Goo Goo Dolls have announced a return to the UK and Ireland for 9 dates including a Manchester gig at Manchester Academy.

The tour marks the band’s first UK and Ireland shows since 2020 and opens in Dublin in June 2023.  The UK dates will conclude with a headline show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.

With more than 30 years together as a band and over 12 million albums sold, four-time GRAMMY-nominated Goo Goo Dolls released their 13th studio album Chaos In Bloom earlier this year.  The album is the first of their career to be produced by front man John Rzeznik.

The album features the tracks Yeah, I Like You and You Are The Answer.

Goo Goo Dolls recently finished a mammoth 70 date tour of the U.S and have just announced another outing for next summer. They partnered with the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation for the tour, a non-profit founded in 2002 by Ali and Joe Torre to provide healing and education services to youth who have been traumatized by exposure to violence including domestic violence, child abuse, teen dating abuse, and sexual assault to help break the cycle of violence.
