Goo Goo Dolls Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion June 27, 2014

"Darling, I'm sorry," the Goo Goo Dolls' frontman John Rzeznik said from the Woodlands Pavilion stage Friday night, addressing a young woman he had just publically chastised for being on her phone during his band's performance.

"I just want you to have a good time tonight," he continued. "So this song is for you."

He then began strumming his acoustic guitar, and the opening chords to 1995's breakthrough hit "Name" echoed through the amphitheater as the crowd roared its approval.
