Hella Good

I had a big dose of spontaneous fun tonight! Erecca, my friend from work, asked me if I wanted to go to the No Doubt concert with her. Her friend couldn't go in the last minute because her mom was sick and in the hospital. Of course I felt bad for her friend. But of course I said yes! I've never seen No Doubt in concert before and who am I to turn it down. :) Besides, this was their first tour together in a few years, since Gwen Stefani's solo albums. It's good to see them back together! We left around 7pm from my house. There was traffic on and off down the I-15. We missed the junction with 805-south, so we were on the 5-south all the way down in National City and fast approaching Mexico... we got worried and turned around and went back and found the 805. Driving into Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre had the usual two miles of stop and go traffic, since there is only one way into the venue. We got in and Paramour was finishing up their set. The line to the ladies facilities was extremely long, so we waited a while until it was short. Then we went for it. I just got into a stall when I heard screaming, then "Spiderwebs". We got back into our seats in time for the end of "Spiderwebs". I've never been to a concert in which I stood up the whole time. But nobody around me sat down, and I wanted to see! Gwen Stefani and the boys didn't disappoint. They were high energy and fun. The set was high in style and lighting was great. They wore matching clothes in the first half. Gwen changed into a different outfit for the second half. The people were dancing up and down and really enjoying themselves. Todd gave me two cookies to bring and I shared one with Erecca. The set list:
  • Spiderwebs
  • Hella Good
  • Underneath It All
  • Excuse Me Mr.
  • Ex-Girlfriend
  • End It On This
  • Simple Kind of Life
  • Bathwater
  • Guns of Navarone
  • New
  • Hey Baby
  • Running
  • Different People
  • Don’t Speak
  • It’s My Life
  • Just A Girl
  • Rock Steady
  • Stand and Deliver
  • Sunday Morning
I got home right before midnight. What a spontaneously fun night! It's been a while since I've had this much unplanned fun. :p

  2. Super cool! We saw them in 1997 right when they hit it big and I have to say I would rather see them now. We didn't know all the songs at that point and I think we would enjoy it more now.

  3. Oh, so fun! Sorry that the other girl couldn't go, but great that you could so that Erecca didn't have to miss out on it too!
    It would be so much fun to see No Doubt, I think Gwen Stefani is very talented. Great pics too!
