Coachella has the enviable reputation as a place where vintage acts put aside their differences, bands bury the hatchet, legends return to the spotlight.

Jane’s Addiction, Pixies, Pavement, Rage Against the Machine, Outkast and The Stooges all famously got the bands back together in the California desert.


This year it’s No Doubt’s turn to keep that reputation intact.

The lineup for Coachella 2024 is suitably stacked, with Lana Del Rey, Tyler, The Creator and Doja Cat listed as headliners; and the likes of Peso Pluma, Lil Uzi Vert, Blur, Ice Spice, J Balvin, Jhené Aiko and scores more join the bill.

The big surprise is the inclusion of No Doubt, which is set for a first reunion concert in nine years.

“We’ll see you in the desert this April!!!,” reads a statement on the band’s social accounts, an announcement that’s now trending.

Earlier, Gwen Stefani, bass player Tony Kanal, drummer Adrian Young and guitarist Tom Dumont teased a comeback with a video posted to their socials. “Just a Girl” plays over the clip, in which Stefani reminisces about the good old days. The singer fires off a text to Kanal, and the four bandmates assemble for a Zoom call. “Do you wanna do a show?,” she asks. The answer, as we now know, is a solid yes.

Next year marks the 30th anniversary of No Doubt’s hit third album Tragic Kingdom, which featured breakout singles including “Just a Girl,” “Spiderwebs” and “Don’t Speak,” and which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in Dec. 1996, more than a year after its release.

Last year, “Don’t Speak” entered the Billion Views Club on YouTube, marking the band’s first video — and one of less than 20 released in the 1990s — to reach that milestone. Also in 2023, No Doubt issued their 1995 sophomore LP The Beacon Street Collection on vinyl for the first time.
