article imageReview: Goo Goo Dolls wonderful at the Beacon Theatre in New York City Special

New York - On November 21, The Goo Goo Dolls performed at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, and their headlining show was phenomenal.
Goo Goo Dolls opened their show with their newer song "Over and Over" and immediately broke into "Long Way Down." They took their fans on a trip down memory lane with such infectious pop-rock numbers as "Slide," "Big Machine" and the infectious "Here Is Gone," which was vocal perfection.
Equally impressive were other classics such as "Black Balloon" and "Name," as well as their new songs "Lucky One" and "So Alive," which were off their latest album, Boxes.
One of the highlight vocals of the night was when Rzeznik performed a powerful rendition of "Sympathy," solo and acoustic, where one could hear a pin-drop at the Beacon, as he showcased his vulnerability on this melancholic ballad. The control he maintained over his voice throughout this performance was impeccable.
Goo Goo Dolls closed with their signature ballad, "Iris," which Johnny began on acoustic guitar, and after unstrapping the guitar over his head, he took the microphone and belted out the Grammy-nominated classic, as the entire venue was reciting the lyrics verbatim, at the top of their lungs. Equally fun was "Broadway," which was their final song of this remarkable evening.
The Verdict
Overall, Goo Goo Dolls sounded incredible at the Beacon Theatre in New York. Robby Takac and Johnny Rzeznik deliver every time that they take the stage, and they had the New York crowd with them every step of the way. Their live show at the Beacon Theatre earned five out of five stars.
