We left LA at 4pm to drive 2 hours to Baskersfield. Did a pitstop at Sonic because because we don't have one near us (their liimeades are yummy!) and then drove right up to the parking lot next door, paid $5 (OMG what a deal!) and parked right in a small little 50-car lot. We both looked at each other and thought...this is most definitely NOT LA!
Walked across the street to the Rabobank arena and walked right up (no line?) and had great seats close enough to the stage on the first row of the balcony.
Hello from Bakersfield!
The Sounds played first, then Paramore did some great songs (Hayley is soo small and young!) and then it was all about No Doubt! Gwen is such an inspiration! She is so beautiful, I love all of her songs, and I think she just has so much charisma, charm, and high energy. How can you not like her?
Paramore opens the No Doubt concert. They're actually a really great band. Good choice!
No Doubt's stage design was very clean, ultra-modern quasi-space age. They played a lot with the lighting and had a huge projector in the back that synched up with each song.
Two large projector screens were at both ends of the stage for close-ups.
We love you Gwen!!
