Xcel Energy Center will be rocking to classic songs from The Smashing Pumpkins when they bring their reunion tour to Minnesota on Friday, Aug. 19, 2018. 

It's going to be a collection of their best songs and the first time three of the four original band members tour together since 200. Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin will be together again. 

The only original member not joining them is bassist D'Arcy Wretzky, according to Rolling Stone

The tour is called "Shiny And Oh So Bright" and will feature songs from their first five albums: "Gish," "Siamese Dream," "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness," "Adore," and "Machina."

"This show and staging will be unlike any we've ever done, and will feature a set unlike any we've ever played," Corgan told Rolling Stone. "For if this is a chance at a new beginning, we plan on ushering it in with a real bang."

Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 23 via Ticketmaster and the Xcel Energy Center box office and range in price from $29.50-$129.50.
