very cathartic to watch the videos. So far my favorite is one that was put together with footage from all different parts of the show. Click on this link to see it!Video of The Smashing Pumpkins first show in Paris
Last time I saw the Pumpkins in concert was during the Machina tour in Mesa, AZ. It was in a lovely outdoor ampitheatre and we really had a great time. Shortly after that was the announcement; the Pumpkins were breaking up. I’ll admit right now that I cried, not hysterically or anything but there were tears. But during that concert Billy was wearing a fantastic black dress thing, ooh he looked so good. He always looks good, Billy has good taste in clothes. I saw him once when he was with Zwan, and again for his solo album The Future Embrace (which I so love) and each time I was impressed with what he was wearing. When video clips started pouring in from the reunion concert, once again I really liked what Billy wore: all white, with a little bit of black in the stripes.
Another exciting thing is that we are getting a chance to hear some of the songs from the new album, I have been watching them live on youtube and listening to them on a site called thepumpkins.netÃ‚Â to find and listen to the set list click on “music- Grand Rex” in the “latest editions” box. Ã‚Â I especially like Thats the way (my love is) and Bleeding the Orchid, not to mention what a thrill it is to hear songs like tonightÃ‚Â and cherubrock, and just feel the emotions of the crowd as the last song muzzle is played.
