Alt/rock hitmakers the Goo Goo Dolls have two distinct sets of fans: those who insist, often with raised voices and a chance of fisticuffs, that the hardscrabble Buffalo-bred rockers were actually cool before they got big with radio hits that tend toward the sensitive side of ’90s rock; and those who made them get big. Once big, there’s no choice but to be big, however.
The Goo Goo Dolls continue to embrace the rock-star ride. They perform at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Saturday, August 19 at 8 p.m., with Phillip Phillips opening. Ticket prices range from the $48 to $110.50 for reserved seating and $34 for lawn.
