No Doubt will launch the 2012 I Heart Radio Festival in Las Vegas on Sept. 21 and 22, just ahead of the release of the Anaheim band’s first studio album in 11 years, “Push and Shove,” coming Sept. 25.
The bill features a raft of pop, rock, country, R&B, dance and hip-hop acts, also including Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Usher, Green Day, Shakira, Pitbull, Bon Jovi, Lil Wayne, Deadmau5 and Brad Paisley. That puts the rejuvenated No Doubt back amid a phalanx of contemporary pop music hitmakers slated to perform at the MGM Grand Arena.
“It’s hard for me to judge, but I sense that people are genuinely interested” in what No Doubt will be putting forward with “Push and Shove,” guitarist Tom Dumont told Pop & Hiss during a break in rehearsals recently for the I Heart Radio Festival and other high-profile appearances the band will be making in coming days and weeks.
