Goo Goo Dolls To Play Immersive Livestream Concert

Multi-platinum, four-time Grammy-nominated rock band Goo Goo Dolls have announced an immersive livestream concert in partnership with live-streaming music platform FanTracks.

Set for Saturday, October 24th at 6pm PT / 9pm ET, the band will deliver a completely live performance in full-scale production featuring hits from across their iconic catalogue.

Fans around the world will also have access to multi-camera viewing and the ability to visit a virtual merch booth and purchase meet & greet and VIP packages for the show, giving them the complete experience of a rock concert from the comfort of their own home.

"Everyone knows that the Goo Goo Dolls are one of the best live bands ever,” said Barry Summers, president/executive producer of FanTracks. β€œIn a time when fans are unable to see and participate in live music, this partnership represents the best of what can happen when ground-breaking technology meets accomplished talent."

The concert will be followed in December by what is being described as the first ever augmented reality movie musical β€” produced and directed by Barry Summers β€” where the band will play songs from their forthcoming holiday record It's Christmas All Over.

Created during lockdown this year and produced by frontman John Rzeznik alongside the band's frequent collaborators Brad Fernquist and Jimmy McGorman, It's Christmas All Over drops on October 30th via Warner Records and boasts a diverse collection of songs that capture the warmth and spirit of classic Christmas music.

In addition to cover renditions of tracks such as Let It Snow and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, the project will feature several rarities, a jazz-infused medley finale and two brand new original holiday songs including the debut single This is Christmas.

Pre-orders for It's Christmas All Over are available now here, as well as exclusive merch offers including a red vinyl LP, a Goo Goo Dolls Crosley record player and additional limited edition items.

It's Christmas All Over arrives on the heels of the deluxe edition release of the band's acclaimed 12th studio record Miracle Pill.

Inner Machine (the official Goo Goo Dolls fan club) will have exclusive pre-sale access to tickets beginning Thursday, October 15th at 7:00am PT HERE, while general on-sale begins this Friday, October 16th at 7:00am PT HERE.
