I've heard a couple reports that the Auckland show went off well yesterday! And also, the Goo's were supposedly filiming a video for Black Balloon today!
There's a pic of the Goo's on page 16 on the Rolling Stone with Rob Zombie on the cover. This is what they say about the Goo's (Thanks, Amanda!):
" . . . After their set, the Goos tipped the bubbly in honor of earning Z100's Most Played Song of 1998 accolade for their power ballad "Iris". "I'm glad we can still be a rock band with this weird sort of factory music that's going on," Goo head Johnny Rzeznik. "I'm not gonna bag on boy bands, but that's just not my thing."
Here is a rumor on the Dizzy video from Joe H.:
The video for Dizzy should officially be released next week, probably starting with 120 Minutes on Sunday February 28th. I talked to some people that have seen the pre-release of the video and they said it is probably one of the coolest videos they have seen in a while. It plays off like a movie trailer with the Goos as the stars. It includes a car chase with them in classic Ford Mustangs also. It basically sounds like a spin-off like Beastie Boys "Sabotage" video. They are also going to make a live appearance on MTV on March 7th with Carson Daly, most likely on Total Request Live and play Dizzy live.
Amber sent info about an interview from radio station KEDJ that has an interview with the Goo's somewhere on their site! And Sara let me know that the Goo's are in Teen People for the issue of April! Mostly Johnny, but there are pictures and a huge article!

According to allstar magazine, Mike was invited to the 5th Annual Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Celebrity Pro-Am golf tournament on April 12. I believe the Goo's will be in LaCrosse, and the tournament is in South Carolina, so it probably won't happen, but it's interesting anyway!
