Give me balloons, pretty lights, and upbeat guitars, and it’s a party. Goo Goo Dolls turned a dreary November night into a party for hundreds of Iowans who came to the show. Despite it being a Wednesday, Adler Theater in Davenport, IA, was full.
Goo Goo Dolls have been around for over 30 years. So, there is not much I can tell you that you don’t already know. Let me just give you a few quick updates before I send you on to look through the photos. Do they still put on a great show? -Yes. Do they still write catchy, upbeat tunes that make you want to dance? -Yes. Is Johnny still hot? -Yes. Does Robby wear shoes on stage? -No. Was it worth driving for 4 hours (round trip) in a car with a broken heater? -Absolutely.
The show was part of the band’s Miracle Pill tour in support of their 12th album, released in September. Besides the new material from the album, the band performed its well-known hits, “Slide,” “Name,” and others. The audience sang, danced, played with balloons, and had a fantastic time. The tour will continue for another six weeks (see dates below). I highly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity, for the Miracle Pill is lots of fun.
