Smashing Pumpkins, Noel Gallagher, AFI set for summer tour

Smashing Pumpkins and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are teaming up for a joint summer tour of North America. AFI will open all of the dates.

The 16-date tour begins Aug. 8 in Camden, N.J., and concludes Aug. 31 in Mountain View, near San Jose. It also includes two additional California concerts — Aug. 28 at San Diego’s North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre (the venue formerly known as Mattress Firm Amphitheatre), and Aug. 30 at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.

For Smashing Pumpkins, this summer’s concert trek comes a year after three of the Chicago-bred band’s original four members reunited in 2018 for a 30th anniversary tour, which included a September show at SDSU’s Viejas Arena. The group’s latest album, “Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1: No Past. No Future. No Sun,” was released last year.

Gallagher formed High Flying Birds in England in 2011, two years after his previous band, Oasis, imploded. His most recent album — “Who Built the Moon?” — was released in 2017.

Tickets for the Pumpkins/Gallagher/AFI tour go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m. local time at livenation.com and ticketmaster.com, and by phone: (800) 745-3000. A pre-sale for Citi card-holdres begins Tuesday at 10 a.m. local time.

Tickets for the San Diego show are priced from $29.50 to $129.50, plus service charges.
