    I really could’ve done without the Mark McGrath interludes. Fuck that guy. 
    Was he the guy talking in between on the screen? I scooped up a side-stage ticket day of the show for half the price of the good seats, it was actually perfect because there was no obstruction and I could see the band clearly, and I didn't have to be subject to whatever was happening on the screens :)
    Yep, those little Vaudeville pieces before the Iha song and 1979.  I just can't stand McGrath.  I saw Sugar Ray open for 311 once and the dude was just a complete dick the whole time they were on stage.
    I wonder what their connection is. I saw the announcement of all the special guests for tonight's Holmdel show and I was like, MARK MCGRATH?

    Although Courtney Love should be...interesting.

    Wow, WPC spoke more introducing Courtney Love than he did the entire MSG show!

    I'm actually glad I went to a show without special guests. I think it would have taken away from the experience.

    Still can't believe Pumpkins are covering Stairway To Heaven in their current set. BC has brass cojones!

    Damn, last night's show was insane. I wish I would've went. SP30!

    Chino requested my fave pumpkins song "snail" and "Bodies" is always insane. Never been fan of Sugar Ray but it was priceless smiles on Billy and James faces while playing that. I will give it up to Mark McGrath. He has put out some shitty music but he is s student of rock n roll. He nailed it when he called Billy "the Brian Wilson of our Generation".

    I remember McGrath being on a celebrity edition of Rock n Roll Jeopardy back in the day on VH1...dude slaughtered his competition. Knew almost every answer on both boards.

    I gained a lot of respect for him that day, but still don't care for Sugar Ray's music.

    hope you guys get more than the 2 shows that are currently scheduled.

    They said that success in the US would dictate if more European shows are announced.

    37-year-old me loved the setlist; 20-year-old me was having an aneurysm. I love the Pumpkins, but I'm also a major Jimmy Chamberlin fanboy. I'd seen the Pumpkins with him, but I've also seen them without him - and if you've never seen him live it's worth whatever you pay just to watch him drum on "Siva." (Iha's stage banter's fantastic, too.) Also, and I can't believe I'm saying this, "Solara" was one of the highlights of the entire night; I didn't love it on the radio, but it's a monster live.

    In 2016, Corgan told the Chicago Tribune what he thinks of bandwagon celebrity Cubs fans ahead of his team’s first World Series win.

    “I don’t talk to other Cubs celebrities,” Corgan said. “In fact, I’m anti-Cubs celebrity. Although I know a few Cubs celebrities, other Cubs celebrities tend to show up when the playoffs are around. I don’t necessarily see them in June. I might be a little biased being a Chicagoan year-round.”

    Is that a shot at Eddie Vedder?

    It was definitely a little shot at Ed. But probably all the other Celebs that came out for the series. He wasn't a fan of All the Way either. 

    That being said, his attitude may have changed. Since then he's had his kid and that seems to have softened him.
