After releasing his 17th album ‘I Wanna Thank Me’ earlier this year, rap superstar, Snoop Dogg, has announced details of his 2020 UK arena tour and his shows will see him joined by West Coast hip hop stars D12, Warren G, Tha Dogg Pound and Obie Trice – with Irish rap duo Versatile set to playing the opening sets at each of the concerts.
Snoop Dogg is one of the most successful rappers to emerge from the famed West Coast rap scene, which burst into life in the 90s and became one of the world’s most powerful cultural forces.
He released his Dr Dre-produced debut album Doggystyle in 1993, which shot straight to number one in the US charts and spawned some of his biggest hits to date, including Gin and Juice, as well as Who Am I? (What’s My Name?).
He recently covered of Nick Cave’s ‘Red Right Hand’ in conjunction with the new season of BBC’s ‘Peaky Blinders’, which the song is the long-running theme tune of – which will go down well with an expected sell-out date at Birmingham Arena on April 16.
His other arena venues include: 3Arena in Dublin, the SSE Arena, Belfast,
Manchester Arena, Leeds’ First Direct Arena and the O2 in London.
