Fans of the American rock band Goo Goo Dolls will definitely be ecstatic as the band announced that it will be hopping on the bandwagon for a 2022 summer tour.
Goo Goo Dolls has been around the alternative rock music scene since 1986 as a cover band. They eventually developed a punk sound and released some original materials in the early 90s. Led by guitarist/vocalist John Rzeznik, bassist/vocalist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska, the band started to enjoy mainstream success in 1995 when their breakthrough single, "Name," topped charts and became a massive hit worldwide.
For most people, the band is renowned for its biggest hit, "Iris," released in 1998. After spending a year on the Billboard charts and holding the number one position on the Hot 100 Airplay chart for 18 weeks, Iris became the band's biggest hit. In October 2012, "Iris" was ranked #1 on Billboard's "Top 100 Pop Songs 1992–2012" chart.
All in all, the band has had 19 top ten singles on various charts, has sold 15 million records worldwide, and has been nominated for four Grammy Awards.

The band is originally scheduled for 2020, but, like most artists, the pandemic prevented them from successfully staging the highly-anticipated tour.
