Winter 1997
No Doubt begins their third headlining tour, this time at enormadome venues. It was either stripped-down clubs or Spinal Tap, jests Tom. They went with the classic comedy and the Cirque de Soliel sets.

Tragic Kingdom reaches No. 1 on Billboard's International Album Eurochart, and was a Top 5 album in the U.K., Canada, Germany, Australia, Norway, Spain, Portugal, New Zealand, Denmark and Finland.

January 1997
No Doubt attends American Music Awards after being nominated for Favorite New Artist Pop/Rock. Band's super excited even if they don't win. "Not bad, Best New Artist and we've been around for 10 years," marvels Gwen.

February 1997
No Doubt attends Grammy Awards after being nominated for Best Rock Album and Best New Artist.

Band's super excited even if they don't win. They perform "Spiderwebs" live.

All-time touring highlight, No Doubt plays a sold-out 3,000-capacity show in Israel -- including members of the two opposing religious groups. On their day off, they tour Jerusalem and swim in the Dead Sea.

March 1997
No Doubt celebrates Tenth Anniversary!!!

April 11, 1997
No Doubt perform the reggae-tinged "Sunday Morning" on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno; although the lyrics are once again about their break up, it's Tony's favorite No Doubt song.

May 1997
Rolling Stone finally puts No Doubt on the cover--the ENTIRE band in white surgical garb. The writer announces "everything (Gwen) says is true" and that their pop music is "rousing and potent."

July 1997
Tony's life takes on new meaning after meeting his all-time music hero Prince, or as he is now called, The Artist formerly known as Prince. After the Purple One checked out No Doubt's Minneapolis show, he invited the band back to Paisley Park to jam. How cool is that?

Summer 1997
Rarely seeing a Sunday morning at home, No Doubt continue to see the world from a stage. Tragic Kingdom, still in the Top 50 at 80-plus weeks on the charts, sells seven million in the U.S. and eleven million worldwide. No Doubt, their first record, has now sold around 250,000 copies.

Sept. 4, 1997
They finally win. "Don't Speak" gives No Doubt the opportunity to speak as they enthusiastically accept the Best Group Video statue at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Fall 1997
No Doubt plays across Europe, India, Singapore and South America. Tragic Kingdom continues to sell big, reaching eight million in the U.S. and fourteen million worldwide.

Oct. 21, 1997
Interscope re-releases 10-song Beacon Street Collection as part of the back catalog.

November 1997
No Doubt releases Live In The Tragic Kingdom, a 92-minute, live-performance video shot at The Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim, the arena owned by Magic Kingdom heads Disneyland. Plenty of rock poses, good cheer and sweat.

More good tidings, No Doubt's version of the Vandals joyful carol "Oi To The World" -- recorded in one day while on tour -- appears on the album A Very Special Christmas III; proceeds benefiting the Special Olympics.

Early 1998
No Doubt takes some much needed time off, adjusts to being home, step across the Orange County border, and settle into new addresses within the L.A. County line; two now reside in Long Beach and two in Los Feliz. They stop eating at fast food eateries—except Tony. Renting out a Hollywood Hills home, the band begins writing songs for their forthcoming CD—finding their direction; as Gwen said: "We didn't really know what kind of music we were gonna write because it had been so long and we kind of out grew our old style." Gwen, now very in love, has plenty to sing about.

March 7, 1998
They win again—this time at the California Music Awards (formerly the BAMMIES). Gwen gets a statue for Outstanding Female Vocalist Statewide, and the band walks off with Outstanding Group Statewide.

April 1998
For the Stormy Weather '98 concert at L.A.'s Wiltern Theater, a benefit for Don Henley's Walden Woods Foundation, Gwen sings two torch songs: "I Can Dream, Can't I," made popular by the Andrew Sisters, and Elvis Costello's "Almost Blue."

August 1998
Gwen's a waitress—just for a day. She appears in an apron in a Rufus Wainwright video shot at her house. A week later, Gwen (without the apron) hosts a birthday bash for Tony and Adrian at her house. Many musician friends dance to loud rock music until 3 a.m. The excitement proves to be too much for Adrian; around 4 a.m. he re-decorates Gwen's front yard with regurgitated petits fours.

