AllMusic Review by

Oceania: Live in NYC features the Smashing Pumpkins performing their entire 2012 album, Oceania, at Brooklyn's Barclay Center. After the band's initial Halloween concert had to be canceled due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, the Pumpkins rescheduled the show for December 10, 2012. Backed by a visual presentation provided by artist Sean Evans (the designer of Roger Waters' "The Wall Live" tour), the band -- including lead singer/guitarist Billy Corgan, guitarist Jeff Schroeder, bassist Nicole Fiorentino, and drummer Mike Byrne -- played an intense show that included all of the tracks off Oceania, as well as some of the Smashing Pumpkins' best-loved songs. A multimedia experience, Oceania: Live in NYC is available in three formats including the CD/DVD package that includes the video of the live performance as well as two audio discs with every song the band played.
