When it comes to using the latest digital technology to create a stimulating experience for your audience, even the music industry hasn’t remained too far. Launching their first-ever holiday album, the exemplary American rock band, the Goo Goo Dolls, will perform in an augmented reality movie musical this weekend.
Reminiscing their experiences of playing songs from their new record live for the first time, band frontman John Rzeznik said,
“We can’t wait for everyone to see and hear these Christmas tunes in this unique way, and we hope they bring some cheer to this peculiar holiday season. Happy holidays from all of us to every single one of you!”
As stated in an official release by the band:
“In this AR movie musical adventure, Goo Goo Dolls travel through past, present, and future searching for the lost “Spirit of Christmas”; from wintery city street scenes, subways, and taxis; to a 1940s speakeasy and the classic set of The Ed Sullivan Show; and beyond. As the band travels between settings, fans will follow along for an intimate and festive musical experience, unlike anything they’ve ever seen. Throughout, they treat fans to classic holiday standards as well as their new holiday music, and discover that although people are separated by current events, we remain unified by the true nature of the holiday.”
This musical isn’t just about being at the forefront of the industry in terms of innovation but also carries a deeper purpose of giving back during the holiday season. The band has decided to auction two autographed guitars and contribute the proceeds towards St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
During the times of surrounding negativity due to the pandemic, Goo Goo Dolls had released their new album “It’s Christmas All Over,” to set the spirit right with some up-to-date music and holiday favorites.
Going by the same name, “It’s Christmas All Over,” the augmented reality movie musical will stream on December 12 at 7 p,m. EST on FanTracks.
