While Manson has spent a good chunk of 2015 on the road in support of his latest LP, The Pale Emperor, The End Times tour will mark the first significant set of live dates for Smashing Pumpkins following the release of their eighth album, Monuments To An Elegy.

Manson joined Corgan at one of those initial Monuments shows in London, performing his own single, “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge,” and assisting the Pumpkins on Adore’s “Ava Adore.” The moment seemed to settle a brief feud between the two, which ostensibly began — per an interview Manson gave to Larry King in 2013 — after the shock rocker suggested to Corgan that “it would be a good marketing idea that if he sold Charlie Brown T-shirts and bald caps at concerts.”
