Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band Goo Goo Dolls is thrilled to announce their tour to South Africa this December. Known for chart-topping hits like “Iris,” “Slide,” “Here is Gone,” and “Name,” their music has moved generations, solidifying them as one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands.

This tour follows the release of their newest album, Chaos In Bloom, and comes after almost 40 years of success and a massive US tour. Fans across the country can experience the magic of the Goo Goo Dolls in three iconic locations, each offering a unique and memorable concert experience.

The tour kicks off at Cape Town’s Kirstenbosch Gardens on December 4th, followed by a concert at Durban’s prestigious ICC Durban on December 5th. The tour culminates in a monumental finale at Pretoria’s historic Voortrekker Monument on December 7th.

“We’re so proud to finally be able to announce our South African tour” says John Rzeznik. “It’s going to be three amazing nights of great music for everyone, so be there!”

Presented by AMP Events, the Cape Town leg of the tour on December 4th forms part of the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert series – a celebrated annual tradition that attracts both locals and tourists alike. The world-renowned Kirstenbosch Gardens provides the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable night on the lawns under the stars. Special guests Just Jinjer add a touch of homegrown talent to this unforgettable night of music. Just Jinjer’s hits include “What He Means” and “Shallow Waters.”

The band will be supported by singer-songwriter Roan Ash in Durban, and by Roan Ash, Ross Learmonth and Matthew Mole in Pretoria.
