Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band Goo Goo Dolls, made up of John Rzeznik (vocals/guitar) and Robby Takac (bass) will be touring in support of their new album Boxes. The Goo Goo Dolls are one of the most globally respected and influential forces in popular music, selling over 10 million albums since 1986. They have scored 14 Top 10 radio hits (more than any other artist in the history of the Hot AC format), including "Name," "Slide" and "Iris," the latter spent nearly 12 straight months on the Billboard charts and held the #1 position for 17 consecutive weeks. The band has toured the globe countless times, performed in front of millions of fans, received numerous awards (including four Grammy nominations), and recorded and released ten studio albums, including their latest, Magnetic, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and at #2 on the Top Rock Albums chart, propelled by the single "Come To Me," the fastest-growing single in the band’s history. Rzeznik has also been honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award.

Born during the rise of grunge and alternative rock, Collective Soul broke into mainstream popularity when they rose to international fame in 1993 with the rock anthem “Shine.” The multi-platinum quintet has been making music for two decades and has a catalog of #1 hits under their belts. Collective Soul consisting of Ed Roland (vocals/keyboard/guitar), Dean Roland (rhythm guitar), Jesse Triplett (lead guitar) Will Turpin (bass) and Johnny Rabb (drums) helped shape and define alternative rock with their unique sound and attitude. The band’s debut album Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid (1993) was a collection of Ed Roland’s demos that spread like fire through the college circuit and the popularity of the album locally spurred Atlantic to pick it up for a major-label release. “Shine” quickly became the rock anthem played across the country on radio and MTV and set the band up for their first tour with Aerosmith. Their self-titled second album went triple platinum and would define their sound with guitar driven songs and passionate vocals. The album produced five Top 10 hits and two of the singles, “December” and “The World I Know,” charted on the Top 40. In 2001, Dolly Parton won a Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance with her cover Collective Soul’s “Shine,” and in further recognition of their artistic achievement, the band was inducted into The Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2009.
