Private upstairs concert organized by STAR 102.5, downstairs tables open to public

The Goo Goo Dolls will play a private concert on the second floor at (716) Food and Sport at 3 p.m. Monday, May 9. The small, intimate gathering is presented by STAR 102.5, exclusively for on-air contest winners.

"In addition to the numerous sporting events at (716), we have recently begun hosting some special concert events, together with STAR 102.5," said Dominic Verni, HARBORCENTER's vice president of food and beverage. "These one-of-a-kind gatherings give STAR listeners a chance to interact with famous musical acts in an intimate setting at (716). We were pleased to host Rob Thomas last September and are thrilled to continue the series with Buffalo's own Goo Goo Dolls!"

The multiplatinum, Grammy-nominated Goo Goo Dolls will play a private set for a small audience of STAR contest winners, followed by a Q&A period on (716)'s second floor. The first floor of (716) Food and Sport will continue normal business operation, where guests will be able to hear the concert over the restaurant's in-house audio system. Guests are invited to make reservations for first floor tables online at www.716FoodandSport.com.

The Goo Goo Dolls are one of the most globally respected and influential forces in popular music, selling more than 10 million albums since 1986. They have scored 14 top 10 radio hits (more than any other artist in the history of the Hot AC format), including "Name," "Slide" and "Iris" (the latter spending nearly 12 straight months on the Billboard charts and holding the No. 1 position for 17 consecutive weeks).
