The legendary rock band is partnering with O.A.R. on The Big Night Out Summer Tour, which brings them to more than 30 amphitheaters in cities across the country over the course of three months. The tour launches on July 24 in Tampa, Florida, and wraps on September 7 with a solo Goo Goo Dolls show at Yaamava’ Theater in Highland, California. The bands make stops in Chicago, Boston, Denver, and other major cities in between. The Goo Goo Dolls also host a two-night stay in their native state of New York with shows on August 5 and 6 in Wantagh and Bethel, respectively.

“I’m so proud to finally be able to announce our summer tour with a great band and our friends O.A.R.,” Goo Goo Dolls frontman and co-founder John Rzeznik shared in a press statement. “It’s going to be an amazing night of great music for everyone so BE THERE!!!”

“After working on separate albums in the same studio all last year, John and I realized pretty quickly how much fun we’d have on tour together,” adds O.A.R. lead singer and guitarist Marc Roberge. “We’re all band guys, love being musicians, and started planning a special night that all our fans would enjoy.”

A portion of the proceeds from tickets sold will benefit the Safe At Home Foundation. The organization was founded by former MLB player and team manager Joe Torre to provide healing services and education to young people who have been exposed to domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual assault to “empower them to live healthy lives free of violence,” according to the Foundation’s mission statement.

The Dolls recently wrapped a headlining North American tour, their first since 2019, in support of their 2022 album, Chaos in Bloom.

Tickets go on sale Friday (Dec. 9) at 10 a.m. local time. See the full list of dates below:
