Almost Acoustic Xmas

Hello! No Doubt played Almost Acoustic Christmas on Sunday night, and they were completely awesome, as usual! My friends at EIT captured and uploaded the live web stream to YouTube:

No Doubt’s performance is receiving rave reviews! This Los Angeles Magazine article is entitled “U2 Who? No Doubt Brings Down the House at KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas”. In this OC Register article entitled “No Doubt pinch hits with power at Almost Acoustic Christmas concert at the Forum”, they wrote:

“Riding to the rescue came Orange County natives No Doubt, a band that in many ways KROQ made, providing a thrilling finale to a strong installment of the annual two-day holiday show. With an hour in which to cram a dozen songs, No Doubt stuck mostly to fan favorites, opening with “Hella Good” and its call to keep on dancing, and roaring through hits such as “Sunday Morning,” “Underneath It All” and “Just A Girl” in the first half of the set.

No Doubt dressed for the occasion, too. Singer Gwen Stefani looked great in a sequined Santa Claus shirt, green-plaid drop-crotch shorts and knee-high Doc Martens. Guitarist Tom Dumont wore a red string tie with “Seasons Greetings” on its strands, while bassist Tony Kanal’s shirt shouted “Happy (Bleepin’) Holidays” and drummer Adrian Young’s kit was strung with Christmas lights.

But the music was the thing that truly made No Doubt’s set a winner from its fast start to the final run of songs that included “Don’t Speak” and “Spiderwebs.” Stefani had the crowd shout “Get well, Bono!” a few times, and no one seemed disappointed by these pinch-hitters.”
