In 1995, the rapidly ascending three-piece travelled to New York City for CMJ Music Marathon. On the eve of what would be their biggest show in New York at that time, the band delivered a stripped-down soundcheck performance for Tom Calderone’s radio station “Dare to be Different” on 92.7 FM, which was mixed and recorded by legendary producer Jerry Finn (Blink-182, The Offspring). Not only was it the first time the trio had ever recorded a live show but it was their debut acoustic performance in front of a live audience. Both the soundcheck performance and the band’s subsequent show at The Academy the following night captured a special moment in their blossoming career.
Goo Goo Dolls are also set to release a special edition vinyl of their iconic album Dizzy Up The Girl on September 15th. The limited-edition reissue will be pressed on metallic silver ice vinyl, celebrating the album’s 25th anniversary – it was first released on September 22, 1998 via Warner Records. Dizzy Up The Girl catapulted the band into mainstream success, selling over 6 million copies worldwide, featuring 5 top 10 singles and has since gone 5x platinum in the U.S. The album features hit songs such as “Iris” (4 GRAMMY nominations), Certified Septuple Platinum, over 1 billion Spotify Streams), “Slide” (Certified Platinum, 240 million Spotify Streams) and “Black Balloon” (Certified Platinum, 65 million Spotify Streams). Fans can pre-order the 25th Anniversary Edition HERE.
Following their 9 sold-out UK shows in June this year, the band continues The Big Night Out Tour during September in the U.S., which sees them deliver career-encompassing sets that feature songs from their recent album Chaos in Bloom and other hits from their back catalogue.
In July, just ahead of their run of summer dates, Goo Goo Dolls and O.A.R. frontman Marc Roberge took to the stage on ABC’s Good Morning America for a performance of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” The band also delivered a second performance on GMA3, marking the television debut of their new single “Run All Night,” an uplifting ballad about escaping from your circumstances and finding hope in the unknown.
