Watch: Billy Corgan joins The Alarm for ‘Rain in the Summertime’ in Cleveland

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.

    Did Billy get permission from his guru Alex Jones? Yep, a whack job conspiracy theorist. Lovely
