Events near Ashburn
For a little bit of a throwback, get tickets to see alt rock hit makers the Goo Goo Dolls. The veteran performers own whatever stage they’re on and fans eat it up in return. Front man John Rzeznik is at home on stage and exudes an energy that makes it clear he is happy to be there. Audiences are usually packed with fans who have been with the band since they first dominated the airwaves in the early 2000s. So it’s no surprise that concerts turn into exuberant sing-alongs when the biggest hits like “Slide” and “Black Balloon” get played. The band gives fans what they want, packing set lists with old favorites and big hits. But they’re also confident enough to try out a new song or two, because guaranteed they’re just as catchy as ever. Fans dance along to the new songs just as much as to the old ones. Rzeznik is a charismatic stage presence, keeping up a witty and warm banter with the audience between songs, and holding them in the palm of his hand. It makes for a fun and exciting show pack with Goo Goo Dolls fans hanging on every word and dancing along to every song.
