In addition to his long-anticipated live appearances at Wireless on the 3rd July, Live at the Marquee in Cork on the 5th and Dublin's Olympia on the 6th, controversial rapper Snoop Dogg has announced another lovely pair of gigs in Glasgow (4th July) and London's Shepherd's Bush (9th July). Despite not having a brand new release to plug, you can be sure that the Dogg certainly hasn't had his day and will perform a career-spanning set.
Tickets for the Snoopster go on sale on Friday at 9am.
Snoop Dogg's last album appeared at the tail-end of 2009, entitled "Malice 'n' Wonderland" and his first for the US-based Priority label (he was made an honorary president as well). Although it hasn't performed like his previous releases, the album was given a makeover in March and retitled "More Malice", supported by the singles "I Wanna Rock" and "That Tree". But it's his early work that has earned him his UK reputation - "Doggystyle" still is an important chapter in the history of rap with classic head-nodders like "Gin & Juice", "Doggy Dogg World" and "Who Am I (What's My Name?)". Hard to believe it's 17 years old!
