Goo Goo Dolls Announce UK Tour For October 2016‏

Goo Goo Dolls — consisting of singer John Rzeznik and bassist Robby Takac — have already announced a summer headlining tour of amphitheaters and arenas in North America, and are now happy to announce their first UK tour since 2013.  The tour kicks off in Norwich on October 8th and finishes up at London Eventim Apollo on October 14th. Tickets go on sale at 10:00am on Friday 13th May priced £27.50 (except for London which is £29.50) plus booking fees at gigsandtours.com & ticketmaster.co.uk.

Boxes on CD and digital was released last week, with the vinyl coming on June 10th.  A vibrant and sonically forward-looking album, it retains what their legions of fans love about the Goo Goo Dolls — indelible melodies with intimate and heartfelt lyrics, whilst still pushing new boundaries in terms of sound and production. Singer and guitarist John Rzeznik enlisted some of his favourite songwriters and producers to collaborate with, including Gregg Wattenberg (with whom Rzeznik wrote four songs on the Goos’ 2013 album Magnetic), Wattenberg’s production partner Derek Fuhrmann, and Drew Pearson (who has worked with Phillip Phillips and OneRepublic).
