    Smashing Pumpkins

    Has anybody seen them live and if so, do they put on a good live show? I've been somewhat of a fan of them for awhile, but have never seen them live before. They are coming to Dallas in Nov., so I'm just wondering if they are worth seeing or if I should pass it up and wait for a better show to come along.

    Go to the show man. It'll be a blast.

    Live shows are great, no matter if you're really into the band or not. And if you are actually into them, then you're almost guaranteed to have an awesome time.

    Thanks for the advice so far. I'm sure I'll have a great time at the show. The problem is my wife only lets me go to 3 shows a year (she says I'm too old to be going to shows, I'm only 27). So after I go to Ozzfest this summer, I'll only have 1 more left, so I'm trying to make sure it's a good one.

    saw them back when they were huge in the 90's.
    Zero and 1979 are still some of my favorite songs.
    I suggest seeing them if you can.

    They are definitely worth seeing live. They came to my town and played a small club as one of their last shows before they had broken up for a while (this would have been 1999 or 2000 or so). It was absolutely fantastic according to my friends who went. I'd have gone too if there wasn't a line 4 blocks long 3 days ahead of time.

    Thanks for all of the input everyone. It was either go to this show or go to The Cure show, so I've decided to go ahead and go to this show. I pre ordered the new album last night so I can get the presale code for the tickets.

    go to the smashing pumpkins for sure. one thing to remember: they are anti-mosh. a girl got killed at one of their concerts once, and they get mad at violent moshers.

    People are idiots. I mean...if you see a girl getting thrashed in front of you and you keep going...you deserve to have your balls cut off.

    Also...Smashing Pumpkins are awesome.

    I haven't seen them live in a decade. Nice to know they're still around.

    Great show.

    i agree 100%. I was at an underoath concert, and a girl got trampled in the mosh pit, and she wasn't even involved in it, she was just too close to the edge. Of course no one bothered to help her up, and she had to be taken to the hospital, luckily she didn't die...
