July 12th, 2021 (Buffalo, NY) - Today, Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling band Goo Goo Dolls have announced they will return home to Buffalo, NY for a momentous concert at KeyBank Center on Saturday, September 24th, 2022. Produced by New Day Live, general on-sale tickets will be available beginning this Friday, July 16th at 10AM Eastern Time. Ticket options will range from $29.50 to $99.50 and can be purchased via Ticket Master or the band’s website.
Said frontman John Rzeznik about the show, “it’s a dream come true for us to be able to return home and play the premiere venue in Buffalo, a city that’s always meant so much to us. We can’t wait to share such a special night with all of our hometown friends and family." Bassist & vocalist Robby Takac added, “it’s going to be great to be able to do a full scale summer show downtown again. It’s been way too long and it’s definitely time for something special like this again!”
The show will serve as a fitting finale to Goo Goo Dolls’ 2022 North American tour, which will see the band performing at notable outdoor venues throughout next summer.
With their highly anticipated thirteenth LP also on the horizon, Goo Goo Dolls recently released their brand new compilation album Rarities. The record is a retrospective collection of 20 songs spanning their career from 1995 to 2007; a prolific period during which the band released several chart-topping hits, ascended to mainstream stardom and cemented their footing as one of the most influential rock bands in recent memory.
ABOUT GOO GOO DOLLS:
Formed in Buffalo, NY during 1986 by John Rzeznik and Robby Takac, Goo Goo Dolls quietly broke 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 garnered four GRAMMY® Award nominations and seized a page in the history books by achieving 16 number one and Top 10 hits—"the most of any artist.” As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for “Most Top 10 Singles.” 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.” Thus far, A Boy Named Goo  went double-platinum, Dizzy Up The Girl went quadruple-platinum, and Gutterflower  and Let Love In  both went gold as Something for the Rest of Us  and Magnetic  bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. 2016’s Boxes attracted the praise of People and Huffington Post as Noisey, Consequence of Sound, and more featured them. Their music has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Leona Lewis. Among many accolades, John received the prestigious “Hal David Starlight Award” in 2008 as well.
Following a sold-out 2018 twentieth anniversary tour in celebration of Dizzy Up The Girl, Goo Goo Dolls wrote and recorded their twelfth full-length album, Miracle Pill [Warner Records]—igniting a bold and bright new era in the process. In fall 2020, the band began a new chapter with the release of their first-ever holiday record It’s Christmas All Over. With over 30 years together as a group, over 15 million albums sold, and 16 number one and Top 10 hits, Goo Goo Dolls remain at the top of their game and in a league of their own among rock bands.
