Madame ZuZu’s Transforms Into Tower Records for 30th Anniversary Milestone
The Smashing Pumpkins are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of ‘Siamese Dream,’ and they’re feeling a little nostalgic.
Billy Corgan’s Madame ZuZu’s in Highland Park, IL is bringing back 1993 by transforming the cafe into Tower Records, including neon sinage, an album cover backdrop, tons of merch, and iconic posters and designs from the album’s release. They even transformed their photobooth to a Tower Records one — a perfect keepsake for attendees.
Though the release date for ‘Siamese Dream’ was July 27, 1993, the band has been on their ‘The World Is A Vampire’ tour which just ended on September 9 in Indiana. The timing is not lost on us, as we also feel that the corresponding date being the same weekend as Riot Fest could have been a strategic move, getting more out of towners in at the same time.
It all wraps up in a nice little bow on Sunday when the band performs two shows at Madame ZuZu’s. If you can’t make it out to the actual event, there will be a livestream of the concert on a partnering app called VEEPS.com. Learn more about all of that at MadameZuzus.com.
