    All the anecdotes and terrible jokes more than make up for it IMO. I don't need anyone performing rockstar poses.
    Does he not know that contacts are a thing? Is he unaware of the existence of Lasik eye surgery? We know he can afford it...

    I just saw those performances on Jimmy Fallon and I was like.... eh.... there doesn't seem to be a lot of life in those performances.

    During their Howard Stern appearance this week, Billy talked for an hour, did his usual nonsense on how he saw shape shifters and lizard people. The rest of the band sat in utter silence. James said 1 word the entire interview. Howard basically begged James to talk and he wouldnt mutter more than 1 or 2 words. This reunion won't last 10 shows

    Is Billy legitimately unwell now?

    And I'm sure they're riding in separate buses...

    When Howard got to the D'arcy part of the interview, Billy rambled on about how it was a mutual decision by everyone to not allow her back, so when Howard asked James about her.....Didnt sound so mutual....He mumbled something about how he's sorry it didn't work out and how it's weird and then Howard changed the subject....10 shows then it'll crash...Maybe 5

    Finally watched the Jimmy Fallon performances.
    I thought the new song was okay. It was about what I expected.
    Zero seemed really good to me with the exception of Billy's voice. Jimmy always looks that way IMO, same goes for James.
    Billy just doesn't have a voice live anymore. I think he knows it, so he isn't going to strain his voice even more.
    Even when I saw SP back in 2008 I though his voice was awful and shot then. It happens to most singers.
    I love the Pumpkins but I am realistic about new music and performing these days.

    Finally listened to Solara. Big time Meh.

    Sounds like a Zeitgeist outtake. And I didn't even hate Zeitgeist, but that's not really what I was hoping for here.

    Hoping the 7 other tracks are a bit more diverse.

    And yeah the performance was lackluster and subdued, but I also don't put a lot of stock in the late night show performances.

    Still believe the eventual live show will be pretty awesome. And I wouldn't have a lot of concerns that they won't make it through the dates. Too much money on the line to bail. Everyone knew what they were getting into here. You would like for it to not be a grind, but if it is, it's not like there is an insane amount of dates. They will trudge onward and play the shows. If anything maybe we just lose out on some encores, extended James banter etc.
