Goo Goo Dolls team with NFL and Pepsi for London gig
Now that Hank Williams Jr. has been benched, the NFL will be looking for a new musical mascot, and nothing says bone-crunching gridiron action like '90s adult alternative hitmakers The Goo Goo Dolls.
The New York band will be performing during the pregame show at the NFL's Pepsi Max International Series game at London's Wembley Stadium on Sunday, October 23.
They'll perform before the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the fifth competitive regular-season NFL game to be played in London. Maybe someone ought to tell these guys that people in jolly old England don't care about American football.
Meanwhile, Goo Goo Dolls fans in New England will be disappointed to hear that the band will have to reschedule two shows in New Hampshire and Connecticut in order to make the Pepsi gig.
The Goo Goo Dolls are touring behind their latest studio album, "Something For the Rest of Us."
