(2b) Goo Goo Dolls and O.A.R. frontman Marc Roberge took to the stage on Good Morning America last week on ABC for a live performance of Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down".

Having teamed up to record a soaring cover version of the song earlier this spring, the appearance arrives just ahead of both bands hitting the road on The Big Night Out Tour, which kicks off July 24th in Clearwater, FL.

Goo Goo Dolls also delivered a second performance on GMA3, making the live television debut of their brand new single "Run All Night," an uplifting ballad about escaping from your circumstances and finding hope in the unknown.

Watch their rendition of "I Won't Back Down" here. In tandem with the live performances, Goo Goo Dolls have also announced a special edition vinyl of the Dizzy Up The Girl that will arrive on September 15th, 2023. Limited-run and pressed on metallic silver ice vinyl, the release celebrates the 25th anniversary of the iconic album that was first released on September 22, 1998 via Warner Bros. Records. Dizzy Up The Girl is a record that catapulted the band into mainstream success and was cemented as one of the most indelible alt-rock records in recent memory. Featuring songs such as "Iris" (3 GRAMMY nominations, Certified Septuple Platinum, over 1 billion Spotify Streams), "Slide" (Certified Platinum, 240 million Spotify Streams) and "Black Balloon" (Certified Platinum, 65 million Spotify Streams), the album has sold over 6 million copies worldwide, had five top 10 singles and has since gone went 5x platinum in the US.

The Big Night Out Tour, traveling from coast to coast throughout the summer, features O.A.R. as the special guests throughout the entire first leg, with Fitz and the Tantrums supporting on the second leg this September. The sprawling North American run will see Goo Goo Dolls delivering career-encompassing sets that feature "Run All Night" and "I Won't Back Down", as well as songs from their recent album Chaos in Bloom and other hits from their complete discography including the record-smashing hit "Iris." The band will be partnering with Joe Torre Safe At Home for the tour, a nonprofit founded in 2002 by Ali and Joe Torre to provide healing and education services to youth who have been traumatized by exposure to violence including domestic violence, child abuse, teen dating abuse, and sexual assault to help break the cycle of violence.
