Watch HALESTORM's LZZY HALE Join SMASHING PUMPKINS For Cover Of LED ZEPPELIN's 'Stairway To Heaven'

HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale joined SMASHING PUMPKINS on stage Friday night (July 20) at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Friday to perform a cover version of the LED ZEPPELIN classic "Stairway To Heaven". Fan-filmed video footage of her appearance can be seen below.

The "Shiny And Oh So Bright" North American arena tour is SMASHING PUMPKINS' first in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. Longtime SMASHING PUMPKINS guitarist Jeff Schroeder, bassist Jack Bates, and keyboardist Katie Cole are also taking part, as the band moves to a three-guitar lineup to better emulate the signature tones and textures of their albums.

Last month, SMASHING PUMPKINS dropped "Solara", the first recording in over 18 years to feature founding Corgan, Iha and Chamberlin. Recorded in Malibu, California at Shangri La Studios with producer Rick Rubin and guitarist Jeff Schroeder, "Solara" is available now to stream and download on all digital music platforms via Martha's Music under license to Napalm Records.

Corgan, Iha and Chamberlin last played together on 2000's "Untitled". "Untitled" was Iha's last PUMPKINS recording prior to "Solara", while Chamberlin's was 2009's "FOL".
