June 18, 2014 After more than two decades as a band, the Goo Goo Dolls have 10 albums to their name and have a catalog of songs that have become ingrained in the pop consciousness, including “Iris,” “Slide,” “Black Balloon” and “Name,” to mention a few. After all this time, the band is still seeing success, with three of the band’s songs making the Billboard’s Top 100 of 1992-2012 list, “Iris” standing at No. 1; that song has also connected with a new generation as Dolls fan Taylor Swift has been performing it at her concerts. The Goo Goo Dolls performed Tuesday at Family Circle Stadium with Daughtry and special guests the Plain White T’s. If the name Chris Daughtry sounds familiar, it should, as he was a finalist on Season 5 of “American Idol.” The North Carolina-based singer-songwriter and bandleader has since released four albums, including “Baptized,” which features the hit single “Waiting for Superman.” The Plain White T’s is a pop punk band from Chicago best known for the No. 1 hit song “Hey There Delilah,” as well as “1, 2, 3, 4 (song)” and “Rhythm of Love.”
