ABOUT GOO GOO DOLLS: Goo Goo Dolls uphold an unbreakable connection to countless fans. Their influence has been fortified by a catalog replete with the unforgettable smashes “Name,” “Iris” and “Slide,” which were all included in the top 25 of Billboard’s “Top 100 Pop Songs 1992 – 2012” chart, as well as numerous other hits such as “Black Balloon,” “So Alive” and many more. To date, they’ve sold 12 million albums worldwide, earned four Grammy award nominations and made history by notching 14 Top 10 hits at Hot AC – “the most of any artist in history.” Notably, “Iris” dominated the Hot 100 Pop Chart at #1 for 18 straight weeks. Among 11 full – length records, A Boy Named Goo  went double – platinum, Dizzy Up The Girl went quadruple – platinum, and Gutterflower  and Let Love In  both went gold as Something for the Rest of Us  and Magnetic  bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. 2016’s Boxes attracted the praise of People and Huffington Post as Noisey, Consequence of Sound, and more featured them. In 2017, the You Should Be Happy EP spawned another anthem in the form of “Use Me,” which quickly generated 3 million – plus Spotify streams. Goo Goo Dolls will be releasing their brand new live album The Audience is That Way (The Rest of the Show) [Live], Vol. 2 on November 23rd.
ABOUT HANSON: In 2017, the trio of brothers who make up Pop-Rock trio HANSON celebrated 25 years of playing music together selling millions of albums, receiving multiple Grammy nominations, and reaching fans world-wide. To celebrate the landmark year, HANSON launched the “Middle Of Everywhere 25th Anniversary World Tour,” alongside a greatest hits collection of the same name, which included the single “I Was Born,” that highlighted the undeniable staying power of the band with sold-out concerts across the globe and released a widely praised second holiday album Finally It’s Christmas. The year’s projects set the course for the next chapter, marked by a continued focus on their music, and dedication to their fan community.
ABOUT ANDY GRAMMER: Since his 2011 self-titled debut, Grammer has consistently delivered stratosphere-size smashes buoyed by impressive range, deft musicality, and endless charisma. By 2019, he scored six chart-topping hits – each certified gold or better by the RIAA. The artist’s breakout “Keep Your Head Up” and its follow-up “Fine By Me” are both certified platinum. His 2014 sophomore offering, Magazines or Novels, went gold and yielded the gold “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah).” During this chapter, the single “Honey, I’m Good” reached quadruple-platinum status globally, emerging as “one of the best-selling songs of 2015.” He maintained this streak on 2017’s The Good Parts. The standout “Fresh Eyes” tallied over 500 million streams, achieving a platinum plaque. Not to mention, he consistently sold out headline gigs everywhere.
ABOUT DEAN LEWIS: Dean Lewis, a singer-songwriter from Sydney, released his album A Place We Knew in March 2019. The album shares songs of hope and heartbreak built around Lewis’ passionate voice, deeply personal storytelling and his familiar, raw brand of acoustic songwriting. It tells stories about the seismic change in his life brought on by the success of 2016 debut single “Waves,” after which the songwriter found himself traveling the globe and living out of hotel rooms, to the detriment of his relationship at the time.
