Goo Goo Dolls to headline PACER’s Benefit April 27

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Goo Goo Dolls will headline PACER’s 41st annual Benefit on Saturday, April 27, 2024 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Goo Goo Dolls have enriched the music landscape with songs like “Iris,” “Slide,” “Black Balloon,” “Better Days,” and more! They continue to sell out venues around the world. Now guests can hear their amazing sound up close, all while supporting an important cause.

Formed by Rzeznik and Takac in Buffalo, NY during 1986, Goo Goo Dolls have quietly broken records, contributed a string of staples to the American songbook, connected to millions of fans, and indelibly impacted popular music for three-plus decades. Beyond selling 15 million records worldwide, the group has garnered four GRAMMY® Award nominations, nearly a dozen platinum and gold singles combined, and seized a page in the history books by achieving 16 number one and Top 10 hits. As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for “Most Top 10 Singles.” It will be an unforgettable evening!

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Goo Goo Dolls to Minneapolis as this year’s Benefit performer,” said Tonia Teasley, PACER’s Executive Director. “Their iconic songs will be front and center at our Benefit in a unique and intimate concert venue. We can’t wait for our guests to enjoy a show they will never forget.”

Tickets start at $100 and include access to PACER’s celebrated Live and Silent Auctions, engaging program, and Goo Goo Dolls’ headline performance. For tickets and information, please visit or call 952.838.9000.

This event celebrates PACER’s work on behalf of families of children with disabilities. Proceeds support PACER’s programs.
