Billy Corgan won’t be touring any full albums

“Fans are bored with it. That’s nothing disrespectful."
Billy Corgan has no interest in performing any full album shows, according to a new interview with Rolling Stone.

The Smashing Pumpkins’ classic record ‘Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness’ turned 20 last year, but there was no special reissue or tour to celebrate. That’s not Corgan’s style.

“The only way that would happen for any album is if we staged it almost like a Broadway show, where it involved visuals and the music rewritten into a particular form,” he explains. “The idea of getting up and playing an album that was never meant to be played live in that sequence smacks of consumerism. That stuff is the dregs of the music business, and I have a hard time believing that anyone out there doing it really wants to do it.

“Fans are bored with it. That’s nothing disrespectful. I’m proud to have made such an album that’s important. The millennials love Siamese Dream. Who would have guessed that!? No one is harder on the millennials than me. But they love Siamese Dream? Great! But I’m not gonna go out there and hack around just to reclaim some light that I don’t feel has gone out. The light is still in my eyes. I’m still more than capable of producing new work. I wrote a new song this morning.”
