Gwen Stefani Tickets for Sale

A young and energetic Gwen Stefani moved into the music spotlight in 1987 as the sexy lead singer for the band No Doubt. One of her biggest hits in the '90s with the cross-mixed group of ska-punk and new wave fashion was a single called 'Don't Speak,' one of the tracks from No Doubt's Grammy nominated third album Tragic Kingdom. The video for 'Don't Speak,' a play on inner jealousy in a band, accumulated plenty of play on MTV, giving the group and its lead singer a chance to reach even more fans.

Gwen Renee Stefani (born October 3, 1969) is an American singer and the front woman of the band No Doubt who launched a solo career in late 2004. Stefani was born in Fullerton, California. Her father Denis is Italian and her mother Patti is of Irish and Scottish descent. She has a sister, Jill and two brothers, Eric and Todd. She attended Cal State Fullerton, and in high school she was on the swimming team because she was chubby. Her first job was scrubbing floors at a Dairy Queen and she once worked at a department store. Her brother Eric founded No Doubt in 1986 with his friend John Spence, but eventually left the band to pursue a career in animation on The Simpsons. He was the keyboardist for No Doubt. Gwen became the group's lead singer after original front man John Spence committed suicide in December of 1987.

The band's third album, Tragic Kingdom, took three years to make. During this time, the band almost split up. The album was released in 1995 and spawned several hits, beginning with 'Just a Girl'. Following the success of Tragic Kingdom, Stefani became highly popular and recognizable; the tension this produced with the other members of the band was touched on by their video for the song 'Don't Speak'. Many of the album's songs, including 'Don't Speak', were inspired by Stefani's relationship and breakup with fellow band member Tony Kanal. Gwen had dated Kanal for eight years until he ended the relationship because he needed more space. She slipped into depression after touring for Tragic Kingdom.

Stefani met Bush guitarist Gavin Rossdale in 1996 at a concert she was playing with No Doubt. On September 14, 2002, they were married. Gwen arrived an hour late for her wedding.
