Marilyn Manson & The Smashing Pumpkins Planning Collaborative Sets On Summer Tour, Cage To Open


Marilyn Manson and Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins took part in a Reddit AUA in anticipation of their ‘The End Times Tour‘ together. The pair revealed that Cage will apparently be opening the trek and that The Smashing Pumpkins will be closing each night, with Manson offering:

“Well, Billy‘s – the Smashing Pumpkins obviously deserve to go as the headliner. So just out of pure respect, I wouldn’t dispute that. Although I’m sure a really good friend of mine, CAGE, is opening for us. You should hashtag him on Twitter #CageWorm, I think. I’m not sure.”

Corgan also revealed that the Manson and The Smashing Pumpkins—or at least Corgan himself—will be teaming up for special sets on each night of the tour. Regarding that, Corgan stated:

“I think our plan is to approach the tour as an artistic opportunity. Push one another to play a cooler, heavier, deeper set than we would, with the idea of the night ending with us playing together. But the whole NIGHT will be a unique experience. We’re actually going to figure it out so the whole night feels like a really unique event.”
