An Evening of Acoustic Music

Goo Goo Dolls

with Special Guest Run River North

After more than two decades as a band, with nine albums, a catalog of songs that have become ingrained in the pop consciousness and countless concerts for millions of fans, the Goo Goo Dolls are feeling particularly good about their new album: Magnetic. The American rock band’s blue-collar Buffalo origins have fueled the group’s energy since they first garnered buzz on the local, then regional and then national club scenes. The trio -- known for their distinct singles “Slide,” “Name,” and the Grammy-nominated, record-breaking hit “Iris” -- returns to The Grand after their sold out 2011 show for an intimate, acoustic performance in the 300-seat venue, the baby grand. “When I pick up an acoustic guitar and start singing, it’s me,” says lead singer John Reznick. “We can’t be anybody else. I like what I sing. We like what we write. And if we don’t like it, we don’t play it.”
