Disappointing - too many songs from the frankly rubbish new album, not enough of their classics

Scott Anthony Marsden
Now is the time to stand up and recognise Billy Corgan as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. At the leeds festival The Smashing Pumpkins proved they are still one of the greatest live bands of all time. With there Deep, hard ,melodic and psycadelic sound it was hard to look away with Billy Corgan playing some of the greatest guitar solo's that most of todays bands could only dream of playing. The Smashig Pumpkins played a variety of songs from there new album but it was the classic hits that really got the crowd going. Fans were treated to epic performances of Bullet with butterfly wings, Today, Hummer, Heavy metal machine and Zero but for me it was Tonight Tonight That really summed up this performance as somethig special. Come on guys lets give Billy Corgan the legend status he really deserves
