AFI, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and The Smashing Pumpkins pack the Budweiser Stage,Toronto

Toronto, Ontario (August 13, 2019)-The Smashing Pumpkins rolled through the Budweiser Stage in Toronto on Wednesday with supporting acts AFI and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

AFI warmed up the house, playing a inspired 30 minute set, prepping the audience for a night of killer rock. When Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds took the stage, the crowd was already primed and started singing along to Gallagher’s solo work from the start. Gallagher’s first half of the set was primarily his solo stuff while the more familiar songs from his time in Oasis made up the later. The crowd was thrilled to sing along to Wonderwall” and a searing cover of The Beatles, “All You Need Is Love,” that put the finishing touches on the entertaining co-headliners set.

In a traditional fan salute to the Smashing Pumpkins, not a fingernail was left unpainted with black nail polish.With the stage fully decorated with elaborate towering characters from a Frankenstein-like movie, The Smashing Pumpkins entered the stage with the crowd screaming excitedly. When the guitars wailed out the opening riffs to “Today,” Billy Corgan and the rest of the ‘Pumpkins took up familiar positions across the stage. For the next hour and forty minutes every hit song that any Pumpkins fan would know was covered. Classics mega-hits such as “1979,””Disarm” and “Cherub Rock,” virtually took you back to the time when The Smashing Pumpkins were the kings of rock.

The Smashing Pumpkins were once again the powerhouse band their fans have come to love and admire, even if it was just for “Tonight,Tonight.”
