New York veterans Goo Goo Dolls have announced a UK tour for this February, including a stop at Birmingham O2 Institute.

By Samuel Lambeth

The Buffalo rock legends are returning to this side of the pond in support of latest album Miracle Pill, released in summer 2018. Led by singer/guitarist Johnny Rzeznik and bassist/vocalist Robby Takac, the Goo Goos will bring their imitable brand of bittersweet rock to Birmingham’s O2 Institute on Tuesday 25th February.

Since forming in the late eighties, the band has enjoyed considerable success on both sides of the Atlantic. After a period of producing raw, ragged rock records, they smoothed their palette for 1998’s Dizzy Up the Girl. The result saw them achieve platinum sales across the globe, cementing their place as one of alternative rock’s most electrifying acts. The single ‘Iris’, taken from Dizzy…, remains a worldwide radio staple; currently, the track has nearly 550 million streams on Spotify.

Rzeznik and Takac have continued to release records at a steady rate, with Miracle Pill being their twelfth studio album. Live, the band are unsurprisingly polished but playful. Rzeznik remains an engaging frontman, while Takac scurries sprightly across the stage.

Not only that, but the alt-rock stalwarts have hooks to spare – along with ‘Iris’, you can be sure to hear their other barnstorming anthems, including ‘Here is Gone’, ‘Stay With You’ and ‘Name’.

***Translated from Hungarian***

Exclusive! Goo Goo Dolls Comments on!

The world star band is touring Europe soon, Robby Takac just gave us an interview.

Since last year's Sziget Festival concert, more and more people know that your grandfather is of Hungarian descent. Our whole country is proud of you! Did you ever come to Hungary when you were a child, or perhaps on holiday in Hungary?

It was the first time I had traveled to Hungary. Unfortunately, it was so short that I didn't really have a chance to explore much, but from the car I saw the palaces and the wonderful architecture that I only saw in the books as a child. We were in Eastern Europe for the first time and were impressed by the reception. By the way, my parents were in Hungary when I was a child, but I think I was always sent to Grandma for a week.

What information do you have about Hungary? Have you ever heard of our famous gastronomy, do you have any favorite food?

The paprika chicken and of course the goulash I know. I quit drinking a few years ago, and since then I have been passionate about exploring different cuisines and trying out a lot of wonderful food on our European tour.

Let's talk about your childhood. You grew up in Buffalo and that is very important to you. In some interviews I have seen you help the "artistic world" of the city. This mentality is very rare. Why is this relationship so important to you in your hometown?

I think if you know and listen to your voice, this should be used to help you do the good things that influence you as you grow up. Art gave me the feeling in my childhood that I had superpower. Everyone has to find this superpower inside!

What inspired you to be a bass player first? Who was your first favorite, your role model?

I was the youngest kid in the area, so that's why the older kids who had bands put me on bass. You know, like when the smallest kid in the area is going to be a goalkeeper all the time in football .... I just accepted the post because it was a great way to hang out with the older guys (and finally meet some girls!) become.

Your new album, Miracle Pill, is a really thoughtful album for me. In my opinion, every song is musically strong and the lyrics have a deep background. What songs do you think will become cult songs from the album, like Iris, Slide or my personal favorite, Here is gone?

Cult, huh? This sounds very flattering, but it also has a karmic responsibility! In fact, we only write songs that mean something to us, and we hope they resonate with others. So I think it will be up to the audience to decide.

Johnny said in several interviews that the new album focuses on human relationships and the issues raised by social media. Who do you think will understand your message better for adults or children / teenagers? What do you think of this accelerated, materialistic world we live in?

I think things are changing so fast these days that people don't take the time to experience the beauties of everyday life. No one stops smelling the roses today. You do not necessarily need to change just because our environment is changing or struggling to keep up with others who are also doing their own thing around you in their own way.

After all of the above, I have to ask what would you change at the moment in the music industry if you had the opportunity?

I would probably try to make the music more tangible again, instead of just being digitally broadcast over the air .... When music was actually and physically present in our world, it was treated with more respect.

You're absolutely right. Let's go back to the music! I would like to ask you, with such stunning discography, which 3 songs would you choose behind you that summarize your career? After 30 years, what's the secret to renewal?

Probably our first album, Dizzy Up The Girl, and our latest album, Miracle Pill, which can give everyone a great idea of ​​where we come from, where we are and where we are! I think we need to be open to new trends, not exclude them, and boldly draw on them. John is always very active in following these musical innovations and this is a huge help in our development.

9. Last but not least, you are currently touring in the US and then going to the UK. Are you planning some concerts in Europe or are you just concentrating on summer festivals? What are your future plans for 2020?

We will come back sooooooooooooon !!!!!!!!!!

The interview was conducted by Lazár Lobó-Szalóky


How the hell did Rebel Beat make it back into the set  :( :o :(

Think this confirms I'll be skipping the UK tour. Don't they get bored playing identical sets 100 times a year?

Jesus. I'll save my money and go and see Pearl Jam in the summer

"The Goo Goo Dolls are about to begin the UK leg of their “Miracle Pill Tour” in February. They recently announced that they will be bringing along special guest Valeras Band. That leg of the tour will kick off on February 19 in Glasgow, United Kingdom. 
But for now, let’s talk about their show they had last night (January 29) in Hollywood, Florida at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in promotion of Miracle Pill.
The band played an 18-song set jam-packed with some of their best songs. The set included classics such as “Name,” “Iris” and “Slide” as well as tracks off of their latest album Miracle Pill such as “Indestructible,” “Life’s a Message” and “Autumn Leaves.”   
They opened with “Indestructible” off of their latest album and closed with one of their most popular songs “Iris.” Weaved in between these two were tons of other great career-sprawling Goo Goo Dolls tracks.   

Fans on Twitter have also been raving about last night shows and posting tons of images from it as well. One fan tweeted, “Great show last night @googoodolls at the @HardRockHolly!!!”   

There has also been talk all over Twitter and Instagram since the band released a music video for one of their newer songs “Lost” off of their Miracle Pill album. This song was not included in last night’s set so we will have to wait and see if it gets added on to their UK set." 

Make sure to check out the Goo Goo Dolls official website to get your tickets for their UK tour before they are sold out!

Goo Goo Dolls Interview
By Gus

Click through for video interview:

One of the hardest working bands in music is Buffalo’s own the Goo Goo Dolls. The band just released their 12th studio record titled “Miracle Pill just a few months ago.” It’s a very solid record from start to finish. Just this past weekend, there was a private event held in Niagara Falls, NY and the Goo Goo Dolls were a big part of it. Before this event, we grabbed both Johnny Rzeznik and Robby Takac before this event to talk about the great new record “Miracle Pill.” Johnny recently did a special appearance at the Taylor booth at this years NAMM trade-show. We bring that up along with his new signature guitar that will be coming out via Rock N’ Roll Relics in the near future.  What will the Goo Goo Dolls be doing this summer? In less than 2 weeks there will be an announcement of all the details on the bands summer tour. Of course what is an interview with the Goo’s without bringing up Buffalo, NY?  We jump in various topics that are happening around the city right now and both Johnny and Robby give their take on various topics.

In addition, both Johnny and Robby are are dads to young girls. Do they share dad secrets? You’ll find out in this very laid back candid interview with fellow Buffalonians the Goo Goo Dolls.

Photos by Joe Saccomanno. We would like thank Steve Masi from GRNDVW for setting up the interview with the Goo Goo Dolls. For more information on the Goo Goo Dolls including the new album “Miracle Pill,” please go to: Goo Goo Dolls.