September 1998
The band attends the MTV Video Music Awards—purely for fun. Gwen looks smashing in her blue Smurfs fuzzy bra top and matching blue-dyed hair

October 1998
Straying for a brief afternoon, Gwen records a duet with Brian Setzer for his new album, Dirty Boogie. The track, made famous by Ann Margaret and Elvis Presley is called "You're the Boss."

October 31, 1998
Boo! Trick or treats were courtesy of Offspring's Dexter Holland. Gwen was a vampire, Tony was a bag of French fries (he loves those things), Adrian was a nun, Tom was something politically incorrect (we're not saying), and No Doubt horn player Gabe McNair was a skeleton. It was a hoot!

November 1998
No Doubt celebrates their childhood in song for the Rugrats soundtrack. In the fall, the band records "I Throw My Toys Around" with musical hero Elvis Costello, who also wrote (with his wife) and produced the song for the movie.
The band continues writing songs for their forthcoming CD and searches for the right producer.

Dec. 31, 1998
The band throws a HUGE New Year's Eve bash at Gwen's house for their friends, friends of friends, and musician- and actor-friends of friends. A star-studded affair with the likes of Tommy Lee, Ben Stiller, the Chili Peppers, Beck, plus many more. It goes into the wee hours. Adrian, once again, is plagued with ill feelings, but waits until the ride home.
After numerous attempts to find the right producer, the band finally decides on Glen Ballard, with Jack Joseph Puig as the man with the right mix and Alain Johannes (of Eleven fame) as the engineer. The magic (and long process) occurs at two Los Angeles studios—Ocean Way and Royaltone. According to Gwen, the band has three goals: to grow as songwriters, keep it simple and clean instrumentally with no tricks, and to be spontaneous.

According to Gwen, the band has three goals: to grow as songwriters, keep it simple and clean instrumentally with no tricks, and to be spontaneous.

Feb. 22, 1999
Adrian's Schwing Magazine Charity Golf Tournament raises money for a Hollywood charity. Out for a putt and a swing, members from the Offspring, NOFX, Smashmouth and Cherry Poppin' Daddies. Earlier in '99, Adrian and Vandals drummer Joe Escalante started Schwing, an alternative golf publication through Thrasher. Lotsa musicians and girls in bikinis.

March 1999
RIAA creates a new sales status symbol: the Diamond Award for artists who move more than 10 million copies of a given album in the U.S. Forty-six artists were responsible for the 62 best-selling albums of all time... and in the mix was No Doubt for Tragic Kingdom (at 10 million!).
Band says "yes" to hip movie Go and delivers "New" for soundtrack. Finally, new music from No Doubt, although it's not so new ("New" was the first song the band wrote after Tragic Kingdom). The song, produced by Jerry Harrison, is received at radio with enthusiasm.

April 1999
Tom remarks: "This is our eighth week recording... and probably our 80th week working on this record."
Unable to wait until Gwen finishes vocals for a track, Maggen, the singer's 14-year-old dog, went poo-poo on the studio carpet. Gwen cleans it with paper towels and disposed of the mess in the garbage bin next to the studio, locking herself into the stinky gated structure in the process. "There I am, standing on top of the garbage bin that smells awful while everyone is inside a sound-proof studio."

May 1999
A whopping 17 songs are recorded—the band is really excited. It's a new sound for the band. One they have a hard time describing—or pinpointing into a style. Tony thinks there's a pervasive early '80s New Wave thing reminiscent of what they grew up on, and a very organic rock '70s sparse sound. The songs are somewhere between rock, pop and reggae. (Tony admits that all reggae they've attempted in the past sucks; "We've finally hit the right groove. Now we don't have to qualify what we've done.")
Burning London—A Clash Tribute is released. It includes No Doubt's cover of "Hateful," which is produced by David Kahne and includes guest vocals, growls and hand gestures by Billy Idol. Proceeds are donated to an L.A. youth shelter.

June 1999
Gwen adds vocals to Fishbone's cover of Sly and the Family Stone's "Everybody is a Star" for the Fishbone and Familyhood Nextperience tribute album (out March 2000).

