No Doubt Gets Keys To Hometown Anaheim

Call ’em the little ska-pop band that could, and did. The members of No Doubt will be given a ceremonial key to the city of Anaheim, California at Disneyland on Friday (November 22). Singer Gwen Stefani, guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal, and drummer Adrian Young all grew up and went to school in the Orange County community.

The group has often referenced the region in its albums-1995’s The Beacon Street Collection was named for a house on a street in Anaheim where several of the band members lived during that time; while the follow-up, Tragic Kingdom, is a play on Disneyland’s nickname of “The Magic Kingdom.”

Friday’s presentation will be made by Anaheim mayor Tom Daly. No Doubt appears Friday and Saturday (November 23) at the nearby Long Beach Arena on a bill that also includes Garbage and the Distillers.
