Smashing Pumpkins’ frontman Billy Corgan brought his solo work to Nashville’s CMA Theater Friday night. The show was billed as an intimate evening with the 90s artist, who is currently touring in support of his latest album Ogilala.
The CMA Theater is located inside the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Downtown Nashville. The modern venue, with just under 800 seats, was filled close to capacity for the Friday night show.
Ogilala, Corgan’s second solo album and the first put out under his full name – William Patrick Corgan – was met with mixed reviews. The concert wasn’t much different. The evening was dark and despondent. Corgan switched from piano to guitar as a one-man show throughout the evening, dressed in a black soviet-style coat and hat.
The first half of the set featured solo work, while the latter showcased what probably brought most people to the venue – Smashing Pumpkins hits.
The Ogilala Tour will make a stop in Boulder, CO tomorrow night, and then close out with a string of sold-out shows in Los Angles.
