No Doubt to return for 2009 tour


No Doubt are to reform for a tour in 2009 as they put the finishing touches to their first studio album in seven years.

The group, led by Gwen Stefani, revealed the tour plans in a live chat on their website.

Stefani said it would be "so inspiring to get out there and play all those songs again".

The group have not played live since 2004 and their last studio album was 2001's Rock Steady.

"I have cabin fever. Maybe we should play some shows or something," guitarist Tom Dumont said in the conversation.

Stefani answered: "I think we should go out now. I don't think we should wait. Pack up the babies and get a bunch of nannies."

No Doubt have been in the studio on and off throughout 2008, but Stefani's participation has been limited since giving birth to her second son in August.

Since the group's last album, Stefani has released two critically-acclaimed solo albums, while the other members have pursued solo and session work as well as producing.
