23rd Anniversary Of No Doubt's First Gig

BSO would like to congratulate No Doubt on their 23rd anniversary of their first official live gig back in Long Beach, California on March 14, 1987. We wish we had footage and photos to show you, but sadly, old school stuff is pretty scarce. Would do anything to go back in time to see them…

After several raucous party performances, No Doubt play their first “official” gig at Fender’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 he’s never been in a band, has long hair and is wearing Mexican sandals. By the summer, Tony, an organized perfectionist, becomes the band’s unofficial manager.
