ASH have just been confirmed as special guests for The Smashing Pumpkins’ show at Wembley Arena on Juny 22, 2013.

They will be joined by Beware of Darkness for the gig.

Fresh from the release of their latest album Oceania, The Smashing Pumpkins are back in the UK this summer and will be playing three dates this July in Manchester, Glasgow and London.

Last year, The Pumpkins performed Oceania in full at their solo shows worldwide, backed by visuals prepared by Sean Evans, whose most recent work was assisting Roger Waters on the newest staging of The Wall.

For their 2013 dates The Pumpkins will be using new technology in video mapping to create something new and previously unseen. For the second half of the show, The Pumpkins will perform classics from their body of work.

Additionally to these headline dates The Smashing Pumpkins will also be performing at Glastonbury and various festivals across Europe and Asia throughout the summer.
