On August 22nd fans took a step back in time at Blossom Music Center. The Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox 20 are currently on tour together and Thursday night was Northeast Ohio's opportunity to see them perform.
Even though both bands have made new music in the recent years the show seemed to consist of hits from the 90's. These are the songs that made these two bands famous.
The Goo Goo Dolls took the stage around 8:00. Behind the band was a huge backdrop that read "Goo Goo Dolls". Mike Malinin was positioned high on a platform towards the back of the stage while John and Robby shared center stage.
This was my third time at a Goo Goo Dolls concert and they sound just as good as they did in 1999. "Last Hot Night" was the opening song. Throughout the set we heard "Naked", "Slide", "Iris", "Name" and "Black Balloon". The last track was accompanied by the audience keeping black balloons afloat throughout the crowd.
John and Robby both made small talk with the audience, collecting items from fans and reading signs that were held high.
