The past two years have seen Connecticut rockers Goose grow from a local bar band to a premiere festival headliner who are today announcing their biggest show to date.

Goosemas began as a tradition with humble roots in the basement of a Norwalk, CT music studio. While the next four years would see the band hold an intimate event inside underground venues in Norwalk, the sixth iteration of Goosemas found the band moving the event to Wall Street Theatre. During 2020, Goosemas went up to the top of Rockefeller Plaza for a Twitch exclusive livestream, drawing over 60,000 viewers worldwide,and raised over $45,000 for charity.

We’re so stoked to host Goosemas back home in Connecticut. It has truly been incredible to see how the event has grown over the past few years, and we can’t wait to do it again in front of a live audience

guitarist/vocalist Rick Mitarotonda

This year’s show will see Goose take the stage for three sets, with plenty of surprises in store for fans. Goosemas will be the last show of a highly anticipated, 19-date national fall run, with over half of the tour already sold out.

Initial tickets will be available through a lottery, with a request period running today Tuesday, August 24th at 12 PM ET through Wednesday, August 25 at 5 PM ET. Winners will be notified before the general on-sale, beginning Friday, August 27 at 10 AM ET. Venue Presale will be held on Thurs, Aug 26 @ 10am-10pm ET — password STOCKS
