Girls Say, Girls Say, Hey Baby, Hey Baby, Hey

Tuesday night's sold out No Doubt show was rock steady. After playing 52 shows on their reunion tour, four of which were in Irvine, they still rocked their hometown: the incomparable County of Orange. My family and I made the short trek over to the Verizon Ampitheatre and anticipated a magical evening. Openers The Sounds and Katy Perry got my sister (Gazette writer, Gracy Wilkins) and I on our feet dancing. And then the lights went low, the moon rose up and Spiderwebs blessed my eager eardrums.

I'd been waiting for this moment all summer! Since I first saw them perform in 2000 on their Return of Saturn tour (remember the pink hair?) with Lit and The Black Eyed Peas (pre-Fergalicious) I have kept wanting more. I mean it's Gwen Stefani, guys wants to date her and girls wants to be her. She is gorgeous and amazingly talented! The band's energy was unbelievable... I can't wait for their next album. The set closed with my favorite song, Sunday Morning, off of one of my favorite albums of all time: Tragic Kingdom. What a great night to spend with Orange Countians and one of the OC's greatest bands. Nothing gets me more excited than hometown heroes; well, maybe Kevin Bacon... but we'll save that for another day.
