After more than 20 years of pop/rock success with chart-topping hits like "Name," "Iris," "Slide," and "Black Balloon," the Goo Goo Dolls are touring to promote their latest album, "Magnetic." The band also played three Chicago-area shows in June, performing with Matchbox Twenty at Ravinia.

The Naperville Jaycees, which organizes the Last Fling, has not yet announced ticket prices or local ticket sales locations, but said such details should be available shortly. Tickets also will be sold online at

The annual festival over Labor Day weekend includes a business expo on Jackson Avenue, a carnival, the main stage, a free entertainment stage and Family Fun Land on the grounds of Naper Settlement.

The fest also will offer a meet-and-greet with a Disney star yet to be named and a dunk tank to soak local elected officials, along with the iconic Bed Races featuring a team of "Nuns on the Run," Last Fling Executive Director Bill Eagan said.
