Great show featuring many deep cuts, although the video portion opening up after a short
break could have been left out. I've seen this band over 50 times, and they are great live

SMALL BASS LUCKY TO HAVE THE BIG FISH
Great show. Boys opened up right on time and were tight as ever.
John's voice was perfect. Great showmanship!

GOO GOO DOLLS - TUCSON
The Goo Goo Dolls proved that they just may be the reigning supreme rock band today. Too bad it was on a Wednesday night instead of Fri/Sat so I could have indulged in a few more drinks. They are very tight, only achieved by playing together for so long. Great concert, every was dancing and singing along to every song.

LOVED IT ALL!
I can’t believe the lead singer is almost 60! Amazing show
Joanna Rubino from Jacksonville, Florida
SAW THE GOO GOO DOLLS IN CLEARWATER. THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC FROM BEGINNING TO END. O A R STARTED THE CONCERT AND THEY WERE PHENOMENAL AS WELL. WE HAD VIP TREATMENT AND MEET AND GREET PASSES. THANK YOU TO THE PRODUCTION MANAGER AND THE MANAGER
Loved the Goo Goo Dolls. They were fantastic. Had some rain delays but it didn't matter because they rocked it from beginning to end. Oar opened up and they were phenomenal as well. Robbie was smiling to do at the entire concert. So happy to see such a big crowd. Johnny you still have it!

AUTHENTIC SONG WRITERS THE REAL DEAL AND THE DOLLS DELIVERED
Exceptional performance by Goo Goo Dolls- Atlantic City, NJ August 11th. I couldn’t have asked for a better show! It was The Dolls at their best. Intimate jam! My interpretation of the band is- they make music, write amazing songs and rock out like they’re in a basement jam session. I felt this was a jam session and we all were in a basement studio rocking to tunes like it was all about the music. This is what is appealing about Goo Goo Dolls. They’re famous for their craft. Writing songs we love to sing along with and feel something in our soul. John and Robbie are (in my opinion) guys that want to make music and share it with us. I have seen the Dolls in 2005 and PNC Arts Center. I felt this AC show was incredibly real music jam without the over the top BS. Musicians provide a show about the music. The Dolls delivered! I flew up from Melbourne, Fla to see the show.
Only thing I can think of that would top AC - they dragged their gear to MLB Airport and did jam in our airport at DAL
Maya The Service Dog from Princeton, NJ
Event center perfect sizzle for a show of the Goo magnitude. Crowd was mixed ages with younger kiddos all the way up to the fans on life support.
It was a good time. Small concert venue provided excellent views for all seating. OAR and GooGoo Dolls together was a great double feature!
The complaints are from people who apparently haven’t broken their foot before! It takes 6 weeks in a boot to heal. Add the muscle atrophy and it’s a miserable experience to recover from. Imagine having a tour in progress while in treatment for a broken foot? Props to the band for thinking of their fans enjoyment. Clearly these guys put their fans first and that’s something to consider prior to complaining about the show. The other option was no show.
Thank you Goo Goo Dolls and The Borgata for another amazing visit! The set list was stellar and the music was on point. My tail wagged and I had a blast

GREAT BAND, LOUSY VENUE
Big fans of the Goos. Didn’t realize they were in town until 2 days ago. Bought 2 GA tickets for what seemed a reasonable price- then added on 30.00 in fees and another 30.00 for parking. Then 60.00 for 2 hamburgers/fries/cokes. Such bullshit.
OAR opened and some of their songs we liked but others were annoying- to many trumpet solos, barf. Just not our thing but they were talented. Pretty loud but well mixed.
The Goos came on and unfortunately, we were towards the back and as everyone stood up, we could see the top of the keyboardist and drummers head. And the video that wasn’t showing the band but videos to enhance the songs. SO MANY watched the entire show through their phones. It was odd to see people filming what they couldn’t see… weird. A guy and his wife behind us had their phones on their laps the entire time. He NEVER looked up. Playing a game? Porn surfing? Others around us just wanted to talk and take selfies all night. Only reacted to the hits. I hate concerts in the 21st century. Rant over.
Johnny had a cold but you’d never k ow it except for the time he mentioned it. His voice sounded great. Robbie was Robbie. The bass was way down in the mix. Coulda used more. It could’ve been due to where our seats were too. Vocals were way up in the mix as were the keys during solos. John was funny and seemed to be in a great mood. Great show.
Jesse Layfields from Toronto, Ontario
Johns voice was flawless
Robbie was channeling angus young AC/DC
They did not Bettet Days, that was a bummer. How do you not perform one of their greatest songs?
Overall excellent concert.
Dan the man from Las Vegas, Nevada
It was my first time seeing the Goo Goo Dolls.
Do they really hate each other that much?!?! If
that was an act they should get 5 stars and an
Academy Award, otherwise how have they
been together for 23 years? I’ve never heard a
performer tell the crowd “he would have never
stayed for the show”.
Erin from Washington, District of Columbia
COMEDIAN AND LATENESS
Comedian was terrible. Just not
funny and so wrong. Sad the Goo
Goo Dolls started so late. Standing in
the GA area for over 2 hours waiting
for the show to begin was not fun.
Show itself was AMAZING!!!!
Lk from Dayton, Ohio
We absolutely loved Blue October, but GooGoo Dolls disappointed! We left early. My sister wanted to leave after the 1st song. I think John Rzeznik forgot his words. When we were leaving amphitheater, we could hear music stop suddenly. It’s a shame because I enjoy their music on YouTube.
Laura from Bethel, New York
SUCH AN AWKWARD SHOW, WE LEFT SUPER EARLY
Saw them at Bethel Woods on 8/6.
They started way later than expected. John’s foot was in a boot so he sat the whole time and he seemed annoyed the whole time. The show felt rushed and like they couldn’t get through the songs fast enough. John kept having little tantrums to the sound tech mid song(s) to turn the mic up and then down and then up again. The whole band seemed over it. Kept saying it was Sunday and how everyone was tired, a very “let’s get this over with” vibe. Maybe it was his pain pills but John was off. Such an awkward weird vibe all around. We ended up leaving way early, which saved us from the traffic anyway.
Karin Harris from Denver, Colorado
DISAPPOINTED IN DENVER
I have never been to a concert where the lead singer is wearing a baseball cap, sweats and Teva
sandals, and I hope I never do again! The show was long and boring, even the Goo Goo Dolls classic hits, felt off. We stayed until the end, but only to hear Iris. We didn’t see many people standing up and dancing, except for the hits. As we walked to the car, other concert goers remarked on the show as weird. We left disappointed and kinda wished we had stayed home. I’m sad, because won’t enjoy their music in the same way anymore. I hope Johnny is ok, because he was definitely “off” in Denver.
