What do Matchbox Twenty and the Goo Goo Dolls have in common? Well, both are familiar names when it comes to American rock bands. Both have been in the business for decades. Both have had numerous chart-topping singles throughout their long careers…and both are currently on a summer tour together.
With hits like “Iris” and “If You’re Gone,” it’s hard to find someone who hasn’t heard of either of these bands. Matchbox Twenty and the Goo Goo Dolls, of course, have plenty of other tracks between them that are just as great as those chart-toppers. With two great American bands sharing one stage, it’s safe to say that the #MB20GoosTour is one you wouldn’t want to miss.

Formed nearly a decade before the other, the Goo Goo Dolls have been writing and performing since 1986. Twenty-seven years later, the band still has the same passion for music and continues to credit their hometown of Buffalo, New York as an influence for their style and sound. The influence has produced nine studio albums, the most recent titled Magnetic. Album nine, which was released just this year, has churned out yet another hit single to add to the list, “Rebel Beat.”
Almost ten years later, in 1995, Matchbox Twenty emerged into the American rock band scene from the south side of the country, Orlando, Florida. The band, despite its two hiatuses, has remained popular throughout the years. Just last year, the band released their fourth studio album, North. The album was a long-time coming, taking five years for the band to write and record. The effort paid off, landing Matchbox Twenty a spot on the Billboard 200 that year. North also featured a hit single for MB20, titled ”She’s So Mean.”
