"I'm so proud to finally be able to announce our summer tour with a great band and our friends O.A.R.," said John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls in a press release. "It's going to be an amazing night of great music for everyone so BE THERE!!!"

As O.A.R.'s Marc Roberge said, "After working on separate albums in the same studio all last year, John and I realized pretty quickly how much fun we'd have on tour together. We're all band guys, love being musicians, and started planning a special night that all our fans would enjoy."

Fun facts: The Goo Goo Dolls were started by frontman Rzeznik and bassist Robby Takac in 1986, eventually going on to sell 15 million records worldwide and continuing to hold the all-time radio record for Most Top 10 Singles.
