The Goo Goo Dolls, the same band that brought us such hits as "Iris" and "Slide," will be dropping by Morgantown for a show before they go on to conclude of their most recent tour.

The Goo Goo Dolls will be performing at the Morgantown Event Center in downtown Morgantown this Sunday, Oct. 16.

After touring across the nation for their most recent album, "Something for the Rest of Us," the band will be gracing WVU with a performance that is sure to excite.

"I'm excited for the concert because I love concert atmospheres – especially with the large population of WVU students that will be attending," said Michele Moore, a freshman television journalism student.

Moore said thinks more than just students will be drawn to the concert Sunday because of the band's popularity.

"I have been following the band since I was about 12 years old," said Morgan Riddle, a sophomore international studies student.

Riddle said she wasn't sure what was the first song she heard from the Goo Goo Dolls, she has bought all of their albums.

"I'm not entirely certain as to the first song of theirs I heard, however, the first Goo Goo Dolls song I purchased was ‘Let Love In,' and since then I have compiled a collection of their entire repertoire."

Though Riddle has never seen them in concert before, she has expectations for the performance.

"From what I've heard, I expect nothing less than to have an amazing experience," she said.

Tickets are still available at the campus box office, but waiting much longer to purchase them could mean missing out on a performance that most believe will dazzle.

Tickets can be purchased at the box offices in the Mountainlair and the WVU Creative Arts Center.

When purchasing tickets at a WVU sponsored location, a $10 discount will be awarded to any WVU student with a valid ID.

Tickets can also be purchased at (304) 293-SHOW. The discount can also be redeemed with the verification of the student's WVU identification number over the telephone.

Concert tickets are also available at any Ticketmaster outlet, but the discount will not be valid at these retailers.
