The Smashing Pumpkins will make their first televised performances in seven years when they perform a two-night stint on America's The Late Show with David Letterman next month (Jul07). The reformed group's shows, on 9 July and 13 July (07), will coincide with the release of Zeitgeist, the band's much anticipated sixth album - the first of new material since 2000. The Pumpkins have also lined up a sold-out nine-show residency at the Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina and a sold-out 11-show run at the Fillmore in San Francisco, California.
