Snoop Dogg Scores Manchester International Gig
Snoop Dogg will cross the pond in July to participate in the U.K.'s Manchester International Festival along with Bjork and Gorillaz front man Damon Albarn. The West Coast MC will also follow that up with a performance at London's Lovebox Festival in the same weekend.
The Doggfather, who releases his eleventh album, 'Doggumentary' on March 29, will perform a one-off show at O2 Apollo Manchester on July 15. He is then scheduled to perform the entirety of his 1993 album 'Doggystyle' at the Lovebox Festival in London, following that.
Snoop is currently in promotional mode for his new album. The rhymer will perform in a webcast concert for 'Late Night with Dave Letterman' on the album's release date, March 29. His upcoming string of U.K. performances are piling up, a year after the ruling that he was officially allowed to enter the country again. He was denied entry to the U.K. in 2008, after getting into a scuffle with cops at Heathrow Airport back in 2006.
