The Alarm has been on tour in the U.S. this summer with contemporaries Modern English and Jay Aston’s Gene Loves Jezebel, a package that drew a high-profile guest in Cleveland last night: Smashing Pumpkins frontman slash Alarm fan Billy Corgan, who joined the Mike Peters-led band onstage to help perform its 1987 single “Rain in the Summertime.”

As you can see from the video below, Corgan — in town for a Pumpkins concert — lends backing vocals, strums very infrequently on an acoustic guitar and seems to be having a blast. He’s previously spoken about his love of The Alarm in the recent documentary about Peters called “Man in the Camo Jacket.”

This Corgan-aided performance of “Rain in the Summertime” comes three months after The Killers covered the song at a concert in Wales that was attended by a very surprised Peters.

The Alarm’s tour with Modern English and Gene Loves Jezebel resumes Tuesday night in Portland, Maine.

Below, check out fan-shot video of the Cleveland performance shot by David Lake of Blushift Productions (h/t Annie Zaleski) and some photos.
