Houston, Feb. 4, 2016 — Building on their fans' demands for more of last year's critically acclaimed In Plainsong tour, The Smashing Pumpkins return to the road this spring to bring the Acoustic-Electro Evening to classic North American theaters, including Cullen Performance Hall at the University of Houston.

Last year's shows sold out in a matter of minutes, and the iconic venues the band picked for the performances proved the perfect intimate settings for an evening of acoustic-based music and electronic soundscapes that allowed the Pumpkins to explore their whole song catalog in a unique way.

The Grammy Award-winning rock group, which includes Billy Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin and Jeff Schroeder, will end the tour at UH on April 20 at 7:30 p.m. with special guest Liz Phair.

Citi is the official credit card of the In Plainsong North American Tour. Citi card members will have access to presale tickets through Thursday, Feb. 4, through Citi's Private Pass Program. For complete presale details, visit

Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 5, at 10 a.m. at,,, by phone at 713-745-3000, or in person at the Entertain Houston ticket office at Gate 3 of TDECU Stadium. Prices are $75 and $65, not including service fees.
