In a new interview with 107.9’s Matt and Ramona, Gwen brought up No Doubt’s short festival tour last summer while she was going through her separation and admitted that she kept everyone in the dark about the situation, including the band. She feels extremely grateful to be back on the road and to be feeding off the energy and love from the audience.
After spending the first week on her own this tour, Gwen shared that her boys will be joining her and says that it might be weird for them considering how much older they are this time around. She says that she feels a little nervous having them on the road with her but exciting. She jokingly says that she’s going to have a sit down with her boys and lay down some rules.
On the tour, Gwen says that everything came together and calls her band and backup dancers amazing. She says it’s been fun to switch it up this time around and meet new people. “You bond really quickly through the music.” Gwen shared that she’s gotten to know Eve more than she ever has and says that she’s incredibly lucky to have her around. “It’s been really fun doing those songs together. It feels so right.”
When asked if she’s planning on heading back to The Voice, Gwen asks everyone to pray for her that she gets the call saying being on that show inspires her so much. Gwen says that when she’s onstage, she’s been thinking of herself on the show and the advice she gave to her own teams.
Gwen shares that she never saw herself going on tour again and says that she felt like she pushed herself too hard in 2009. She called the band’s summer tour “magical” but felt exhausted since she had just given birth to Zuma and then immediately headed into the studio to write Push and Shove shortly after. Gwen said that last year was “the lowest of the low” for her and is still surprised in how she’s bounced back and regained her confidence in herself and her gift.
She admits that she lost her way with songwriting and says that nothing good came out of her “for years.” Gwen says that she pushed herself and changed her thought process and churned out song after song last summer.
Gwen says the thing she’s missed the most from touring is connecting with the audience. She sounds incredibly excited to be back on the road and has been having a lot of fun.
