Smashing Pumpkins and Weezer rock The O2

Billy Corgan’s children joined him on stage during the Smashing Pumpkins’ sold-out show in London over the weekend.

The US rockers – which also included original members James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin, as well as new guitarist Kiki Wong – took to the stage at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday (08.06.24) night and during their rendition of ‘Beguiled’, the 57-year-old frontman’s son Augustus, eight, and five-year-old daughter Philomena – who he has with wife Chloe Mendel – walked out in front of the crowd, where they waved and adorably showed off their dance moves.

‘Beguiled’ wasn’t the only track from the group’s recent record ‘Atum: A Rock Opera in Three Acts’ that fans got to hear, as they also played ‘Empires’, ‘Spellbinding’, ‘Springtimes’ and ‘That Which Animates the Spirit’, but it was on older tracks that the band really shone, with the crowd singing along to every word of classic hits including ‘Zero’, ‘Today’, ‘Tonight, Tonight’, ‘1979’ and ‘Bullet with the Butterfly Wings’.

Away from their own songs, fans were also treated to a cover of U2’s ‘Zoo Station’ early in their set, which perfectly showcased the sticks skills of drummer Jimmy .

Before Smashing Pumpkins came on stage, Weezer kicked off a rousing hour-long set with ‘My Name is Jonas’ before launching into a cover of Hole’s ‘Celebrity Skin’ – which was co-written by Billy – and sing-a-long tracks ‘In the Garage and ‘Hash Pipe’, ending their set on the classic ‘Buddy Holly’, which still sounded as fresh as on release 30 years ago.

The joint tour continues in Dublin on Monday (10.06.24) before the groups head to Glasgow on Tuesday (12.06.24) followed by stops in Manchester and Cardiff on Thursday (13.06.24) and Friday (14.06.24) respectively.
