No Doubt performed together for the first time since 2015 during the first weekend of Coachella on Saturday. Gwen Stefani and company welcomed Olivia Rodrigo for a performance of “Bathwater.”

No Doubt’s last performance came on September 11, 2015 at Riot Fest Chicago. Coachella landed the group as a continuation of the festival’s penchant for reunions along with Jakob Nowell, the son of Stefani’s late collaborator Bradley Nowell, fronting Sublime at Coachella 2024 with original members drummer Bud Gaugh and bassist Eric Wilson.

The first portion of the set also contained No Doubt’s 2003 cover of Talk Talk’s “It’s My Life” and Rock Steady hit “Hey Baby.” The band also broke out “Different People,” from their landmark October 1995 album, Tragic Kingdom, for the first time since 2009. “Total Hate ‘95” — off No Doubt’s March 1995 LP, The Beacon Street Collection (the studio version featured Bradley Nowell) was played for the first time since 2012, as per SetlistFM stats.

Following the latter, No Doubt welcomed Olivia Rodrigo, who recently described Stefani as a “prime example” of a “true artist,” joined the band for “Bathwater.” Stefani and Rodrigo traded verses on the track from No Doubt’s 2000 album, Return of Saturn, and came together on the chorus.
