No Doubt Announces 2009 Summer Tour With Special Guest Paramore
The Sounds, Janelle Monae and Bedouin Soundclash To Support on Select Dates

LOS ANGELES, CA – Grammy-winning rock band No Doubt announced plans for their 2009 summer tour today.

The band will launch their highly anticipated tour this May, playing outdoor amphitheaters and arenas throughout the summer.  Singer Gwen Stefani said, “The whole reason for going on this tour was to have fun, try on all our favorite songs again and to get inspired to make new music. It feels good to be all together again.”

No Doubt has selected Paramore as the special guest for the tour.  “What a dream tour! We couldn’t be more excited to kick off 2009 by touring with a band like No Doubt,” said Paramore singer Hayley Williams.

“Get there early…this is going to a be a great night from the moment the lights go down,” said bassist Tony Kanal.

The third act that will open the show will be shared among The Sounds, Janelle Monae and Bedouin Soundclash. Check your local listings for more specific information.

“Now that five years have passed, the excitement level for us is extremely high. We are so fresh and ready!  I feel like a kid again when rehearsing these songs,” said drummer Adrian Young.

The 2009 No Doubt Summer Tour will be produced by Live Nation and will include stops in both the U.S. and Canada.   The band last toured in 2004, co-headlining with Blink 182.

Tour dates and on sale information will be announced soon.  Check for the most up to date tour news.


My excitement is overwhelming me. I’ve seen Paramore twice now, and do not underestimate them. They tear it up. We also checked out The Sounds at Webster Hall a few years back – they leave little to be desired as well.


(Thanks to Chad for tipping me on the update!)

*Edit/Update* The Sounds’ write on their MySpace page:

Hey there everyone!  We are very happy to be able to finally tell you all that we will be going on tour with No Doubt this spring/summer in the USA starting in May. We have to jump off of a few dates in Canada and a few USA cities, as we already have festival and touring commitments back in Europe, but we will be doing most of the tour.  We are also going to hit a few cities on our own around the tour, so if we aren’t coming with No Doubt, we’ll try and get there on our own.
