LIVE REVIEW:: It’s 1979!! Smashing Pumpkins Live In HONG KONG

image

Just a month after seeing The Smashing Pumpkins in Paris, WWW had a chance to see the Pumpkins again in Hong Kong in Aug 2013 . Being the first time ever in Hong Kong, Billy Corgan took the fans back to the golden era of grunge, indie and alternative rock, when MTV used to play good music videos and people would still go to record stores to buy music. 

We appreciated the fact that the Pumpkins refused to be a nostalgic act, playing a bunch of new songs from the new “Oceania” album, but let’s admit it, we were there only for the old songs. We bet everyone in the arena who’s old enough to listen to the Pumpkins in the 90s would agree with us.  How could you not go crazy when you heard the intro of “Today”,” “Tonight, tonight” and “Cherub Rock”?  The 2-hour set was not only filled with massive volume and intensity, but also with dreams; the dreams that we wished it was 1994, when Billy still had hair, D’arcy, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlain were still around…well..let’s not go too far. After playing about 20 songs, Billy said he wanted to play an old song (hell yeah!) dedicated to the fans cause’ he wasn’t so sure if he would ever come to Hong Kong again. Just when we were guessing whether it would be “Mayonnaise” or “1979”, they started to play the drum machine and the crowd went nuts. As restless as were, singing along to the anthem of the 90s teens brought back memories and tears to you and I, who were once pretty cool kids.image
