Smashing Pumpkins Reportedly Drop Lisa Germano From Tour

Just a few days into their promotional tour for Adore, the Smashing Pumpkins have dropped multi-instrumentalist Lisa Germano from the tour, according to a Sonicnet report. Germano was brought into the touring band after they hired fellow former John Mellencamp band member Kenny Aronoff to fill the drummer position in the band.

The Pumpkins are packing a full bus worth of hired hands on the tour, with percussionists Stephen Hodges and Dan Morris and keyboardist Mike Garson joining Aronoff and core band members Billy Corgan, D'arcy and James Iha. The tour will make its way back into the U.S. in the summer, with the Pumpkins set for a seres of dates on the H.O.R.D.E. tour as well as a stretch of solo dates.
