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.

Tickets are on sale now 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.
