Followed by Goo Goo Dolls’ debut TV performance of new single, ‘Run All Night,’ on GMA3
√ Special 25th anniversary edition vinyl pressing of band’s iconic album, ‘Dizzy Up The Girl,’ to arrive Sept. 15
Today, multi-Platinum, four-time Grammy-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls and O.A.R. frontman Marc Roberge took to the stage on “Good Morning America” on ABC for a live performance of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” Having teamed up to record a soaring cover version of the song earlier this spring, the appearance arrives just ahead of both bands hitting the road on “The Big Night Out Tour,” which kicks off July 24 in Clearwater, Florida. Goo Goo Dolls also delivered a second performance on “GMA3,” making the live television debut of their brand-new single, “Run All Night,” an uplifting ballad about escaping from your circumstances and finding hope in the unknown.
In tandem with the live performances, Goo Goo Dolls have also announced a special-edition vinyl of the “Dizzy Up The Girl” that will arrive on Sept. 15. Limited-run and pressed on metallic silver ice vinyl, the release celebrates the 25th anniversary of the iconic album that was first released on Sept. 22, 1998, via Warner Bros. Records. “Dizzy Up The Girl” is a record that catapulted the band into mainstream success and was cemented as one of the most indelible alt-rock records in recent memory. Featuring songs such as “Iris” (three Grammy nominations, Certified Septuple Platinum, over 1 billion Spotify streams), “Slide” (Certified Platinum, 240 million Spotify streams) and “Black Balloon” (Certified Platinum, 65 million Spotify streams), the album has sold over 6 million copies worldwide, had five top 10 singles and has since gone five-times-Platinum in the U.S. Preorder the 25th anniversary edition of “Dizzy Up The Girl” here.
“The Big Night Out Tour,” traveling from coast to coast throughout the summer, features O.A.R. as the special guests throughout the entire first leg, with Fitz and the Tantrums supporting on the second leg this September. The sprawling North American run will see Goo Goo Dolls delivering career-encompassing sets that feature “Run All Night” and “I Won’t Back Down,” as well as songs from their recent album, “Chaos in Bloom,” and other hits from their complete discography, including the record-smashing hit “Iris.”
The band will be partnering with Joe Torre Safe At Home for the tour, a nonprofit founded in 2002 by Ali and Joe Torre to provide healing and education services to youth who have been traumatized by exposure to violence including domestic violence, child abuse, teen dating abuse, and sexual assault to help break the cycle of violence.
