Mike Ross of the Edmonton Sun was on hand for Gwen Stefani’s concert before almost 15,000 fans in Rexall Place Friday night. Ross writes, “Sounding like Cyndi Lauper and Madonna rolled into one, Stefani’s songs spanned the fun side of pop music, absorbing soul, funk, R&B, hip-hop and rock into its gaping maw of glitzy glamour and slick production. There wasn’t a whole lot of substance beyond the art of the catchy pop hook and booty-shaking groove – and what’s wrong with that? – but some fine musicianship from the backing band offered a little more verve than on record.”
