“I’m gonna miss Adam for sure, but I just feel so grateful to be there,” Stefani told RADIO.COM’s Carson and Amber at Alice 105.9 about what it will be like to have Levine gone.
When asked if doing the show without Levine would be bittersweet, Stefani responded, “That is exactly how it feels.” She continues, “It’s interesting to think of how it will feel without him.”
Stefani has a busy summer ahead of her, between her Las Vegas residency and her continuing role as a coach on “The Voice.”
“I’m fired up. I’m ready to go, and we’re starting to shoot in three weeks,” she said. So how will Stefani gear up for a show that’s totally different from what she’s used to? “It is weird, but I know that these kinds of things happen, and they evolve,” she says, keeping a positive attitude. “It’s gonna be awesome.”
Stefani also opened up about having her kids on the road with her. Turns out, all of the costume changes, lights, and production of the Vegas show make it more fun for her kids to be involved, too. "Doing the costume changes and being able to have the little breaks in between...Zuma's back there, my son, and he takes me on and off stage."
When asked about how she navigates a Vegas residency and finding time to be home, she reveals that it really just depends. "I'm doing a Wednesday, Friday, Saturday," she says of her Vegas shows, "But I do [traveling home> different every time. Just depends if I have the kids or not."
The "Hollaback Girl" singer also reveals that her Vegas shows are even more different than the ever-changing shows she's done in the past. "It's been an evolution from the very start," she said.
The main difference? Her band shows were a little more simplistic than what she does now. "Being in No Doubt, I never even did a costume change," she reveals. The Vegas shows pack more of a production punch in a way that her older material never did. "It's more indulgent production-wise and with No Doubt, that wasn't what we were. It's just kind of been a fantasy come true to have that kind of thing."
