The 2023 season at the Maine Savings Amphitheater closed out with a bang on Friday with a double header concert featuring the Goo Goo Dolls and Fitz and the Tantrums.
The Goo Goo Dolls are no strangers to Bangor, having played in the city three times before, in 2006, 2010 and 2019. On Friday, the band played a set full of hits from their nearly three decades in rock radio, with songs including “Iris,” “Slide” and “Name.”
Fitz and the Tantrums are best known for their 2016 hit “Hand Clap,” and have amassed a large fanbase for its blend of indie-pop and soul music over the past decade.
Friday’s concert ended the 2023 outdoor concert season in Bangor, one of the busiest in Waterfront Concerts history. No shows for 2024 have been announced yet, but the concert promotion company said fans can expect the first announcements later on in the fall.
