Cleveland's Music Headliner

Goo Goo Dolls

Formed by John Rzeznik and Robby Takac in Buffalo, NY during 1986, Goo Goo Dolls have quietly broken records, contributed a string of staples to the American songbook, connected to millions of fans, and indelibly impacted popular music for three-plus decades. Beyond selling 15 million records worldwide, the group has garnered four GRAMMY® Award nominations and nearly a dozen platinum & gold singles combined and seized a page in the history books by achieving 16 number one and Top 10 hits. As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for “Most Top 10 Singles.” 

Having been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Phoebe Bridgers & Maggie Rogers, their music continues to reach new audiences around the world and rack up platinum & gold statuses – including the recently double-platinum-certified “Name,” platinum-certified “Slide”, “Black Balloon” and “Better Days” and gold-certified “Here Is Gone,” “Sympathy,” “Let Love In,” and “Come To Me.” Thus far, ‘A Boy Named Goo‘ [1995] has gone double-platinum, ‘Dizzy Up The Girl‘five-times-platinum, and ‘Gutterflower‘ [2002] and ‘Let Love In‘ [2006] both went gold as ‘Something for the Rest of Us‘ [2010] and ‘Magnetic’ [2013] bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. 

Among a string of hits, “Iris” clutched #1 on the Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and would be named “#1 Top 40 Song of the Last 20 Years.” On the heels of going viral online earlier this year, the track recently achieved an astounding seven-times-platinum status and re-entered the Billboard charts, yet again proving the timelessness of Goo Goo Dolls’ illustrious catalog.

 Goo Goo Dolls have announced their brand new thirteenth studio LP ‘Chaos in Bloom,’ arriving August 12th, 2022 via Warner Records. Marking the first album of their career to be produced by frontman John Rzeznik, the record finds the band at the top of their game and continuing to constantly evolve just as they have for nearly four decades together. Consisting of 10 tracks, Chaos in Bloom is an album of biting sarcasm, stadium-ready choruses, and the type of spear-sharp songwriting that’s led them to becoming one of the most influential alternative rock groups of all time.

While Chaos in Bloom isn’t necessarily an album borne out by the pandemic, many of the tracks reflect on all of the things in daily life that became amplified while everyone was isolated from one another and sequestered at home. “Chaos in Bloom reminded us how special this whole thing is and to cherish the relationships that we have together,” says Rzeznik about the album. “Where we’ve been, and where we’re going.” Oscillating from personal reflections on the state of the world to societal commentaries, the songs on the album grapple with observations about our dystopian modernity while searching for optimism and pushing for a more empathetic world. “I’ve been trying to have a relationship with the bigger picture,” adds bassist and songwriter Robby Takac, “and refining happiness and what it means from that perspective.”

Support act Blue October has had seventeen Top 40 singles on the alternative rock chart over their past eight studio albums, and are best known for their platinum singles “Hate Me” and “Into the Ocean” from their 2006 platinum album ‘Foiled.’

Blue October started 2020 with the release of a new single called “Oh My My” on February 28—exactly two years after the release of “I Hope You’re Happy”. The single is taken from the band’s 2020 album, ‘This Is What I Live For.’

Frontman Justin Furstenfeld performed other songs off the album, such as “The Weatherman”, “Fight For Love”, and “Only Lost is Found”, acoustically at his solo Open Book shows or for radio promotional appearances. Recorded in the winter of 2019–2020, the album was released on October 23, 2020
