Smashing Pumpkins have announced the guests who’ll appear during the mostly reunited band’s special 30th anniversary show, taking place August 2 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey.
Among the artists who’ll join the Pumpkins on stage during the concert are Deftones frontman Chino Moreno, Courtney Love, AFI‘s Davey Havok, Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook, Dave Keuning and Mark Stoermer of The Killers, and Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath.
Most of those artists have a connection to the Pumpkins in some way: Hook’s son Jack Bates plays bass in the current iteration of the band, while Stoermer was a former touring member.
Love, of course, has had a, uh, complicated relationship with Corgan. He co-wrote five songs on Celebrity Skin, the third album by Love’s band, Hole. The two also dated off and on in the ’90s, and have continued to trade barbs through the media.
In a 2014 interview with Paper magazine, Love said she was “done” with grudges, but added that “the only person I’m concerned about is Corgan.” We’ll see how Love’s performance with the Pumpkins goes this Thursday.
In addition to the guests, the 30th anniversary show will feature a “career-spanning setlist,” “never before seen production” and “more surprises.”
