Billy Corgan and the NWA are traveling to Mexico once more with the Smashing Pumpkins.
The Smashing Pumpkins revealed their March 4 homecoming to Mexico. The advertised contest pits NWA vs. AAA. The National Wrestling Alliance is owned by Corgan, the vocalist of the Smashing Pumpkins. The Smashing Pumpkins’ 1995 song “Bullets with Butterfly Wings” from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is the inspiration for the festival’s name.
The Smashing Pumpkins’ Spirits on Fire Tour with Janes Addictions recently ended. The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California, hosted the tour’s final performance. Atum: A Rock Opera in Three Acts, the eleventh studio album from the American rock group The Smashing Pumpkins, was released in 2017. Act One of the Atum trilogies was released on November 15, 2022, Act Two on January 31, 2023, and Act Three on April 23, 2023. Three separate 11-track releases of the album will be made available. On their tour, the Smashing Pumpkins performed two songs, “Empires” and “Beguiled” from the upcoming Atum trilogy album.
On November 28, tickets for the presale go on sale, and the general public can buy them the next day.
The festival also features the musical performances of Interpol, Turnstile, Peter Hook & The Light, Deafheaven, The Warning, Ekkstacy, Chelsea Wolfe, Margaritas Podridas, In The Valley Below, El Shirota, and Acid Waves.
