After six years of dating, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale and No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani have decided to tie the knot.
Rossdale proposed to Stefani in England on the morning of January 1 and she happily accepted, according to spokespeople for their respective bands. The couple has not set a wedding date.
The two met and began dating while No Doubt were opening for Bush on a spring tour in 1996. Bush were supporting their debut, Sixteen Stone, while No Doubt were promoting their breakthrough second album, Tragic Kingdom. In 2000, Stefani performed live with Bush (see “Gavin Gets Help From Gwen At Bush European Closer” ).
Besides supporting each other’s musical careers, Rossdale and Stefani also are involved in some of the same political causes, including promoting solar energy use and ending oil drilling in the North Sea (see “Gwen, Gavin, Blur Try To Halt U.K. Oil Drilling” ).
