There were huge expectations for the first of No Doubt's four sold-out homecoming shows but the beloved Orange County band rose to the occasion--and then some. Feeding off tremendous crowd energy, No Doubt rocked hits from their nearly two decade-long career, performing with the zeal of an act truly grateful for the global success that started right here. Despite plenty of on-stage fun and audience interaction, the focus remained on the music, which sounded as fresh and ebullient as it did when the band launched an OC ska-punk revolution with their 1995 disc Tragic Kingdom.
