Billy Corgan is not the type of artist who sits around with nothing to do, moping at the fact that his baby band Smashing Pumpkins has said farewell. The singer / guitarist extrordinare has been tapped by New Order as touring guitarist for the reunited crew this summer. New Order and Corgan will play a hush hush warm up gig in the UK which is slated for late June, then off to Japan for the Fuji Festival in July, and will continue to get paid when they join forces with Moby across the US in August. Corgan is NOT the permanent guitarist for the band, but does appear on New Orderís forthcoming album Get Ready, the groupís first record since Republic which dropped in 1993. Get Ready is due out August 27.
