“With a set list that featured her solo hits like the Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 “Hollaback Girl” and “Wind It Up,” fans got to feast on songs from all three of her albums, including her latest release, This Is What the Truth Feels Like. Stefani even included No Doubt hit songs like “Don’t Speak,” “Underneath It All” and “Hella Good,” just to name a few,” stated billboard.com.
The concert not only consisted of having “Young the Giant” performing, but both Eve and Blake Shelton made a special appearance.

Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, which is now closed because the Irvine Companie’s Los Olivos apartments will begin the second phrase of their building, was formerly Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. It is located in Irvine, CA. “Built in the 1980’s it was later opened in 1981 and has a huge seating capacity of 16,085,” stated irvineamp.com. Seating included five sections. Starting closest to the stage is a pit area, orchestra, loge, terrace, and lawn.
“As well the outdoor events, the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre has hosted some of the biggest musical artists on the planet, including Michael Jackson who performed three times and Ozzy Osbourne who recorded his 1982 tour outing at the amphitheatre,” added irvineamp.com.
The Pacific Symphony Orchestra has also used the Amphitheater during the summer since 1997.
