Both bands have albums to support.  The Goo Goo Dolls’ latest studio effort is the June 2013 release Magnetic.  Daughtry released its fourth studio long player, Baptized, in November.  An acoustic set from the Plain White T’s will open each night.

As you might surmise, both bands are revving up the summer tour of amphitheatres.

“We are excited to finally be teaming up with Daughtry,” Goos vocalist/guitarist John Rzeznik said.  “Not only are we big fans of Chris, but we think this is going to be a huge party for the fans of both bands.  The combination of the two will make for an awesome summer night of great American rock music.”

For Chris Daughtry, the pairing of the two bands is an example of wish fulfillment.

“We’re huge fans of the Goo Goo Dolls and have wanted to tour with them for a long time now,” Chris Daughtry said.  “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.”
