For their first tour Down Under since 2012, Matchbox Twenty will be supported by Goo Goo Dolls, famed for hits like “Iris”, at each show.

They’re touring in support of their new album Where the Light Goes, which is scheduled for release on May 26th (pre-save/pre-order here). Where the Light Goes will be Matchbox Twenty’s first new music in over a decade, and follows 2012’s North, which topped the ARIA Albums Chart.
