Billy Corgan and Perry Farrell, performed together once again at Lollapalooza on Sunday. During his performance with Porno for Pyros, Farrell brought out the Smashing Pumpkins frontman for a cover of Led Zeppelin’s 1971 track “When the Levee Breaks.”

Porno for Pyros quietly replaced Farrell’s other band Jane’s Addiction on this year’s Lolla lineup due to Dave Navarro’s ongoing battle with long COVID. Thankfully, Porno for Pyros had some opportunities to warm up before the big fest, having performed their first full set in 26 years just weeks ago. And with Corgan backing them up on guitar, that time off feels even more indistinguishable.

“I love y’all, Chicago, we love coming every year,” Farrell told the crowd. “We love to party with you all. Eat the great steaks. Everything else, man, the bars. The nightclubs. And our friendship. We have a very dear friend, Billy Corgan, that we got together — reunited — this time out. We wanna do a proper Chicago song for you together.”
