No Doubt Tackles Tix

No Doubt’s taken some steps to ensure its biggest fans get first dibs on good seats for the band’s upcoming reunion tour that kicks off in May.

About 1,500 prime seats at each venue on the tour, promoted by Live Nation, have been reserved for distribution through a fan club on the band’s Web site.

Fans who’ve registered for the $15 club will have the option to purchase up to four tickets, which must be picked up with valid ID immediately before entering the venue night of show. Fans purchasing top-tier tickets online will also gain access to download the band’s complete discography.

The procedure follows a system used by Nine Inch Nails, which has the same manager as No Doubt in Jim Guerinot.
