The band, who currently consist of frontman Billy Corgan and guitarist Jeff Schroeder, will be joined by The Killers' bass player Mark Stoermer and Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk for the show, which is part of a short European tour. 

Speaking about this special line-up, Corgan said: "We're absolutely thrilled and humbled to have Brad and Mark helping us out with these shows and if our rehearsals are any indication they should be one-of-a-kind”.
