Sharpen your fangs - there will be blood.

Billy Corgan set to unleash chaos and mayhem down under...

Well, this has gotta be the wildest tour announce in recent memory... and we are 100% here for it.

The legendary Smashing Pumpkins will bring The World Is A Vampire festival tour to ten cities across the nation this April.

But there's more - whoa Nelly - is there more...

The tour also features some very special guests including alt-rock legends, Jane’s Addiction and killer Aussie rock from Amyl & The Sniffers, RedHook, Battlesnake and local acts opening each show.  

PLUS ( and we cannot cannot believe what we're about to write ) each show will feature professional wrestling matches between Billy Corgan’s NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) and the WAOA (Wrestling Alliance of Australia). Deadset - this is going to be the gnarliest, most awesome, riff-shredding slamfest imaginable.

Don't think about it - just get your tickets now. This shit is gonna be off-the-chain wild.

The Smashing Pumpkins were one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s, often cited as one of the most influential acts in alternative rock. With a back catalogue of instantly recognisable certified classics - this is a live act that needs to be seen.

With their densely layered, diverse sound fusing elements of rock, metal, psyche, shoegaze and electronica, The Pumpkins stand apart from their peers. With over 30 million albums sold to date, the GRAMMY®, MTV VMA, and American Music Award winning band remains one of the most influential bands in history.

With this powerhouse headliner, supported by an embarrassment of riches and punctuated by body-slams, pile-drivers and flying clotheslines, this is going to be one of the most unique and unforgettable concert experiences of the year.

I implore you to get amongst it or rue the day you missed out.
