Event center perfect sizzle for a show of the Goo magnitude. Crowd was mixed ages with younger kiddos all the way up to the fans on life support. It was a good time. Small concert venue provided excellent views for all seating. OAR and GooGoo Dolls together was a great double feature! The complaints are from people who apparently haven’t broken their foot before! It takes 6 weeks in a boot to heal. Add the muscle atrophy and it’s a miserable experience to recover from. Imagine having a tour in progress while in treatment for a broken foot? Props to the band for thinking of their fans enjoyment. Clearly these guys put their fans first and that’s something to consider prior to complaining about the show. The other option was no show. Thank you Goo Goo Dolls and The Borgata for another amazing visit! The set list was stellar and the music was on point. My tail wagged and I had a blast

Big fans of the Goos. Didn’t realize they were in town until 2 days ago. Bought 2 GA tickets for what seemed a reasonable price- then added on 30.00 in fees and another 30.00 for parking. Then 60.00 for 2 hamburgers/fries/cokes. Such bullshit. OAR opened and some of their songs we liked but others were annoying- to many trumpet solos, barf. Just not our thing but they were talented. Pretty loud but well mixed. The Goos came on and unfortunately, we were towards the back and as everyone stood up, we could see the top of the keyboardist and drummers head. And the video that wasn’t showing the band but videos to enhance the songs. SO MANY watched the entire show through their phones. It was odd to see people filming what they couldn’t see… weird. A guy and his wife behind us had their phones on their laps the entire time. He NEVER looked up. Playing a game? Porn surfing? Others around us just wanted to talk and take selfies all night. Only reacted to the hits. I hate concerts in the 21st century. Rant over. Johnny had a cold but you’d never k ow it except for the time he mentioned it. His voice sounded great. Robbie was Robbie. The bass was way down in the mix. Coulda used more. It could’ve been due to where our seats were too. Vocals were way up in the mix as were the keys during solos. John was funny and seemed to be in a great mood. Great show.

Johns voice was flawless Robbie was channeling angus young AC/DC They did not Bettet Days, that was a bummer. How do you not perform one of their greatest songs? Overall excellent concert.

It was my first time seeing the Goo Goo Dolls. Do they really hate each other that much?!?! If that was an act they should get 5 stars and an Academy Award, otherwise how have they been together for 23 years? I’ve never heard a performer tell the crowd “he would have never stayed for the show”.

Comedian was terrible. Just not funny and so wrong. Sad the Goo Goo Dolls started so late. Standing in the GA area for over 2 hours waiting for the show to begin was not fun. Show itself was AMAZING!!!!

We absolutely loved Blue October, but GooGoo Dolls disappointed! We left early. My sister wanted to leave after the 1st song. I think John Rzeznik forgot his words. When we were leaving amphitheater, we could hear music stop suddenly. It’s a shame because I enjoy their music on YouTube.

Saw them at Bethel Woods on 8/6. They started way later than expected. John’s foot was in a boot so he sat the whole time and he seemed annoyed the whole time. The show felt rushed and like they couldn’t get through the songs fast enough. John kept having little tantrums to the sound tech mid song(s) to turn the mic up and then down and then up again. The whole band seemed over it. Kept saying it was Sunday and how everyone was tired, a very “let’s get this over with” vibe. Maybe it was his pain pills but John was off. Such an awkward weird vibe all around. We ended up leaving way early, which saved us from the traffic anyway. Super disappointing.
