With the recent release of their 12th studio album, Miracle Pill, and a new headlining North American tour, Goo Dolls are scheduled to play the Scenic City on Friday at the Tivoli Theater.

In anticipation of the stop, the band’s bassist, vocalist, and co-founder, Robby Takac, spoke with Chattanoogan.com via telephone before kicking off the tour in Texas. 

Goo Goo Dolls just wrapped up an “amazing summer tour with Train,” according to Takac and is “excited to be out on the road again” in support of the latest album.

Listening to Miracle Pill, fans will notice the growth and progression of the band. Takac commented on the group’s evolution from their early and raw punk days to their more pop-influenced sound of today. “We’re still the same band… we’ve just grown up as people.” 

With that growth comes a different sound, one that fans and critics have been very receptive of. In fact, the audience on this tour can expect to hear about half of the new the record live in concert, mixed in with Goo Goo Dolls classics such as “Iris,” “Slide,” and “Name.” 

Doors for the Friday night show will open at 7:00 pm, with Beach Slang as the supporting act. Tickets can be purchased at the Tivoli Box Office or online at: https://www.tivolichattanooga.com/events/795877/Goo_Goo_Dolls
