Goo Goo Dolls Set to Headline “Artists for Autism” Benefit

By  | 

Goo Goo Dolls have a busy 2016 planned! The rock band recently announced that they will be heading out on a North American summer tour with Collective Soul and Tribe Society. In addition to the tour, the band is set to headline an “Artists for Autism” concert to benefit the Institute for Autism Research at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York. The event will take place on April 16th at 8 PM in the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall, SUNY Buffalo State.

The “Artists for Autism” benefit was created by Armand John Petri, a producer who has worked with Goo Goo Dolls, as well as several other bands. Petri has an autistic son, which is his motivation for putting this benefit concert together. Petri’s son is involved with a community program at the Canisius Institute for Autism Research. This led Petri to join forces with John Rzeznik, frontman of Goo Goo Dolls, to produce a song titled “Not So Different.” The single will come out the same day as the benefit concert, April 16th.

Do you want to support this great cause? Tickets for Goo Goo Dolls “Artists for Autism” Benefit can be purchased at starting March 16th.
