Our friends NO DOUBT have been added to the night 2 lineup!
This will mark the 6th appearance at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas for the band, who last played in 2012 when they came out as the surprise guest. The band will perform alongside other night 2 bands Alt-J, Imagine Dragons, Interpol, Modest Mouse, Smashing Pumpkins, Tears For Fears, Vance Joy, and Weezer.
“We were talking, and we were talking about how important KROQ has been to us over the years and honestly if it wasn’t for you guys we wouldn’t be where we are today. You guys helped break us, you guys have been so supportive of us and we heard you have a big party coming up, the 25th anniversary of the [Almost] Acoustic Christmas. Honestly, I was going to call you and say ‘Can we get some tickets?’ because we saw the lineup and we were like ‘Wow, we have to come see this show.’ Then we were talking and we’re like ‘What better way to see the show than be on stage and play, so I’m actually calling to see if it’s cool if we come and rock out with you guys.”
“I think you started playing us in ’95 and I think that was actually the first time we played the Acoustic Christmas. I was trying to count how many times we’ve done the Acoustic Christmas or Weenie Roast, and I can’t figure it out. It’s been quite a few times.”
