Goo Goo Dolls Plot ‘Big Night Out’ Summer Tour With O.A.R.
Fans of alt-rock legends Goo Goo Dolls will soon get to see their favorite band on tour — and also see O.A.R join them as a supporting act. On Monday, the rock bands announced a massive summer tour starting in July 2023.
“I’m so proud to finally be able to announce our summer tour with a great band and our friends O.A.R.” said John Rzeznik in a press release. “It’s going to be an amazing night of great music for everyone so be there!!!”

The bands will kick off their tour in Florida at Tampa’s Coachman Park before making stops through New York, Pennsylvania, and Colorado, before ending their run in Southern California.
“After working on separate albums in the same studio all last year, John and I realized pretty quickly how much fun we’d have on tour together,” said O.A.R.’s Marc Roberge. “We’re all band guys, love being musicians, and started planning a special night that all our fans would enjoy.”
With the new tour, Goo Goo Dolls will partner with Joe Torre Safe at Home, a nonprofit that provides healing and education services for children who’ve survived domestic violence and child abuse. Rzeznik’s band went on tour this year to support their 2021 LP Rarities.
The summer tour will support Goo Goo Dolls’ 2022 LP Chaos In Bloom, which was led by songs such as “Yeah, I Like You,” “You Are the Answer,” and “Going Crazy.” O.A.R. also dropped the album, The Arcade, earlier this year, featuring songs such as “In the Clouds” and “Alive.”
Rzeznik — who joined Demi Lovato for a performance of GGD’s hit “Iris” in October — will also perform an acoustic set at iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles on Dec. 13.
