If Shirley Manson is really only happy when it rains, she'll probably be disappointed to play the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Oct. 10.

Manson and her alternative band Garbage have been together for 20 years after Butch Vig, Duke Erikson and Steve Marker brought the Scottish singer on board.

The band's self-titled debut album sold more than 4 million copies and brought with it platinum status with two hits, "Stupid Girl" and "Only Happy When It Rains."

But it was a rough road for the band after that initial success. In the midst of producing their fourth album, "Bleed Like Me," in 2005, band members went on a break to work on solo projects.

They briefly got back together to record a greatest hits album and then reunited in 2011 to release their fifth album "Not Your Kind of People."

The band's latest song, "The Chemicals," features vocals from the Silversun Pickups' Brian Aubert.

Singer Torres opens the fall show.

Tickets start at $40 and go on sale Friday.
