    It turns out a headlining appearance at the Forecastle Music Festival won’t be the only US date on the Smashing Pumpkins’ itinerary this summer. As Hipsters United points out, the band announced a series of US tour dates on its Facebook page today.

    Currently, Corgan and friends — the newest of which is bassist Nicole Fiorentino — are set to hit the road beginning July 6th in Cleveland, Ohio. Three weeks worth of dates follow and include the aforementioned performance at Forecastle as well as dates across the mid-west and south eastern portions of the United States. The last confirmed date is set for July 24th in Memphis, but the Pumpkins “also plan to tour South America and Australia in 2010 and hope to return to the U.S. later this year.”

    An official announcement is expected to be made “soon” and we’re assuming we’ll get ticket information then. In the meantime, check out all confirmed dates below.

    Update: In addition to all of the aforementioned…

    “[BILLY] CORGAN and his band mates–guitarist JEFF SCHROEDER, drummer MIKE BYRNE and new bassist NICOLE FIORENTINO—are planning to invite select fans to attend their sound checks (details TBA). “We are going to do something unique, which is play an invite-only set during sound check of almost all new, unreleased songs,” says Billy. “We’re still figuring out a way to make it possible for some of the fans who’ll be in the line outside waiting to get in for that.”
