Goo Goo Dolls Tickets - Buffalo Alternative Rock Continues To Expand Its Reach
by Jay Nault

Most people would be surprised to learn that Goo Goo Dolls tickets have been on the market and available for more than 20 years. However, this is an alternative rock band with serious staying power, and the biggest reason for this prolonged stardom is the fact that their sound remains fresh, and their innovative approach allows them to stay relevant to their millions of fans and other music lovers around the world. A look at their history should provide some insight as to how they've managed this long-term success.

Early Beginnings

The band came together in Buffalo in 1986, and their name was derived from a random magazine advertisement. They played local clubs for a time, and released their first album with a short-lived independent label without much commercial success. The band eventually expanded their horizons, and ultimately got to play a gig in Los Angeles.

It was this performance that got them noticed by a larger record company, and this led to their first big-time album release in 1987. However, their innovative sound was not immediately recognized, and their first album was widely panned by critics. The Goo Goo Dolls temporarily earned the moniker of "Replacements wannabes."

The band played on, however, and continued to hone their sound. This development led to acceptance on both the college radio scene and with the underground punk world, as their style was much more hard-edged than the classic "alternative" rock of the time. They were also becoming known for their energetic live shows, and Goo Goo Dolls tickets were becoming quite popular on college campuses and in punk rock clubs across the country.

Commercial Success

The band continued to cut albums, and a few singles from their next released hit the charts. However, it wasn't until 1995 that the band hit the mainstream market with their release of A Boy Named Goo, which went double platinum, and made the band a household name with rock and roll fans around the world. Their next release in 1998, Dizzy Up the Girl, went triple platinum and showed the world that the band had continued to develop their sound from their unique foundation.

Overall, the Goo Goo Dolls are anything but an "album mill," as their focus always has been on live performances and impromptu jam sessions, which is what the band members credit with their innovative sound. Their experimentation has led to many songs and albums that have experienced a huge amount of success, and even now they continue to hone their style.

If you've never used Goo Goo Dolls tickets, you're missing out on a night of true musical talent at its roots.
