Goo Goo Dolls announce immersive livestream concert

Event is in partnership with Fantracks

Goo Goo Dolls have announced an immersive livestream concert in partnership with the livestreaming music platform FanTracks. Set for Saturday, October 24th at 9 pm ET, the band will deliver a completely live performance in full-scale production featuring hits from across their iconic catalog. Fans from around the world will also have access to multi-camera viewing and the ability to visit a virtual merch booth and purchase meet & greet and VIP packages for the show, giving them the complete experience of a rock concert from the comfort of their own home.

Inner Machine, The Official Goo Goo Dolls Fan Club, will have exclusive pre-sale access to tickets beginning Thursday, October 15th at 10 am ET, while general on-sale begins this Friday, October 16th at 10 am ET.

Barry Summers, President/Executive Producer of FanTracks says, “Everyone knows that the Goo Goo Dolls are one of the best live bands ever. In a time when fans are unable to see and participate in live music, this partnership represents the best of what can happen when ground-breaking technology meets accomplished talent.”

This concert will be followed in December by It’s Christmas All Over, the first-ever, Augmented Reality Movie Musical, produced and directed by Barry Summers. Goo Goo Dolls will play songs from their forthcoming first-ever holiday record It’s Christmas All Over. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

Created during lockdown this year and produced by frontman John Rzeznik alongside the band’s frequent collaborators Brad Fernquist and Jimmy McGorman, It’s Christmas All Over arrives on October 30th via Warner Records and boasts a diverse collection of songs that capture the warmth and spirit of classic Christmas music. In addition to cover renditions of tracks such as “Let It Snow” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” the project will feature several rarities, a jazz-infused medley finale and two brand new original holiday songs including the debut single “This is Christmas.” Exclusive merch offerings including a red vinyl LP, a Goo Goo Dolls Crosley record player and additional limited edition items that are perfect for the holidays.

It’s Christmas All Over comes on the heels of the deluxe edition release of the band’s acclaimed 12th studio record Miracle Pill, a special release boasting the trio of never-before-heard tracks “Just A Man”, “The Right Track” and “Tonight, Together.” Goo Goo Dolls are currently in the studio working on another album of new material and will also be hitting the road for an expansive North American tour in summer of 2021. Kicking off on July 22, 2021 in Boise, ID at Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater, the nationwide tour will visit numerous amphitheaters throughout the US and Canada such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
