10/3/01 - This just in - more news about the benefit concert that's taking place October 20th at Madison Square Garden. If you are unable to snatch tickets for the event, which will likely sell out very fast(tix go on sale October 7th through TicketMaster), you'll be able to watch the broadcast on VH1 and MTV. More information is available at this link.

In yesterday's Daily Goo, it is noted that they will start working on the "final few songs" this week, so things in the studio are back to their normal pace. To benefit the Red Cross WTC Disaster Relief fund, the Goos will be selling autographed posters (through their website hopefully). In today's Daily Goo, more pics and news about Mike Malinin's 100-mile marathon that took 29.41 hours, also first mention of the Oct 20th concert in the Daily. For more information on these items, visit the Daily Goo at GooGooDolls.com.

I still have THREE autographed 8x10's of the Goo Goo Dolls ready to be given away in contests we will hold here at the World of Goo. Stay tuned!

10/2/01 - The Goo Goo Dolls will also perform on October 20th at Madison Square Garden in New York with a lot of other bands playing there as well, to benefit relief organizations in New York including the Fire Department and rescue workers. Tickets will go on sale October 7th at noon via Ticketmaster. For more info, go here.

This just in, and it's truly sad to report this, but it appears as if the Buffalo show has been cancelled. No reason has been given as of yet; it may be a scheduling conflict.

For the October 1st Daily Goo, there's a picture of Robby's birthday bowling party, along with news about Mike Malinin running a LONG marathon(4 of them), and also a new contest winner. Check it out!

10/1/01 - I have some very exclusive news to share today! As you may already know, the Goos have been working on their new album entitled Gutterflowers and have 3 confirmed tracks on it already. Right now, the Goos are deciding whether also to include a "heave version" of Name. There are two concerts that are scheduled to be held: one in Las Vegas on October 6th and one is secretly being held in Buffalo, New York on October 24th. At this time I have no information on where to find tickets or the specific venues in which they will be held.

More news about the concerts! The one in Las Vegas is a fund raiser concert for the American Red Cross and admission to the one in Buffalo is to be won on the radio on Edge 103.3FM and Kiss 98.5FM. The one in Buffalo is probably only going to be for those people who went to New York to help out in the crisis they're having there - only 100 pairs of tickets are being given out.

Clarification about the concerts: The concert in Buffalo is a show that will be held for the people who went to help out in New York - those people were already given tickets. Those two radio stations were given 50 pairs of tickets each to be given away in contests.

It appears that the message board has gone down again. No fear, just Visit the Backup Board!
