Smashing Pumpkins played their 30th anniversary show at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, and it turned into a star-studded event.
The Pumpkins were joined on stage by some big time musicians, including: Deftones’ Chino Moreno and Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath and Dave Keuning.
The biggest expectation of the night was Billy Corgan’s reunion with his ex-Courtney Love. Their public feud has gone on for years and both Corgan and Love have trade pretty raw comments over the years.
Did they deliver, did they ever!!! Love, Corgan and the Pumpkins blasted through Hole classics Celebrity Skin and Malibu.
Introducing Love to the crowd, Corgan told the packed crowd: “We go way back to about 1990. There was a lot of LSD, so it’s a blurry year but I do remember the day we met this young lady.
“She was in this band called Hole. They had a few minor indie hits and then they just faded into obscurity. I jest!
“One of my favourite people in the world. We’ve made love, we’ve not made love, we’ve made up, we’ve broken up, but we’re back together again like George and Tammy. My dearest friend, Courtney Love!”
Courtney Love responded to Corgan: : “Nemesis, best friend, lover, worst friend, protector, career maker… I love this man with all my soul – and he co-wrote the songs that keep me sustained, so let’s go!”
