    The Smashing Pumpkins have rescheduled the last five dates of their reunion tour due to the recent overnight hospital stay of drummer Jimmy Chamberlin (the band's sole founding member aside from frontman Billy Corgan). Chamberlin was admitted to an Atlanta hospital last Tuesday after experiencing chest pains. He did not have a heart attack, but doctors discovered a partially blocked artery.

    "The good news is that my heart checked out—no damage," Chamberlin said in a statement. "Basically [there is] a small build up of plaque on one of my arteries. This combined with stress, fatigue and all of the other good things that go along with being on tour was the cause of my pain. So obviously we had to postpone the end of the tour while I recover. It should only be a week or so until JC is ready to rock again."

    rescheduled dates:

    11/7 Athens, GA - Classic Center Theater
    11/8 Greensboro, NC - War Memorial Stadium
    11/9 Columbia, SC - Township Auditorium
    11/11 Nashville, TN - Ryman Theater
    11/13 Austin, TX - Backyard
    11/15 Atlanta, GA - Fox Theater
    11/16 Atlanta, GA - Fox Theater
    11/18 Dallas, TX - Nokia Theater
