Still full of energy, AC/DC has played to over 4 million people on tour thus far, and you can catch their high-voltage rock sound when they take to the stage on August 30th in Sunrise, Florida.
South Florida Concerts in September
The Goo Goo Dolls ft. Collective Soul and Tribe Society
The Goo Goo Dolls have been performing since 1986—Wow, time flies—and fell into their big break in the mid-nineties.

Your irises will thank you.

Prepare to have fun, fun, fun as he sends good vibrations through the crowd with the catchy classics we’ve all grown to love.

Fans will even be offered opportunities to attend meet-and-greets with the bands before and after performances.
