With their new album Boxes release just last week, Goo Goo Dolls – consisting of singer John Rzeznik and bassist Robby Takac – have announced a run of UK tour dates which will see them performing at Manchester’s iconic Albert Hall.

The tour marks their first UK run since 2013.

Boxes on CD and digital was released last week, with the vinyl coming on June 10th.  A vibrant and sonically forward-looking album, it retains what their legions of fans love about the Goo Goo Dolls — indelible melodies with intimate and heartfelt lyrics, whilst still pushing new boundaries in terms of sound and production. Singer and guitarist John Rzeznik enlisted some of his favourite songwriters and producers to collaborate with, including Gregg Wattenberg (with whom Rzeznik wrote four songs on the Goos’ 2013 album Magnetic), Wattenberg’s production partner Derek Fuhrmann, and Drew Pearson (who has worked with Phillip Phillips and OneRepublic).

The full tour listing:
8 October   –   Norwich, UEA
9 October   –   Leeds, O2 Academy
10 October   –   Glasgow, O2 Academy
12 October   –   Manchester, Albert Hall
13 October   –   Birmingham, O2 Institute
