The two bands discuss the possibility of hitting the road together...

GARBAGE and No Doubt are discussing the possibility of touring together later this year.

The respective singers of each band, Gwen Stefani and Shirley Manson are friends. In recent weeks they met, and came up with the idea of Garbage opening for No Doubt at a number of gigs later this year. No dates are currently confirmed

Writing on the band’s website,, Manson explained: “Gwen Stefani and I also loosely discussed the possibility of Garbage opening some dates for [/a] later on this year. I mean……..I really respect that [a]No Doubt do their own thing and stand out from all the other bands out there right now. I think our fans (and vice versa) would be well into the pairing. We’ll just have to wait and see if it all pans out but I think [/a] and Garbage would make a great bill.”

Garbage have just completed a massive tour of North America and Europe, which included a high profile headline slot at the Glastonbury festival. [a]No Doubt support Green Day at the NME sponsored ‘Move’ festival in Manchester this evening (July 11).
