If you missed The Goo Goo Dolls‘ virtual spectacular, now’s your chance to own a physical copy.

The event, dubbed Grounded with The Goo Goo Dolls, took place during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, when venues were shuttered to live events. So, the Grammy nominees got crafty and connected with fans via a virtual spectacular.

The “Iris” hitmakers performed their greatest hits using an Augmented Reality FanTracks Stage, which critics hailed for its use of groundbreaking technology — an LED Stage Set powered by the Unreal Engine, which major video game makers use. While Goo Goo Dolls weren’t the first band to do a virtual concert, they pioneered the first-ever virtual XR live concert.

The concert was livestreamed across the globe and allowed fans to virtually interact with the group via a live band chat feature.

Now, you can own your own copy of this performance with a 2-disc set, with the “Name” singers making available a 4K Blu-ray and Audio CD as well as a stand-alone DVD version of their concert.  In addition, those wanting just an audio version are in luck — they will also separately release the digital soundtrack on all platforms.

Grounded with the Goo Goo Dolls can be pre-ordered now and will be released on May 20.
