Goo Goo Dolls Make QVC Debut
Rock Band To Pitch DVD/CD Set On Shopping Channel

By Judy Faber

(CBS) The Goo Goo Dolls are making their QVC debut next Tuesday night to sell a specially packaged bonus material DVD and CD set three weeks before it hits stores.

The shopping network will broadcast a special behind-the-scenes interview and concert with the band live from the music venue Nightclub 9:30 in Washington, D.C.

The trio is on tour in support of their "Let Love In" album.

The Goo Goo Dolls "Live and Intimate" DVD and "Let Love In" CD set features music video and bonus acoustic tracks.

Other artists who have appeared on QVC to promote their music include Carly Simon, Barry Manilow, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Alabama and Chaka Khan.

Manilow broke the record in 2006 for the highest single–hour music sales event in QVC's twenty–year history with more than 43,000 units ordered of his album, "The Greatest Songs of the Sixties."

The band formed in Buffalo, N.Y., in 1986 by singer/guitarist John Rzeznik and bassist Robby Takac. Their original sound fell somewhere between punk and metal, but in their 22-year career they've developed a more mainstream rock and adult-oriented style.

Current drummer Mike Malinin began playing with the group in 1995 — the year the Goo Goo Dolls had their first No. 1 hit with the song "Name."

The Goo Goo Dolls followed that up with 1998's "Iris" from its triple-platinum album "Dizzy Up Girl." The heartfelt, guitar-driven waltz held the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 Airplay chart for 18 weeks.
