Tom Sandoval’s longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix, and his ex Kristen Doute came out to support the “Vanderpump Rules” star during a live performance of his new single, “Superstars.”

Madix, 37, Doute, 40, and her podcast co-host beau, Luke Broderick, sat close together as Sandoval, 39, belted out the groovy, original track alongside his 11-piece cover band, Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras. 

“This is a special night and I’m so excited,” Sandoval exclusively told Page Six ahead of his set on Wednesday night at TomTom in West Hollywood. 

“I originally got into this band because I kind of gave up on doing original music,” he continued. “And that’s just because of how much time it takes and how much of a perfectionist I am and the insecurity that comes with putting out your own music versus playing covers that everybody knows.” 

Attendees certainly enjoyed Sandoval’s lively renditions of Rick Springfield’s “Jesse’s Girl” and more retro hits. While performing “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers, he sauntered out into the audience to hand the mic to fans, eager to sing along. 

At one point, he notably gave Doute a chance to let her voice be heard, proving how far the exes have come since their 2013 split. Today, Madix — who has been dating Sandoval since 2014 — and Doute are good friends, even after the latter departed “Pump Rules” in 2020. 

The ladies’ tight bond was on full display as they cheered Sandoval on during “Superstars,” dancing together and recording videos on their phones to remember the moment.

The gig came after a viewing party for Season 10’s fourth episode, which featured the tune’s live debut at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, Calif., filmed in July 2022. 

But before “Superstars” made its way to the stage, it was crafted in an iconic Los Angeles recording studio. 

“We actually recorded ‘Superstars’ at Energy Studios,” Sandoval told Page Six. “The No Doubt ‘Tragic Kingdom’ album was made there, Linkin Park’s ‘Hybrid Theory,’ all these amazing works. It was incredible.” 

Despite previous insecurities, Sandoval is now inspired to release more original singles —especially after working with producer Stavros and songwriter Matt Hartke. 

“You have a song that you’ve known and grown up with, it just seems right,” he explained, noting The Most Extras’ penchant for performing classics from the ‘80s, ‘90s and 2000s.

“That’s the right way to do that song. But when you’re writing stuff yourself, it can be very, ‘Is this right? Is this the right way to do this? We should change this,’” the musician elaborated. 

“And then after you’ve had it for a while, you start second-guessing yourself.’ “But I’m just glad that I was able to get past that and also work with a great team.” 

In addition to Madix and Doute, Sandoval’s best friend and business partner, Tom Schwartz, their boss, Lisa Vanderpump, her husband, Ken Todd, “Pump Rules” mainstay Peter Madrigal and celebrity jewelry Kyle Chan were also among the packed crowd at Wednesday’s event. 

“Superstars” is available on Apple Music, Spotify and all major streaming platforms. 

“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m ET on Bravo.
