Train & Goo Goo Dolls Summer Tour at Mohegan Sun
August 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Train & Goo Goo Dolls will appear at Mohegan Sun on August 11th.
Train’s self-titled debut album, released by Columbia in 1998 was the start of their now accomplished career – the tumbling wordplay of “Meet Virginia” gave them their first unlikely radio hit and 2001’s Drops Of Jupiter broke them to multi-platinum status thanks to the double GRAMMY award-winning title song that spent 10 months in the Top 40, and earned the Best Rock Song GRAMMY Award. They’ve sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, more than 30 million tracks, 14 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 with multiple platinum/gold citations, including 3 GRAMMY awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors. Train has gone on to receive eight Grammy nominations and has had 12 albums on the Billboard 200 album chart with their 2014 Bulletproof Picasso reaching No. 4 in 2012 and 2017’s a girl a bottle a boat debuting at No. 8.
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. Among eleven 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. That connection grows stronger in 2018 with the 20th anniversary tour celebrating Dizzy Up The Girl. The band is currently in the studio working on their 12th studio album.
