Lollapalooza 1994 was the fourth annual Lollapalooza festival and part of The Smashing Pumpkins' larger Rock Invasion tour. The band had the headlining spot. Originally Nirvana was scheduled to headline, reportedly being offered nearly $10 million to do it.[1] However, Cobain turned it down, and the band officially dropped out of the festival on April 7, 1994. Kurt Cobain's body was discovered in Seattle the next day. Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, made guest appearances at several shows, usually taking time from The Smashing Pumpkins given to her by Billy Corgan, including the Philadelphia show at FDR Park.[2]

Despite the added pressure on the Pumpkins following Nirvana's backing out of the festival and Cobain's subsequent death, Lollapalooza 1994 turned out to be one of the festival's most successful years, and reassured the Pumpkins' leadership in the rock scene.[3]
