This year's Global Citizen festival hosted dozens of musicians, celebrities, activists, and world leaders. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi hosted the festival and introduced the musical acts.
No Doubt's headlining set featured high-energy performances of the band's hits from throughout their career, but especially heavy on material from their Diamond-certified 1995 album, Tragic Kingdom. Their set was tight and their chemistry was electric, with "Spiderwebs" and "Just A Girl" acting as singalong standouts.
The major highlight came during their encore, though. Gwen Stafani and Co. were joined by Sting to play a cover of "Message In A Bottle," the opening track on The Police's 1979 Reggatta de Blanc. The cover was a massive crowd-pleaser and got the whole audience singing along. Stefani's vocals could be a touch overpowering for the subtlety the song requires, but the performance is too much fun for it to matter. Watch all the videos above.
