Unexpected, eh?

This weekend saw an unlikely collaboration between Smashing Pumpkins and Hanson, as the bands came together to perform a cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s ‘Landslide’.

The alt-rock veterans were performing in Hanson’s native Tulsa, when they invited the brothers out to join them on the rendition from their ‘Pisces Iscariot’ album.

Turning to guitarist James Iha, frontman Billy Corgan joked: “As you were driving in your limousine today, you saw these kids busking in the corner and you said, ‘Hey kids, come out and play this Fleetwood Mac classic with us tonight’”

Iha then added: “Let’s welcome to the stage, Tulsa’s own Hanson.”
