The shows, commemorating the 30th anniversary of Snoop’s Dre-produced debut album Doggystyle, originally planned to take place at the Hollywood Bowl on June 27 and June 28, have now been pushed back to October 20 and 21, with all previously purchased tickets being valid for the new shows.
Sharing the news on social, Snoop wrote “DOGGYSTYLE 30th ANNIVERSARY POSTPONEMENT. Due to the ongoing WGA strike and the DGA and SAG/AFTRA negotiations, we have decided to postpone the shows.”
Going on to add, “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..”
Reiterating his point in the video-post, Snoop told fans, “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 October 21.”
For those who don’t know The Writers Guild of America (WGA) are currently on strike after voting back in March to do so if an agreement for increased job security for writers, larger writers’ rooms, a limit on the use of AI in screenwriting, and a larger share of streaming residuals, among other points was not reached by the time the contract expired at 11:59 p.m. on May 1. As a result of no agreement being reached, writers immediately took to the picket lines on May 2 and the industry has seen the largest walkout of its kind in 15 years.
