Concert review - Goo Goo Dolls - Darien Lake PAC, Darien NY - August 12, 2017

By Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Darien , NY - The multi-platinum selling band from Buffalo, NY - The Goo Goo Dolls- are the one consistant entity that the citizens of the Western New York area can celebrate, enjoy, and be proud of year after year.  Every time the band performs in WNY, it turns out to be a party-like celebration of their amazing, two-decade long domination of the AOR play charts.  This particular show of their, "Long Way Home," summer tour was no exception, and dare I say, the Goo Goo Dolls took their usually flawless performance to another level.

Foreigner - Darien Lake PAC, Darien, NY - July 21, 2017

By John Jeffrey

Darien, NY - When Foreigner announced their plans to tour in support of the 40th anniversary of the band's career, it was clear from the very beginning that the band (currently consisting of only one original member, founder, Mick Jones) wanted to make the trek something very special.  Jones cited Foreigner's 40th anniversary summer tour as "a family affair," referring to the other acts on the bill and the return of some prodigal sons.
