Taking over the main stage in full effect, Gwen Stefani and co. marked their first live performance in over nine years with their reunion at the annual music and arts festival in California.

They kicked things off with their classic hits ‘Hella Good’, ‘Sunday Morning’ ‘Ex-Girlfriend’ and their famous Talk Talk cover of ‘It’s My Life’. Midway through their set, Stefani announced the arrival of the ‘Vampire’ singer and the two jumped into a rendition of the band’s 2000 track ‘Bathwater’ from their fourth LP ‘Return Of Saturn’.

“Olivia Rodrigo, why do good girls like me and you always want the bad boys?” Stefani asked the pop singer during the duet. Rodrigo sported a white tank top with I heart ND printed on it with a pair of black trousers and a funky updo.

Elsewhere in their set, they performed oldies such as ‘Different People’ for the first time in over 15 years and ‘Total Hate ’95’ for the first time since 2012.

Stefani previously revealed she has regrets about the later years of No Doubt’s time together, saying she wishes she had “just been with my family”.

The band have no events scheduled for after the festival’s second weekend, although Stefani said earlier this week that she was “open to anything” – despite there being “no concrete plans for touring or new music”.

“Well, I don’t have a crystal ball,” the frontwoman continued. “Most things have surprised me in life. One of the things I’ve learned is to be present in the moment and try to absorb what’s happening around me instead of looking ahead.”

In other Coachella news, Grimes’ DJ set at the festival was mired by technical difficulties with some fans have calling the set “the worst in the history of Coachella”.

Sublime – now fronted by late singer Bradley Nowell’s son Jakob –put on a show honouring Bradley, during which the band performed ‘Romeo’ live for the first time in 25 years.

Nowell also played with his father’s custom guitar and Mesa Boogie amp and Gaugh played with his OG signature green drum kit marking the first time the drum kit and guitar were on the same stage since the last Sublime tour in 1996 (per Variety).

Meanwhile, The Last Dinner Party stunned fans with their debut festival set. The British quintet took over the Gobi stage at the annual music and arts festival, performing their hit tracks along with a few new songs adorned in their signature Victorian frocks.

Elsewhere, Vampire Weekend closed out their last minute Coachella set with a surprise appearance from Paris Hilton and Abraham Lincoln during their country “Cocaine Cowboys” medley. For more live updates as it happens, check out NME’s liveblog for Coachella 2024 here.
