No Doubt have hit the stage!
KROQ — And the special guest isâ€¦Daft Punk! No, actually, itâ€™s the amazing, impenetrable No Doubt, SoCalâ€™s ska sweethearts who hustled for years before making mainstream success and becoming one of the biggest bands in the whole entire world. After Gwen Stefaniâ€™s appearance last night with her husband Gavin Rossdale of Bush on his song â€œGlycerine,â€ there were rumors that No Doubt would be the special guest tonight, but you never know for sure. You only hope, because as far as special guests go, No Doubt is the absolute perfect choice for a KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas. They are the epitome of a KROQ band. And, ummm, jealously eyeing Stefaniâ€™s abs, itâ€™s clear that they really havenâ€™t â€œchanged since yesterday.â€ We might need to find Stefani roaming around Los Angeles and do whatever pilates class sheâ€™s doing, but like seven times a day.
To an unbridled roar of the crowd, the band started with one of their current singles, â€œPush and Shoveâ€ and reggae artist Busy Signal joined them before they did their classic â€œSunday Morningâ€ from 1995â€™s Tragic Kingdom. Drummer Adrian Youngâ€™s set was decked out with rasta-colored lights and part of their visuals during the set were behind-the-scenes with the band, like with their kids or Stefani wearing a robe and looking for some hairspray.
â€œThe thing is, I need you to sing with me tonight. I have to have you sing with me tonight,â€ said Stefani sweetly before the band started â€œUnderneath It All.â€ This band, out of all the bandâ€™s weâ€™ve ever seen ever, and thatâ€™s a bold statement we know, has the least amount of worries about their audience singing along. If they just stopped playing completely, thousands of voices would be chiming in with their lyrics. For all you hardcore No Doubt fans out there, on top of â€œPush and Shove,â€ â€œSunday Morning,â€ and â€œUnderneath It All,â€ the band performed â€œEx-Girlfriend,â€ â€œItâ€™s My Life,â€ â€œDonâ€™t Speak,â€ â€œJust A Girlâ€ which she dedicated to all her â€œKROQ girlsâ€ and Stefani made the whole audience sing â€œIâ€™m just a girl atâ€¦Acoustic Christmas.â€
â€œGet your hands up in the air,â€ announced Stefani before the band played â€œSpiderwebs.â€ Yeah, sorry weâ€™re not home right, oh wait, no weâ€™re not. Weâ€™re watching No Doubt at Acoustic Christmas.
