To make up for all the great live rock shows we’re missing due to Coronavirus, we’re spotlighting one would-be performer each week, all summer long.
Last week, we kicked off the summer-long series with a 1994 Bon Jovi bootleg from the Orpheum, since we’re missing them at TD Garden this month. And since we’re missing Guns N’ Roses with Smashing Pumpkins at Fenway in a few weeks, let’s flashback to something live and local from each.
GNR headlined the Garden on St. Patrick’s Day in 1993, so let’s start with that bootleg.
And for an encore? Smashing Pumpkins performing “Today” at TD Garden from just two summers ago.
