Watch Smashing Pumpkins Play "Solara" and "Zero" on <i>Fallon</i>

Smashing Pumpkins have been making a lot of announcements recently: First, there was a a reunion tour, then an expansion of that same “Shiny And Oh So Bright” tour to include a special anniversary show and then a new single, their first to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin in nearly two decades. On Monday, they capped it all off with a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The rockers debuted their newest single “Solara” for television audiences, then they stuck around to perform their song “Zero” from 1995’s Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness in a web-exclusive clip. You can watch both below.

There’s a notable absence in all of the band’s latest ongoings: Founding bassist D’Arcy Wretzky is no longer part of the squad. After public speculation and also some public feuding, Wretzky was uninvited from the reunion tour. The band is carrying on regardless, “Solara” being the first new music released under the Smashing Pumpkins moniker since 2014’s Monuments to an Elegy.

You can find dates for the “Shiny And Oh So Bright” reunion tour right here and watch Smashing Pumpkins’ Fallon performances below, plus a 1994 set from the Paste archives.
