If you live every day to the fullest, you will never run out of scars to show off, stories to share, and things to say.
As life goes on for Goo Goo Dolls, the ensuing music connects even more closely, embracing experimentation, exhibiting assurance, and exuding experience. Drawing on over three decades together, the four-time GRAMMY®️ Award-nominated record-breaking multiplatinum rock band—John Rzeznik and Robby Takac—supply a real sense of hope and a whole lot of heart on their twelfth full-length album, Miracle Pill [Warner Records].
Miracle Pill serves as the next step on a long life journey together for John and Robby. To date, Goo Goo Dolls’ sales exceed 12 million albums worldwide. Not to mention, the group garnered four GRAMMY®️ Award nominations and seized a page in the history books by achieving 14 number one and Top 10 hits at Hot AC—”the most of any artist in history.” As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for “Most Top 10 Singles.” Among a string of hits, “Iris” held #1 on the Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and would be named “#1 Top 40 Song of the Last 20 Years.”
Reserved; tickets are seat-specific. 2nd level seats are slightly behind and higher than the Terrace seats; 4th level seats are at the front of the Grandstand balcony. Both areas have unobstructed views.
Unreserved; General Admission. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. 3rd level seats are behind the 2nd level; 5th level seats are behind the 4th level, all under a roof supported by pillars (some seats have obstructed views).
If you already have Fair admission (examples: Best Pass Ever season pass, Exhibit entrant), you can buy this concert ticket type, which does not include Fair admission. These tickets are sold exclusively through the Fair's Box Office.
Doors to the Grandstand typically open 90 minutes before the show begins. This is an approximate time and may vary depending on crowd size and other factors.
If you are in a general admission area where it is first-come seating, a line-up area will be designated with signage in the Plaza de Mexico area. If you have a ticket with a specific seat, enjoy the Fair activities until you’d like to come to your seat.
My tickets are at Will Call. How do I pick them up?
Tickets ordered through Ticketmaster for pickup at Will Call will be available the day of the concert starting at 10:00AM. The Will Call booth is at the O’Brien Gate, informally known as the “front gate.” At the booth, present your Ticketmaster confirmation number, along with a valid ID (state-issued driver’s license or ID card, passport or military identification).
Can I get something to eat or drink during the concert?
Yes. The stage area has many food-and-beverage locations, or you can buy something from a Fair food vendor and bring it into the concert area.
Can I use my camera?
Any photography activities that may be deemed a nuisance to the enjoyment of others is prohibited. Personal “point and shoot” cameras are permitted, but do not block the view of people around you.
The following photography items are strictly prohibited, and may not be used during concerts:
No flash photography
No video or audio recording
No cameras with removable lenses
No selfie sticks
What are the authorized ticket sellers for Fair concert tickets?
There are only two authorized ticket sellers: Ticketmaster and the Fairgrounds Box Office. We strongly recommend you never purchase Fair concert or festival tickets from any other source. Tickets purchased from non-authorized sources could be counterfeit or stolen, which means the ticket will not be honored, and you will lose the money you paid.
