"After working on separate albums in the same studio all last year, John and I realized pretty quickly how much fun we’d have on tour together," O.A.R.'s Marc Roberge shared. "We’re all band guys, love being musicians, and started planning a special night that all our fans would enjoy."

"I’m so proud to finally be able to announce our summer tour with a great band and our friends O.A.R.," shared John Rzeznik, frontman of Goo Goo Dolls. "It’s going to be an amazing night of great music for everyone so be there!"
"When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.." Soon after the release of their 1998 7x Platinum hit single "Iris", the Goo Goo Dolls became a global nameplate as seriously talented alt-rockers. With humble beginnings as a cover band, the Goo Goo Dolls soon developed a punk-driven sound to their blend of alt-rock music. In 1995, they released their sophomore album "A Boy Named Goo", serving catchy rock anthems, becoming one of the mid-90s' most successful alt-rock records. The album features the band's first multi-platinum hit single "Name". From then on, the Goo Goo Dolls followed it up with a slew of globally-acclaimed alt-rock anthems in their succeeding albums. Their hit singles include "Slide", "Better Days", "Give a Little Bit", "Black Balloon", and "Iris".
O.A.R. rose to the scene for their highly acclaimed fifth album "Stories of a Stranger". The record features their hit singles "Love and Memories", "Heard the World", and "Lay Down". The band has released 10 studio albums and continues to be well-known for their tour and energetic shows as they continue to release their revolutionary rock records. Their new album "The Arcade" features the band's new singles "Alive" and "In the Clouds".
