No Doubt's Sweet Deal: Buy a Concert Ticket, Get Their Entire Catalog

March 3, 2009 4:13 PM ET

Just in case you needed a little extra incentive to buy tickets for No Doubt's upcoming reunion tour, the band has announced a special deal: they're giving away a free digital download of their entire catalog, from 1992's No Doubt to 2003's greatest hits comp The Singles, to each person who purchases a full-priced ticket. "Since the band is heading back to the road, we wanted to find a cool way to get people listening to our music and stoke them with a great deal at the same time," guitarist Tom Dumont said in a statement. "With this download it's easy for fans to get psyched up to hear our music live once again and that rocks."

Included in the download is the band's cover of Adam & The Ants' "Stand and Deliver," the band's first post-reunion recording that'll make its debut when the band appears on the May 11th episode of Gossip Girl.

So why offer such an incredible deal? Maybe No Doubt are being cautious with the recession expected to cripple the summer touring season or maybe they're rewarding their fans for their patience. Either way, the digital download is a pretty awesome and generous move on the part of Gwen Stefani and crew. There is a small catch, however: The digital download only comes with the purchase of a full-priced, $42.50 ticket and not lower-tiered or lawn tickets.

The band launch their reunion tour with a May 2nd show at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, before heading north on the Garden State Parkway for their headlining slot at the Bamboozle Festival. From there, the band flies back west before beginning the bulk of their tour in Las Vegas on May 16th. Check out all the tour dates here, and for the full contents of the digital download being offered with tix, check below:

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
