No Doubt To Reunite on "Gossip Girl" in May

February 27, 2009 1:09 PM ET

Before embarking on their reunion tour, No Doubt will reunite on an episode of Gossip Girl on May 11th. Why Gossip Girl? Probably because there's no more TRL and that entire audience has emigrated to GG. According to the No Doubt Website, Gwen Stefani and the rest of the gang will perform a cover of Adam & The Ants' "Stand And Deliver," from the new wavers' Prince Charming album.

We're not sure in what context the band will appear, whether they'll be integrated into the show's plot or just appear in concert. Gossip Girl lacks a common venue like Beverly Hills 90210's Peach Pit, which once hosted the Flaming Lips, so it's possible Blair, Serena and the rest of those Upper East Siders will spend that episode at a No Doubt concert, a plot line stolen directly out of Season 6 of Dawson's Creek, when that whole WB crew went to see the band perform. Don't ask us how we know these things.

No Doubt will perform their first reunion show together at East Rutherford, New Jersey's Bamboozle East on May 3rd before their tour kicks off officially on May 16th with a special performance at Tiger Woods's Tiger Jam benefit in Las Vegas. Paramore will serve as No Doubt's opener on the tour. Get all the tour dates here.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
