LA QUINTA, California – The American Express announced recently that iconic Southern California native Gwen Stefani and three-time GRAMMY Award winning singer/songwriter Darius Rucker are the musical lineup for the 2023 Concert Series on the PGA WEST Stadium Course driving range during the Coachella Valley’s annual PGA Tour golf tournament in January.

Infusing competition with cause, the tournament also has a long history of supporting charities in the Coachella Valley and surrounding areas, contributing to the vibrance and sustainability of the local community. 

Stefani, born and raised in Anaheim; a singer songwriter and charismatic frontwoman of No Doubt, will open The American Express’ Concert Series after the conclusion of second-round play on Friday, Jan. 20.

Rucker, who first achieved musical prominence as the lead singer of Hootie & the Blowfish and has since become a hugely successful Country artist, will take the stage after the tournament’s third round on Saturday, Jan. 21. 

The 64th edition of The American Express will showcase 156 professional golfers and 156 amateurs playing at PGA WEST’s Stadium Course (host course) and Nicklaus Tournament Course and La Quinta Country Club in La Quinta, Calif. from Jan. 19-22, 2023. 

“The Concert Series helps make this tournament one of the most highly anticipated stops on the TOUR,” said Pat McCabe, Executive Director of The American Express. “We’re looking forward to welcoming Gwen and Darius and continuing to grow the more than $63 million in total charitable funds that have been raised through this tournament to support local Coachella Valley-based charity organizations.”
