Dave's other band CO Jones is playing a show tonight in Buffalo. Check out the show flyer!
I've updated the Tour Calendar with the latest info. Of particular note, the show for Madison, WI has been taken off and will likely not be rescheduled or added. Please do not contact the venue or promotion agency about this, thanks.
I'm hearing all sorts of rumors about the Buffalo shows in December. The two most interesting and valid that I've heard so far are from Joe who says they are quite possibly going to be filming a new video (Broadway, maybe?) at the concert! Additionally, Harry says that the show on 12/1 is a "Toys for Tots" show. Anyone who brings a new toy gets a real autographed picture of the Goo's. The person with the most toys supposedly gets an autographed guitar from Johnny. I can't confirm the validity of either of these, so no guarantees! Both Joe and Harry mentioned that if the first show sells out, they have options for shows at Shea's for 12/2 *and* 12/3!
In addition to the new releases mentioned below, there is also an Iris/Slide import CD apparently available from Germany. It has the album and acoustic versions of both Iris and Slide on it. Here's the album cover! (Thanks, Phil!)
I added Jackie and Amanda to the Goo Fans' Photo Album!
Kevin alerted me that tickets for the Buffalo (12/1) show now go on sale September 24, not in early October as previously scheduled.
Be sure to catch the Goo's tomorrow (Sept 21) on the Rosie O' Donnell show. In other TV news, the Goo Goo Dolls FANatic will reair Thursday at 2:30 pm Eastern and the Goo's on Loveline repeats on Friday at 11:30 pm Eastern!
Erin typed up an article about the Goos from Music Alive magazine!
