Not only were the Goo Goo Dolls an iconic alt rock band in the 90s, but their hit sound is also entertaining audiences on new albums and renowned tour dates. The Goo Goo Dolls entered the mainstream with their album, Dizzy Up the Girl, the singles from which became huge mainstays on the radio. After four years without releasing an album, the Goo Goo Dolls released Something for the Rest of Us in 2010, to the delight of fans around the world. The band is giving its fans even more Goo Goo Dolls this summer as they travel the US on 2011 tour dates.
Initially called The Sex Maggots, the Goo Goo Dolls was formed when friends George Tutuska and Robby Takac met John Rzeznik when he was playing in a band with Takac's cousin. Initially, Takac was the lead singer as Rzeznik was too shy and they released three albums before the widely noticed Superstar Car Wash in 1993. With the release of the album, Rzeznik officially became the lead singer and the band shed their metal/punk sound in exchange for an alt/college rock style. Unfortunately for drummer George Tutuska, he was replaced by Mike Malinin shortly before their 1995 record, A Boy Named Goo, was released. While the album's success paled in comparison to what the Goo Goo Dolls would soon experience, it did go double platinum and allowed the band to play extensive tour dates.
Dizzy Up the Girl became the Goo Goo Dolls breakthrough album and featured their earlier hit single and soundtrack contribution, "Iris." The album's singles topped the charts and experienced heavy rotation on the radio, the album itself eventually going triple platinum. The Goo Goo Dolls' next two albums -- Gutterflower and Let Love In -- experienced almost similar success as the band continued to dominate the alt rock scene. For the next few years, the Goo Goo Dolls played tour dates, on talk shows, and on soundtracks until the release of Something For the Rest of Us in 2010. John Rzeznik has stated that fans won't have to wait as long for another new album, as he is already working on new material.
In honor of their return to the public eye, the Goo Goo Dolls are headed out on 2011 US tour dates this summer, beginning at the Summer Celebration in Muskegon, MI on July 7. Their concert schedule will cover most of the country and will include a number of smaller music festival performances. The Goo Goo Dolls' summer tour dates in 2011 will end at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on August 27, so buy your tickets soon.
