LAS VEGAS – April 12, 2010 – Platinum-selling rock artists Goo Goo Dolls to perform at The Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort on Saturday, June 5, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. as part of the band’s U.S. tour.
Formed in 1986, the Goo Goo Dolls released their debut, self-titled album two years later and with the subsequent release of 1990’s Hold Me Up, secured the band’s place in the early ‘90s genre of college radio hits. The band went on to release several more albums including A Boy Named Goo (1995) featuring the single “Name” and one of the band’s most successful contributions took place in 1998 with the ballad “Iris” which appeared on the soundtrack for the movie City of Angels. “Iris” received great acclaim and became one of the band’s most popular songs to-date, receiving three Grammy nominations and major market airplay.
The band’s next album, Dizzy Up the Girl, was released in September 1998 and sold more than three million copies and included hit singles “Slide,” “Dizzy” and another Grammy nominated hit “Black Balloon.” The band released several more albums including a CD/DVD Live in Buffalo: July 4, 2004 and 2006’s Let Love In which marked the band’s eight studio album. The song “Better Days” from Let Love In proved to be another powerful anthem for the group and the song was used by CNN to promote recovery efforts following the devastating Hurricane Katrina. Goo Goo Dolls released two greatest hits albums Greatest Hits: Volume 1 and Greatest Hits: Volume II in 2007 and 2008 respectively. The bands ninth studio release, Something for the Rest of Us, is scheduled to be released this spring.
