    They only had two good albums. I know Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness was a double album (Siamese Dream was the other album), but how long does it take to play the hits from those two albums?

    Siamese Dream was an excellent album, front to back.

    $65 to keep you captivated for 90 minutes? Ask the family that raised you for that deal and I'd wager SP got off easier than they did...You suck.

    First Gronk. Now Corgan. Beth's influence with the kitten pics is ubiquitous/

    They're one of those bands where I listen and feel I'd like it more if someone else was singing.

    Robin, nobody cared about cats until beth started raising awareness about adopting them. Now all these so called celebrities are trying to cash in on her thing. She really is a saint robin. Robin? Fred do we need a break?

    I saw Pearl Jam on the recent tour and loved the 3 hour show. Bands like PJ, Springsteen, and The Stones (when they still played that long) can get away with long shows because they have a body of work to support them. In most cases, I'm perfectly content with a 90 minute show. That gives me a dozen familiar songs and hits, a few 'from our new record', and an encore song or two. As long as the band is kicking ass for that hour and a half, I'm good.

    In the case of Smashing Pumpkins, they haven't been good live in forever. Corgan's ego won't allow him to even let the other guitarist be heard in the mix. They played here a few years ago and were haaaarible. The show was at capacity when they started and about half full an hour into their set. Consider yourself lucky that you were home at ten. You could have probably turned on Palladia and caught something better.

    I like the smashing pumpkins, but I think 90 minutes is all I could take of Billy's voice.
