Just a couple days after Pearl Jam rocked the house in Glendale, more '90s superstars announced a new tour with a stop in Phoenix.

Smashing Pumpkins will kick off their headlining Spirits on Fire Tour on October 2, and will play downtown Phoenix's Footprint Center on Friday, November 18. And as if that wasn't awesome enough, Jane's Addiction is also on the bill. (YouTube phenomenon Poppy will open most of the shows on the tour.)

Presale for the Phoenix date opens at 10 a.m. Arizona time on Thursday, May 12. General on-sale begins at 10 a.m. Arizona time on Friday, May 13.

Smashing Pumpkins' 11th and most recent album, the double album CYR, came out in 2020. Jane's Addiction haven't released a studio album since 2011's The Great Escape Artist.
