Matchbox 20 (pictured) and the Goo Goo Dolls have announced a tour date in Halifax this summer. The musicians will perform at the Metro Centre on Aug. 29.
The bands are touring North America together with special guest Kate Earle, and will perform at the Metro Centre on Aug. 29.
Matchbox 20 rose to fame in the late 1990s with hits like Real World and 3 AM off their debut album Yourself or Someone Like You.
Now on Album No. 5, their latest record North was released last year and hit No. 1 one on the Billboard 200.
The Goo Goo Dolls formed in 1985 and had a breakthrough with Name, a track from the popular A Boy Named Goo album.
But it was the mega-smash Iris written for the City of Angels movie soundtrack, which earned the rock group three Grammy nominations and stayed on top of the charts for 18 weeks.
