Each band member will add their handprints in cement, joining a long list of global treasures before them.
When The Smashing Pumpkins first emerged out of Chicago in 1988, the world had never heard a band quite like them. They spun together Rock, Pop, Shoe-Gaze, Metal, Goth, Psychedelia, and Electronic into a kaleidoscope of saccharine melodies, fuzzy distortion, bombastic orchestration, incendiary fretwork, eloquent songcraft, and unshakeable hooks. Upon their formation, their sound was different, iconoclastic, and wholly new – and it still is today.
As a result, The Smashing Pumpkins have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and collected two Grammy Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, and an American Music Award. Their catalog is highlighted by the Platinum Gish (1991), the quadruple-Platinum Siamese Dream (1993), Diamond-certified Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995), Platinum Adore (1998), and Gold Machina/The Machines of God (2000).
In 2018, they embarked on one of their most successful tours ever, the Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour, followed by Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. Meanwhile, 2020 saw the release of the band’s eleventh full-length and latest double album, CYR. As prolific as ever, The Smashing Pumpkins confirmed they will release more music in 2022 as they resume touring.
Mohegan Sun Arena finished 2021 with its first “#1 Indoor Arena” ranking for its capacity in the world according to Pollstar and VenuesNow, ranked among the top 10 venues in the U.S. regardless of size based on ticket sales, and was named “2021 Innovator of the Year” by Celebrity Access for its ViacomCBS residency.
