The Smashing Pumpkins setup was pretty amazing. They had this gigantic white ball (think Rover from the Prisoner only one hundred time its size and you get the idea) with video and images projected on it. The imagery matched their song, and visually really cool to watch.

It was fairly disappointing because I was waiting for "1979", which never came. Of course, they did their 'rat in a cage' song, "Bullet With Butterfly Wings," which the crowd absolutely went nuts over.
I think if you love Oceania, you'll definitely want to get a ticket to hear all the songs live. Unfortunately, if you didn't bother with the new album, then suddenly it's the world's most expensive listening party.
Smashing Pumpkins is currently on tour in support of Oceania.
