Set to hit these shores beginning March 18 in Sacramento, Calif., the tour, presented by MTV's "Total Request Live," is scheduled to wrap May 10 in Dallas.
Prior to the tour, No Doubt perform Feb. 26 in Long Beach, Calif., with Weezer and Offspring, as part of the Recording Artists Coalition benefit concerts. Before hitting America, the group will play two international dates: March 14 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and March 16 at a festival in Caracas, Venezuela. A handful of festival dates will also be sprinkled throughout the rest of the tour.
Fellow new wave-inspired act the Faint have been drafted as the tour's opening act. The Omaha, Neb,-based group has been generating a fair amount of indie buzz with its Saddle Creek album, "Dance Macabre." On the heels of a mostly sold-out club tour earlier this winter, the Faint is scheduled to perform at San Francisco's Noise Pop festival, which runs Feb. 26-March 3.
Tour updates will be posted on No Doubt's official Web site. As previously reported, the group will also perform this weekend as part of the Super Bowl's pre-game festivities.
"Rock Steady" debuted at No. 9 on The Billboard 200 and is currently at No. 14 in its 11th week. The single "Hey Baby" featuring Bounty Killer is No. 9 on The Billboard Hot 100.
