Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated bands Goo Goo Dolls and Daughtry will hit the road in June for an extensive summer amphitheatre and arena tour. Also on the bill, performing an acoustic set, are Plain White T’s. The tour kicks off in Wallingford, CT, on June 12th and crisscrosses North America through the end of the summer.
“We are excited to finally be teaming up with Daughtry,” says Goos vocalist-guitarist John Rzeznik. “Not only are we big fans of Chris, but we think this is going to be a huge party for the fans of both our bands. The combination of the two will make for an awesome summer night of great American rock music.”
“We are huge fans of the Goo Goo Dolls and have wanted to tour with them for a long time now,” says lead singer Chris Daughtry. “Everyone will see more than two great bands on stage. They’re going to get an incredible show every night and have a summer to remember.”
The Goos are touring in support of their 10th studio album Magnetic, which debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and at No. 2 on the Top Rock Albums chart, propelled by the red-hot single “Come To Me” – the fastest-growing single in the Goos’ history.
Daughtry is touring in support of their fourth album Baptized, which was released on November 19th, 2013, and debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200. Daughtry’s latest single, “Waiting For Superman,” is Top 15 at Hot AC and has sold more than half a million downloads. The band is currently on a European and sold-out U.K. tour.
