Goo Goo Dolls and Daughtry will co-headline a lengthy tour this summer

Goo Goo Dolls are known for their massive summer touring, and this summer will be no different. The pop-rock trio behinds hits such as “Iris” and “Name” will team up with Daughtry for a co-headlining tour this summer. Alternative rock group Plain White T’s will open the show performing acoustically.

The upcoming tour will kick off June 12 in Wallingford, Conn., and is slated to run through Aug. 23 in Essex Junction, Vt. More dates are expected to be announced.

“We are huge fans of the Goo Goo Dolls and have wanted to tour with them for a long time now,” Chris Daughtry said in a statement. “Everyone will see more than two great bands on stage. They’re going to get an incredible show every night and have a summer to remember.”

“We are excited to finally be teaming up with Daughtry,” Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik added. “Not only are we big fans of Chris, but we think this is going to be a huge party for the fans of both our bands. The combination of the two will make for an awesome summer night of great American rock music.”

Goo Goo Dolls are out in support of their latest full-length, “Magnetic,” and Daughtry are touring to promote their current release, “Baptized.”

This isn’t the only touring Goo Goo Dolls will be doing this year. Before this summer run, the band will perform at various North American venues in April for a special, intimate acoustic tour called the Otis Midnight Sessions.
