No Doubt No Longer Have Tour Party Room
No Doubt's party room has been turned into a creche.
The chart-topping group - made up of Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Adrian Young and Tom Dumont - are set to go on tour again following the release of their new album "Push and Shove," and they admit their partying days are a long behind them now they all have young families.
"I can't wait to get out there and play this (record) live. Everybody has their own tour bus now and we have a traveling caravan. So when we get to the venue the nannies set up the romper room, which is the room that used to be our backstage party room, with the DJ and the bar. That's gone now and it's for the kids," said Gwen, who has sons Kingston, six, and Zuma, four, with husband Gavin Rossdale.
"Things have changed since we last put a record out. We now go on tour with our families. But then we've always been a big family anyway. We've just expanded," Tony added to The Sun.
Gwen, 42, enjoyed worldwide solo success over the past several years during her time away from the band but admits being back with the group is where she feels most comfortable.
"It's such a vulnerable situation to put yourself in. And I never need to do that or want to do it again. I'm happy being in No Doubt. And it's nice to have a record where there's no fat on it. We've not pumped this up with album tracks. There aren't any songs that I would want to edit off. It has a really good balance of song types. I love it. I've listened to it a billion times. It's always on repeat," she said.
