UPDATE: According to Pumpkins friend site Crestfallen.com, the Smashing Pumpkins are planning a southern leg of the United States Oceania tour. There is a rumored South American tour date at a Chilean music festival that runs November 10-11, around a week after the Pumpkins’ Connecticut gig; if that rumor proves to be true, the proposed southern leg may not directly follow the northern leg.
