Billy Corgan played his first-ever solo show at the Metro in Chicago Monday night. Corgan performed a series of songs he has written about Chicago. The evening was filmed for a DVD. Each of the 1,100 audience members received a program/lyric book. Besides lyrics, the booklets were filled with photos from the 1893 Columbian Exposition and World's Fair. Many of the 15 songs performed were new, and Corgan interacted quite a bit with the audience. Former Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin was in the balcony, and Corgan promised that at some point the two would work together again.
