The Goo Goo Dolls have been performing together for 30 years, and part of the celebration includes a stop at the AMP next week.

The band will be at the venue on Tuesday, Sept. 6, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the show.

The multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band has sold over 10 million albums since first forming in 1986. While the group is responsible for several hit singles, they’re best known for “Iris,” a song originally written for the soundtrack of the 1998 film City of Angels and later included on the band’s sixth album Dizzy Up the Girl.

The group has since recorded five more albums, including Boxes, which was released last month through Warner Bros. Records.

Special guests Collective Soul will open the show.

Tickets are $35.50-$61.50, on sale now at

Of course, you could just save your money, and be the lucky winner of our little giveaway. Good luck.
