Goo Goo Dolls Celebrate 20th Anniversary of ‘Dizzy Up The Girl’

Melissa Rodriguez | April 12, 2018
Goo Goo Dolls 2018 Concert Tour

Rock band Goo Goo Dolls have a lot to celebrate this fall. In honor of the 20th anniversary of their multi-platinum album Dizzy Up The Girl, they will be embarking on a lengthy 27-date tour across North America.

The trek will kick off In Phoenix, Arizona on Sept. 30 and will feature stops in Nashville, Boston, and Denver before wrapping in Las Vegas on Nov. 18.

Dizzy is their sixth studio album, released on Sept. 22, 1998. 20 years later, it is still the group’s highest-selling record to date with over four million copies sold in the U.S. alone.

Each show will see the Goo Goo Dolls perform songs from the Dizzy album, including two of the band’s biggest hits, “Iris” and “Slide.” The second half of the show will feature songs off their other 10 studio albums, including their most recent album, Boxes, which came out in 2016. They also released the You Should Be Happy EP last year.

In an interview, lead singer John Rzeznik commented on how he never grew tired of playing hits like “Iris,” easily the band’s most popular song.

"It's as new as the first day I played it," he said. "I just find myself always grateful that song came into my life ... It's one of those things like getting hit by lightning: It doesn't happen very often."


Who are The Goo Goo Dolls?


The Goo Goo dolls formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, featuring vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer Mike Malinin. They first achieved commercial success with the release of their 1995 album, A Boy Named Goo, which spawned popular hits like “Name” and “Naked.” Their 1998 album Dizzy Up Girl would go on to become their biggest to date, yielding their most popular single “Iris.” The song spent nearly 12 straight months on the Billboard charts and held the number one spot on the Hot 100 Airplay chart for 18 weeks. The first single from their 2010 album, Something for the Rest of Us, titled "Home", extended the band's record to 14 top ten hits at the hot AC radio format (more than any other artist in the history of that format). Other hit singles throughout their lengthy career include “Better Days,” “Give a Little Bit” and “Let Love In.”
