Oh my gawd!!! My inner 15 year old self completely freaked out last night because I got to see my all time favorite performer Gwen Stefani. I waited seven long years for her to tour again and it was well worth it. I have seen her five other times with her band No Doubt and her solo tours, but last night was my favorite concert. The compilation of her new and old songs were on point and the energy level was amazing. Eve as an opener was a perfect recipe to set the mood of the night. Plus they sang “Let me blow your mind” and “Rich girls” together which was such a treat.
I remember being a Freshman in high school and while my friends were all listening to gangster rap or boy bands, I discovered this alternative ska music that I connected with. Gwen had this angsty staccato sound juxtaposed with soft melody and a kick ass band to support her that sounded so cool. She sang about heartbreak, women empowerment, or just fun dance songs that reflected what was going on in her life. Over the twenty plus years in the music industry I have continued to relate to her music and I am a super fan!
I am excited to see what is in store for her future tours. If you haven’t had a chance to experience her live in concert, I completely endorse it. I was a sweaty mess and loved every minute of it.
