Over the summer I attended a concert by the Goo Goo Dolls at Woodstock. For anyone who has not been to Woodstock in nearly a decade, Woodstock has been completely revitalized and a new concert hall outdoors has been built within the last couple of years. The stage
is fairly big and there is a huge variety of lights and sounds that can come from the stage and the background. The seating arrangement of chairs can hold from 5,000 to 10,000 people.

In addition there is a huge area of grass land for people to sit down on that is located directly behind the chairs. I recommend bringing a blanket or folding chairs if you plan on sitting on the grass area. Tickets at Woodstock are of a fair value and you will definitely get your money’s worth for the show.

There are several parking lots to park your car and the price of parking is relatively cheap compared to other concert parking areas. There is also plenty of security to help direct you and make the transition into the concert hall as easy as possible.

I saw the Goo Goo Dolls in Concert for the first time at Woodstock. Going into the concert I thought that I had only heard a few of their songs but as the band began to play it was obvious that to the ordinary person who listens to the music on the radio and on television, the Goo Goo Dolls music has appeared everywhere and their music appeals to a broad range of people.

Their hit songs include Iris, Here is Gone, Sympathy, Black Balloon, Name, Better Days, Slide, Let Love In and Stay with You. The song “Name” is from the album “A Boy Named Goo” while their most famous song “Iris” is from their hit album, “City of Angels.” Finally, their second most popular album, “Dizzy Up the Girl” features the songs “Black Balloon” and “Slide.”

The songs of the Goo Goo Dolls are inspirational in that they inspire hope and conjure up a good feeling. Their music is addictive because the song is so great. They are made up of 4 people with a lead singer who is simply fantastic. If you decide to go to one
of their concerts, you will find yourself standing up and dancing immediately. I encourage each of you to share the same experience that I had with my friends at Woodstock.
