Goo Goo Dolls with Daughtry
Please Note: This event is from 2014.
The Goo Goo Dolls will perform live at the St. Augustine Amphitheater with Daughtry. The popular band the Plain White T’s will open the show. This exciting concert will feature Goo Goo Dolls’ classics such as “Iris”, as well as some of their new hits.
The Goo Goo Dolls' original lineup consisted of John Rzeznik on guitar and vocals, Robby Takac on bass and vocals, and George Tutuska on drums and percussion. The group assembled in Buffalo, New York in 1986 and made their first, self-titled record in 1987 on Mercury Records.
Rzeznik was not lead vocals on the first two albums, but became more comfortable with leading the band and was featured as the lead vocalist on five tracks on their third album, Hold Me Up in 1990. Hold Me Up and their fourth album, Superstar Car Wash, 1993, received more media and popular acclaim. Both received heavy airtime on college radio stations.
A Boy Named Goo, the band’s fifth album became their first album to achieve double-platinum status. The undisputed success of "Name" marked a change in the band's sound from alternative rock to a more mainstream adult orientated rock (AOR) direction which disappointed many of the original fans of the band.
Rzeznik was approached to write a song for the City of Angels movie soundtrack and the end result was “Iris”, the song that would catapult the band into super stardom. The song stayed on top of Billboard Hot 100 Airplay charts for an astounding 18 weeks, and was nominated for three Grammys that year. "Iris" was included on the triple-platinum Dizzy Up the Girl, and was among top-ten hits "Slide", "Black Balloon", "Broadway", and "Dizzy" from the same album.
In 2006, the Goo Goo Dolls marked their 20th anniversary with their new album Let Love In, which included the studio recording of "Give a Little Bit" as well as other top 10 radio singles "Better Days," "Stay With You," and "Let Love In.” Their latest album Magnetic was released on June 11, 2013 and debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. It was their 4th album in a row that debuted in the Top 10. The Goo Goo Dolls continue to tour, and write and perform award-winning music.
Daughtry was formed in 2005 and is fronted by Chris Daughtry, the fourth-place finisher of the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006. The album reached number one on the Billboard 200 and went on to sell more than four million copies in the United States, making it quadruple platinum certified by the RIAA. The band's second album, Leave This Town, was released in July 2009 and it also debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.
