Smashign Pumpkins doing Musch Music's I & I
By KAREN BLISS -- Jam! Music
Those who didn't score tickets to The Smashing Pumpkins "intimate" benefit concert in Toronto will be able to catch the band on the first-ever outdoor Intimate & Interactive on MuchMusic.
On Sunday, July 19, the day before their sold-out show at Massey Hall benefitting the Street Outreach Services (SOS), Billy Corgan & co. will perform live in the MuchMusic parking lot at 9 p.m (E.T)., and field questions via phone, fax, email and Speaker's Corner for 90-minutes.
In support of its latest album, Adore, the multi-platinum band has been performing a host of free, open-air shows in unconventional settings, including the Speilbudenplatz in Hamburg, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.
Access to the I&I will be available through local radio promotions, MuchMusic giveaways and invitations through MuchAXS, MuchMusic's viewer loyalty club. (Much has also been known to let fans in from overseas, with proof of their plane ticket!)
MuchMusic has been bringing artists and fans together for its Intimate & Interactive concert series since 1992. Past participants have included Foo Fighters, The Tea Party, Moist, Beck, Sarah McLachlan, Sloan and Madonna.
