Billy Corgan took a very different path on Saturday night at Chicagos Ravinia Festival, playing a three-hour/31-song acoustic career retrospective.

Included in the show were a large group of Smashing Pumpkin songs, including eight songs mid-set from Mellon Collie & the Infinite Sadness.

Also included were five unreleased songs including one from the never issued ChicagoSongs / ChicagoKid and the rest, presumably from Smashing Pumpkins upcoming albums Monuments to an Elegy or Day For Night.

Corgan has said that those two albums, both slated for 2015, may be the end of his recording career. He told the Chicago Tribune that it is getting too hard to get music released and in front of the fans. 'I'm not willing to wait around 15 to 20 years to have somebody go, 'Hey, that album you made is really good' and then sell it to the 7000 people that are still paying attention. When this new album process is over, I'm either going to bail on this ship for good or I'm going to have a new ship to sail on.'
