October 31, 2007 - THE SMASHING PUMPKINS ANNOUNCE THE RESCHEDULING OF FIVE SHOWS FOLLOWING THE BRIEF HOSPITALIZATION OF
THE SMASHING PUMPKINS have announced the rescheduling of five shows after drummer JIMMY CHAMBERLIN was admitted to a hospital after experiencing some chest discomfort. Chamberlin was taken to an Atlanta hospital Tuesday (10/30) and was given an angiogram which revealed a partially blocked artery. He rested at the hospital overnight and was released Wednesday (10/31).
Says Chamberlin: "The good news is that my heart checked out. No damage. Basically a small build up of plaque on one of my arteries. This combined with stress, fatigue and all of the other good things that go along with being on tour was the cause of my pain. So obviously we had to postpone the end of the tour while I recover. It should only be a week or so until JC is ready to rock again." See below for all of Jimmy's thoughts that he expressed to fans at www.smashingpumpkins.com
Cities affected include:
* Atlanta (10/30, 31)
* Austin (11/2)
* Dallas (11/3)
* Nashville (11/5)
All tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates.
