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 -from nodoubt.com
If only we had some photos and videos from this performance! It’s so amazing and inspiring how far ND has come from that very first gig. All the fans are so incredibly thankful for everything No Doubt has given us and we look forward to even more music and memories with the new album and tour this year. Happy Anniversary to No Doubt!!!!
