The Smashing Pumpkins will play a rare club show April 10 in Detroit, TicketMaster Online has announced. Industry sources said they believe the show is part of a short national club tour, but a Pumpkins spokesperson would not comment on the Pumpkins' plans when contacted Thursday afternoon. Tickets for the Detroit show, at St. Andrew's Hall, go on sale April 3. Meanwhile it has been reported that former Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin -- who was fired after the 1996 drug-overdose death of touring keyboardist Jonathan Melvoin -- has been working with the band again.
