..the 1971 film “Clockwork Orange”! That’s right, after a lengthy hiatus (about 5 years), No Doubt will return in 2009 with a new album and supporting tour, and the tour will be modeled after A Clockwork Orange! This tour is probably one of the most highly anticipated concerts across the country!
Gwen Stefani came up with the Clockwork Orange thing—she started getting into the visuals of those modernist movies from the 60’s. We’ve been looking at tons of art and it’s like this space-age modernism from that decade—it’s retro and modern at the same time, so they are building this crazy stage set that has that vibe. According to band members, they have a bunch of really great artists doing t-shirts and posters that echo that. There’s a whole look for the tour even though there’s not an album yet.
Fans of No Doubt know that this tour will be jam-packed full of their favorites—No Doubt did a survey on their official site a few months ago to see which tracks people wanted to hear most—but without an album, how will the tour look? That remains to be scene, but I can assure you that their last 3 shows of the tour will be held right here in Southern California.
