MJR Group has announced the UK and Ireland leg of Snoop Dogg‘s “I Wanna Thank Me” tour. Starting April 9 at 3 Arena in the Irish capital of Dublin and ends on April 16 at Arena Birmingham. In-between, the tour will visit the SSE Arena, Belfast, Manchester Arena, First Direct Arena, Leeds, O2 London and Arena Birmingham.
The tour, named after his latest album ‘I Wanna Thank Me’, will almost certainly pack arenas across the UK. I Wanna Thank Me celebrates 25 years of Snoop Dogg, a career that has seen the Doggfather stamp his name in music history. He named the album after his 2018 acceptance speech for receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Upon receiving the star, Snoop Dogg gave himself credit for longevity and also his success. “I want to thank me for believing in me, I want to thank me for doing all this hard work,” he said. “I wanna thank me for taking no days off, I wanna thank me for never quitting.”
This is Snoop’s seventeenth official release and the collaborations and guest cameos flow with names that pack a punch. Some of them include DJ Battlecat, Swizz Beatz, Chris Brown, Mustard, YG, Slick Rick, Trey Songz and Wiz Khalifa.
I Want To Thank Me Tour Gets UK Fans Excited
On the UK and Ireland legs of the tour, Snoop Dogg joins forces with key collaborators from his music career. These include original 213 member Warren G, former Death Row Records artists Tha Dogg Pound, D12 and Obie Trice. Furthermore, on selected dates the Irish rap duo Versatile will also perform.
However, not all UK fans are happy because no dates are planned for Scotland. As a result, Scottish fans of the west coast veteran will have to travel to see the I Want To Thank Me tour. Consequently, fans turned to social media to vent their frustration. One outraged fan said “Snoop Dogg not coming to Scotland, gonna riot.” Another fan said, “weak Snoop Dogg, we got some banging bud up hear these days bruh.”
Tickets went on general sale on Monday, October 7 via the MJR Group website priced from £48 each.
