On January 23, 2014 the band released a statement regarding the tour:
The Goo Goo Dolls will hit the road in April for a spring acoustic tour called The Otis Midnight Sessions. The shows will be performed in a “Story Tellers” format that enables the multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated band to dig deep into an extensive song catalog spanning their nearly 30-year history. It also offers a rare opportunity for fans to see them perform in more intimate settings than the Goos normally visit on their many live treks. The Goos will be joined by Los Angeles favorites Run River North.
An additional date was announced on February 24.
