In other news, last month The Smashing Pumpkins re-staged the release show that they held for their ‘Siamese Dream’ album 30 years ago and performed numerous rarities at the event.

Taking place on September 17, the band had the tea house made to look like the original Tower Records set. According to Stereogum, Tower Records itself also participated in the stunt and in an Instagram update Corgan revealed that it marked the first physical version of a Tower Records store since 2006.

As well as recreating the setting from their 1993 release show, the band also had another surprise installed for fans, as they brought out a nearly identical set to that of the original, as well as some rarities.

These included the track ‘Luna’, which hadn’t been performed live since 2006, and ‘Spaceboy’ – a deep cut from the album which the band have not included in their setlist since 2016.

Weezer, meanwhile, were joined onstage by Snail Mail recently to perform two tracks at a New York City show.
