The cameos and covers continue on The Smashing Pumpkin’s 30th Anniversary tour.

On Sunday night, Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin welcomed the unlikely band Hanson to cover Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide.”

Previous guest appearances on the tour include Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath and Courtney Love.

“You saw these kids busking on the corner?” Billy jokingly asked guitarist James on stage. “You said hey kids, come on and play this Fleetwood Mac classic with us tonight.”

The cameo was appropriate in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Hanson brother’s hometown. The Smashing Pumpkins have also been covering “Landslide” since they first played it as a Disarm b-side in 1994. Taylor Hanson was part of a supergroup with James Iha called Tinted Windows, alongside Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick.

The Smashing Pumpkins wrap their North American tour this week before heading to Europe. Check out the fan-shot footage below.
