The Smashing Pumpkins band performed to a packed house at The Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas this weekend. Fans from all around the country gathered to this intimate location on the Las Vegas Strip to hear this legendary band.
Smashing Pumpkins - Starla
Elevated above the famed Las Vegas Strip, the evening began with several throwbacks to the band’s earlier years with tracks like “Geek U.S.A.” and “Starla.” Eventually, new material from the band’s soon-to-be-released album Oceania began to soar through the venue.
Although the crowd sang along for the entire concert, one of the highlights of the evening came when frontman Billy Corgan stepped back to bask in the collective voices of the audience.
After a roaring and energetic encore, everyone in attendance cheered. As The Boulevard Pool began to empty out, concertgoers left with a greater dedication and heightened love for one of the country’s most acclaimed musical acts. Photo credit: Erik Kabik/ RETNA/ erikkabik.com/
