Smashing Pumpkins Are Coming to Lyric Opera House

Normally, we’d wait to publish a preview of a show until a few days beforehand, but this is (paradoxically) too cool and too hot to wait on: The Smashing Pumpkins are coming to the Lyric Opera House for an acoustic set on April 14 at 7:30 PM.

They did this type of thing last year, too, but we weren’t around to tell you about it. The show is called “In Plainsong.” It’ll feature original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin back in the fold and Liz Phair as an opening act. Tickets are available on Friday at 11:00 AM; you can get ’em at the Box Office, online at Ticketmaster, or over the phone at 800-745-3000.
