When was the last time No Doubt hit the stage for a rockin’ performance? Well, it’s been quite a while. The band gave one heck of a performance at the Global Citizen Festival on Saturday at Central Park in New York City and even reserved a special surprise for their encore — a kickass rendition of “Message in a Bottle” with Sting himself!
Seriously! Sting — in all his glory and beauty — hit the stage with his sweet guitar and incredible vocals, as if it was not the coolest moment of the entire festival. Typical Sting, right? Watch the performance below:

We forgot how well Gwen Stefani complements Sting’s vocals on this song! The former giving it a more reggae feel that makes us want to cry tears of happiness. Can these two release an album together, please?
Other performers at the Global Citizen Festival included Carrie Underwood, Alicia Keys, The Roots, fun., Tiesto and Jay Z, who was joined by Beyoncé at the close of the concert in an awesome plot twist. But this couple performs together all the time; it’s not as jaw-dropping as Sting.
What did you think of the No Doubt-Sting collaboration? Amazing or amazing?
