On this day, March 14 1987, No Doubt performed their first live gig at Fenders Ballroom in Long Beach, California. No Doubt played along side 14 other bands including The Untouchables, Instep, The Crooks, The Upbeats, The Subways and more. Above is the actual poster from the Scooterville Live Aid show! They are such an incredible live band and we cannot wait for another 24 years of shows! Thank you No Doubt for all that you have given us fans since 1987 and we are so excited for the new eras!
After several raucous party performances, No Doubt play their first â€œofficialâ€ gig at Fenderâ€™s Ballroom in Long Beach, California; the band was second on a bill of 14 with The Untouchables headlining. Tony, a high-school junior, was one of several hundred people watching. Shortly thereafter, he tries out. Band accepts him even though heâ€™s never been in a band, has long hair and is wearing Mexican sandals. By the summer, Tony, an organized perfectionist, becomes the bandâ€™s unofficial manager.
