John Rzeznik of The Goo Goo Dolls

GOO GOO DOLLS have extended their American tour with dates that will take the band across the U.S. through late August including cities that they have not played in some time.  The band’s current album, SOMETHING FOR THE REST OF US, continues to garner global critical praise:

“’Something For The Rest of Us’ flows with emotional rock anthems” – USA Today

“Anthemic rock really doesn’t come much better than that of the Goo Goo Dolls.  Twelve soaring radio anthems to make you smile” – KERRANG! (U.K.)

“’Something For The Rest of Us’ displays both emotional and musical heft and dynamic ebbs and flows” – Billboard

More than ever, the songs of John Rzeznik seem to resonate deeply into the common consciousness of us all reflecting the universal emotional fallout of our times in song.  It’s no wonder the GOOS have broken the record for The Most Top 10 or higher Hits in Radio History, per Billboard Magazine.
