Goo Goo Dolls Announce Major Summer Trek

Goo Goo Dolls have just rolled out a 32-date summer tour with O.A.R. serving as their opening act. The band will be on the road in support of its latest album, Chaos In Bloom. The summer run kicks off on June 24th at Tampa, Florida’s Coachman Park and eventually winds down on September 7th at Highland, California’s Yaamava’ Theater.

Frontman John Rzeznik said in a statement, “I’m so proud to finally be able to announce our summer tour with a great band and our friends O.A.R. It’s going to be an amazing night of great music for everyone so be there!!!”

Rolling Stone reported, “With the new tour, Goo Goo Dolls will partner with Joe Torre Safe At Home, a nonprofit that provides healing and education services for children who’ve survived domestic violence and child abuse.”

John Rzeznik told us that one of the highlights of any show is the chance to connect with the band’s original fans: “Everybody that came up with us came just as slow. So, it was no big shock. The people that were with us in the beginning, a lot of times, if they still show up, I mean we’ll still talk to them and that just because they’ve realized that we haven’t changed that much, maybe a little more sober. That’s about it.”
