The alternative rock superstars the Goo Goo Dolls will appear in concert at Frostburg State University’s Cordts Physical Education Center Main Arena on Sunday, April 22, at 8 p.m. Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. Monday, Feb. 19, at the FSU Lane University Center Box Office and online at http://ces.frostburg.edu.
Best known for their chart-topping hits “Name,” “Iris,” “Slide” and “Here is Gone,” the Goo Goo Dolls are on tour to promote their eighth album, “Let Love In,” the result of a return to their Buffalo, N.Y., roots. Founding members John Rzeznik and Robby Takak left Buffalo for Los Angeles, but Rzeznik failed to find much inspiration in L.A. He decided to back up and head back East, meeting bandmates Takac and drummer Mike Malinin in Buffalo to set up shop in a 100-year-old Masonic Ballroom.
Once again, Goo Goo Dolls will support the USA Harvest organization along the tour by collecting food for distribution in each city, which in turn is distributed on the same night in every city they play. To date, the Goos have collected millions of meals for people in need. The band continues to urge fans attending the shows to bring canned food to the Cordts Center and drop it off at the collection points at the entrance.
Tickets cost $65, $55 and $36, with $18 bleacher seats available to FSU students. For more information, call the Lane University Center Box Office Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 301-687-3137 or toll-free at 1-866-TIXX-CES or online at http://ces.frostburg.edu.
