The Smashing Pumpkins were performing at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis this past April 24 when a member of the audience thought it would be a good idea to hop onstage.

The band was in the middle of playing the Rolling Stones’ “Angie” when the man joined the group, climbing onto the stage right next to Corgan and bopping his head along in time to the music.

Corgan didn’t even bother to look at the guy. Take a look at how he handled the situation. It begins about 50 seconds into the video.
