Recorded following the death of Billy Corgan's mother, and in the wake of his divorce, 1998's Adore represented a significant change of style from the Smashing Pumpkins' previous guitar-based rock, veering into electronica. The record, cut with assistance from drum machines and studio drummers including Matt Walker from Filter, was infused with a darker aesthetic than much of the band's earlier work. The group also modified its public image, shedding its alternative rock look for a more subdued appearance. Although Adore received favourable reviews and was nominated for Best Alternative Performance at the Grammy Awards, the album had only sold about 830,000 copies in the United States by the end of the year. It nonetheless sold three times as many copies overseas.

The band began a seventeen-date, fifteen-city charity North American tour in support of Adore. At each stop on such, the band donated 100 percent of tickets sales to a local charity organization. The Pumpkins also played 14 dates overseas and in Canada, one of which, on 19th of July, was at the Chum City Building in Toronto, the headquarters of Bell Media.

This Double LP features the full show the Smashing Pumpkins performed at this venue on the date in question, where they put on an extraordinary gig, including cuts from the new record alongside a host of tracks from previous albums.