July 1999
No Doubt completes mixing at Ocean Way with Jack Joseph Puig. Band is really excited. Record company is really excited. If the fans knew, they would be excited. Then the band decides to record two more songs; now they are the only ones excited. Tour plans for fall are put on hold.

August 1999
Band enters the studio again to record new songs for the as-yet-untitled new album on Interscope Records.
Tragic Kingdom continues to sell big, reaching 15 million worldwide.
No Doubt hosts their second annual co-birthday bash for Tony and Adrian (who sports a pink mohawk for the party) at Adrian's home in Lakewood, California. Celebrating the dynamic duo's special day: members from 311, Rage Against the Machine, and the Vandals, Perry Farrell, actor Vince Vaughn, and... well, more rock and movie stars than the neighbors liked. It was a long and festive night.

Sept. 30, 1999
No Doubt kicks off an eight-city West Coast club tour in San Diego in full pop gear: Tony and Tom wear red JUMPsuits, the horn section in lime green, Gwen in bubblegum pink (including her feathered hair), and Adrian shirtless and in boxers. The jaunt was appropriately dubbed "Pop Smart" and "Pop Start" by two fans who screamed in joy over the new pop songs at the band's L.A. show.

Oct. 9, 1999
On the final night of No Doubt's club tour, in a tender moment at The Fillmore in San Francisco, Adrian lures his girlfriend Nina to the stage, and before the thousand-plus fans, gets down on one knee, professes his love and then proposes. Nina shakes her head "yes" and the two exit the stage in each other's arms. The band, moved to tears, finishes the set with Vandals drummer Josh Freese covering for Adrian.

Winter 1999
Final touches are made to the as yet untitled new record. Even more recording, mixing, and mastering to make it just right.

Dec. 5, 1999
No Doubt attends the VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards at New York's fashionable 26th Street Armory. The very fashionable band is nominated for Most Stylish Video, and Gwen—proudly displaying her multi-colored braces—is nominated for Most Fashionable Female Artist. The band walks away with the statue for Most Stylish Video for "New." Orthodontically-challenged teens everywhere proudly smile a toothy grin.

Dec. 31, 1999
Way to ring in the millennium!! No Doubt played at one of the biggest parties in the world: Times Square. To be exact, the MTV New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square. The first band to play MTV in the new millennium, No Doubt took the stage a few minutes after midnight, performing a festive rendition of "It's the End of the World (And I Feel Fine)" by REM, the new skool and new first single "Ex-Girlfriend" to appease the millions of waiting fans, and the old skool "Spiderwebs."

Jan. 5, 2000
No Doubt is shot—but it’s all good. The band is shot by photographer David LaChappelle for their new album, drum roll please, Return of Saturn.

Jan. 16, 2000
The first No Doubt wedding: Adrian and Nina happily make the commitment at Adrian’s home in Southern California while family and close friends (including members of the Vandals and Sugar Ray) watched and cried. A true tight-knit group, Gwen serves as a bridesmaid while Tony and Tom stand as groomsmen.

Jan. 24-26, 2000
The video for "Ex-Girlfriend," directed by Hype Williams, is shot

Feb. 1, 2000
"Ex-Girlfriend," the first—and extremely anticipated single—from Return of Saturn, will be released to radio. The band waits for the day when all the planets aligned in the… you get the point. The accompanying video will be seen on millions of TVs the following week.

March 2000
No Doubt set to pack their bags and get their feet wet. The band will hit the road for an intimate three-week club tour in the States followed by a European tour in April and May. At this point they plan to take a couple deep breathes and begin a thorough tour of the U.S. and the rest of the world. Who knows, maybe Saturn will follow.

April 2000
The very down-to-Earth yet extremely out there Return of Saturn will be released April 10 internationally and April 11 in the States. Produced by Glen Ballard, mixed by Jack Joseph Puig and recorded by Alain Johannes, the 14-song disc encompasses the band’s eclectic tastes: New Wave, reggae, pop and rock. Radio programmers across the country predict a minimum of 14 hits.

The 5th Album

The first single from Rock Steady was "Hey Baby" , then "Hella Good", "Underneath It All" and at last "Running"
