Snoop Dogg postpones Hollywood Bowl shows in support of writers’ strike

Snoop Dogg’s summer concerts celebrating the 30th anniversary of his debut studio album, Doggystyle have been postponed, according to reports.

The rapper is said to have made the announcement via Instagram, informing fans and followers in a video that the concerts, originally scheduled for June 27 and June 28 at the Hollywood Bowl, have now been pushed back to October 20 and 21.

“Hollywood Bowl! June 26 and 27, we gotta move that date! Me and Dr Dre, we stand in solidarity with the writers, so what we’re gonna do, we gonna push it back to October 20 and Oct. 21.”

The post was accompanied by the caption: “Due to the ongoing WGA strike and the DGA and SAG/AFTRA negotiations, we have decided to postpone the shows scheduled for June 27 and June 28 at the Hollywood Bowl.”

Snoop Dogg concluded the caption by sharing his support with those on strike: “We stand in solidarity with the unions and are hopeful that the AMPTP will negotiate fair deals as soon as possible and everybody can get back to work.”

The West Coast legends will team up with conductor Derrick Hodge and the ReCollective Orchestra to perform special renditions of Doggystyle cuts.

Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre also plan to release a new album titled Missionary later this year. 

Tickets for the Doggystyle concerts are still on sale and previously purchased tickets for shows in June will be honoured in October.
