The forthcoming planned Smashing Pumpkins reunion will not include the band’s original bassist D’arcy Wretzky. Rumors of the upcoming tour have swirled for years and Wretzky hit social media earlier this week and noted that she wasn’t in the loop on the decision.
“My apologies to all of the Smashing Pumpkins fans out there who are excited about this oncoming reunion tour of the original members of the band,” she said. “I know this is a huge disappointment for me, as well, but it’s not going to happen [with me]. I only just found about yesterday that the band has decided to go with a different bass player.”
Billy Corgan had previously stated that he planned to reunite the band’s “classic lineup,” teasing:
“It’s like, the door is open, and hopefully there will be some energy by which we, in some combination, can coalesce. But I’ve learned not to repeat my mistakes, which is, ‘It has to be this way, in this time frame.’ I’m applying no pressure. I’ve opened the door to it because of personal relationships and the peace that’s been demonstrated within, and hopefully there will be an opportunity there. If there is, great, if there isn’t, I’m happy to have the friendships. I don’t feel any burning need to prove a point.”
