The band were performing at the Aragon Ballroom in Chiacgo, when they honoured the city’s hometown rock heroes with a fiery rendition of the ‘Siamese Dream’ single.
Another nod to the band came later in the set when they worked a brief instrumental cover of ‘Zero’ from ‘Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness’ into their ‘15 minutes of metal’ medley – as debuted last week at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Following a huge show at Wembley earlier this year, Smashing Pumpkins will return to the UK to perform at Download Festival 2019.
