GOO GOO DOLLSGoo Goo Dollshave announced that they will hit the road in April for a spring acoustic tour, called The Otis Midnight Sessions. The shows will be performed in a “Story Tellers” format that enables the multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band to dig deep into an extensive song catalog spanning their nearly 30-year history.

The album, which debuted at No. 8 on theBillboardTop 200 chart, features the red-hot single“Come To Me,”which is shaping up to be the fastest-growing single in the Goos’ history, no small feat for a band that has scored 14 Top 10 radio hits, more than any other artist in the history of the Hot AC format.

In addition, the Goo Goo Dolls will perform at two upcoming Super Bowl-related concerts:The Super Bowl Kickoff Spectacular- a free, ticketed show that also features the band Daughtry and a first-class Macy’s Fireworks show. The event, the first to ever be associated with a Super Bowl, will take place on Monday, January 27th, along the Hudson River at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ, and serve as the official launch to the weeklong events.
