The live performance marked the tip of Pumpkins’ joint “Spirits on Fireplace Tour” with Jane’s Dependancy.

Smith, who performs as “WILLOW,” took the stage towards the tip of the band’s set after a quick introduction by guitarist James Iha.

Becoming a member of Corgan, Iha, and Jeff Schroeder, WILLOW introduced the band’s headcount of guitarists to 4, which absolutely delighted the frontman’s insatiable want for dense, distortion layering.

WILLOW later posted a collection of photographs from the live performance together with a caption that includes the “Who desires that honey” line from the track’s refrain. In a subsequent put up, she shared snaps of her with Corgan and Iha through the efficiency.
