Goo Goo Dolls announce a season of televisionby jmaloni
Goo Goo Dolls fans are in for an exciting holiday season.
The Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum band performed their new single "Come To Me" last Thursday on "The Tonight Show," and will be performing it in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which airs live at 9 a.m. on CBS Nov. 28. They will also play during the Hollywood Christmas Parade on Dec. 1, which premieres on the Hallmark Channel Dec. 11. It re-airs on Hallmark Movie Channel Dec. 20 and 24. More than 350 stations will broadcast the parade on Dec. 20, and it will also air to 1 million-plus American servicemen and women worldwide on American Forces Television Network. Additionally, the Goo Goo Dolls will perform "Come To Me" on "LIVE with Kelly and Michael" Dec. 3.
On Dec. 4, the Buffalo trio will perform at the "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" tree lighting, which airs at 8 p.m. on NBC, with an additional live hour of the special broadcast airing via local NBC affiliates in New York City and elsewhere at 7 p.m. "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" also features Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkson and Mary J Blige, among others, and is hosted by "Today" anchors Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales.
"Come To Me," off the band's 10th studio album, "Magnetic," is currently climbing up the Top 20 at radio and on the air in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, D.C., Atlanta, Boston, Seattle and many more.
"Magnetic" was released June 11 and debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. The Buffalo trio celebrated the album's release with a performance on "Good Morning America." They have recently appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "CBS Saturday Morning," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and "Rachael Ray." On the heels of a hugely successful summer-long co-headline tour with Matchbox 20, the Goo Goo Dolls headlined a run in the UK. They will rejoin Matchbox 20 for a very special three-day cruise Dec. 6-9 before hitting the road in the U.S. again early next year.
The Goo Goo Dolls have sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, with 14 Top 10 radio hits, more than any other artist in the history of the Hot AC format. They are the only artist to have three songs on Billboard's "Top 100 Songs from 1992-2012," including the No. 1 slot for "Iris." John Rzeznik has been honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award, and the band has been inducted into Guitar Center's Historic Hollywood Rock Walk.
