You can find more info at The Smashing Pumpkins' official website, where they reflected on the success of an acoustic tour in 2015:
Last year's shows sold out in a matter of minutes, and the iconic venues the band picked for the performances proved the perfect intimate settings for an evening of acoustic based music and electronic soundscapes that allowed the Pumpkins to explore their whole song catalog in a unique way. The reaction to the run was overwhelmingly positive, with reviews calling the performances "electric" and "emotionally charged".
"What started as an interest in playing a truly different kind of show and looking for a different way to explore their storied musical past morphed into something new and exciting for the fans in every city", said the group's manager Peter Katsis, "this touches the opposing side to The Pumpkins usual roar!"
