Billy Corgan to Perform Benefit Show for 4th of July Parade Victims | Entertainment

HIGHLAND PARK, Illinois. (AP) — Rock singer Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins will host a charity live stream on July 27 to help victims of the Fourth of July parade shooting in suburban Chicago that left seven people dead and more than 30 injured.

Corgan, a 20-year-old resident of Highland Park where the shooting took place, said the show would take place at the town’s Madame Zuzu’s tea shop, which he co-owns with his partner Chloe Mendel.

He announced this on Thursday in a video posted on Madame Zuzu’s Instagram, according to the Daily Herald.

“There are so many people affected by this tragedy here,” Corgan said in the video. “This is very close to our hearts and we hope that you will also take part and support.”

Corgan said the show will feature several special guests. So far, Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and jazz saxophonist Frank Catalano have been named.

The show will be streamed for free on the Smashing Pumpkins YouTube page. There will be a link for viewers to donate.
