Where there was once one, now there will be four! So says songstress Gwen Stefani of the bus arrangements for the upcoming No Doubt tour, which kicks off May 2nd in New Jersey.
While the band has many fond memories of late-night after-parties on their single tour bus that they all shared only five years ago — “when you’ve still got the endorphins going from the show, it’s so much fun to all be on the same bus, hanging out and drinking champagne” — Gwen tells SPIN magazine that the “dynamic of the band is different” this time around. “Before, when I was with the guys, I didn’t even have any kids,” she says.
Two baby boys later — Kingston James McGregor, 3 next month, and Zuma Nesta Rock, 8 months – plus her entire entourage of people she deems a must and Gwen’s bus alone is already quite full! “I’ve got two babies, and their nanny, and an assistant, and my security and a hairdresser,” she explains.
“It’s not as much of a party, but that’s what I need in order to perform every night.”
Kingston and Zuma are Gwen’s sons with Gavin Rossdale. Catch No Doubt as they kick-off the Today show summer concert series Friday at 7 a.m.!
