Buffalo’s own Goo Goo Dolls will join Matchbox Twenty and special guest Kate Earl in concert at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25, at Budweiser Gardens in nearby London, Ontario.
The Goo Goo Dolls new album, “Magnetic,” was released on May 7, with the debut single “Rebel Beat” currently climbing the charts. The trio — singer guitarist John Rzeznik, bassist Robby Takac and drummer Mike Malinin — recorded Magnetic in New York, London and L.A. with Gregg Wattenberg (Train), Rob Cavallo (Green Day), John Shanks (Bon Jovi) and Greg Wells (Katy Perry). Magnetic is the tenth studio release for the Goo Goo Dolls, who have become one of the most globally respected and influential forces in popular music history.
Matchbox Twenty is currently in the midst of their sold-out North American tour, following a sold-out Australian leg, celebrating last year’s blockbuster album “North.” The album exploded into the #1 position on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 after its first week in release. Fueled by critical acclaim — as well as the hit singles “She’s So Mean” and “Overjoyed” — the album’s unprecedented success marked the band’s first-ever chart-topper and #1 debut.
