Kicking off next month!
Snoop Dogg’s long-awaited return to Australia just got even bigger, with the rapper adding some legendary supports to the tour.
Detroit rapper Obie Trice, American hip hop collective D12, Tha Dogg Pound (made up of American hip hop duo Kurupt and Daz Dillinger) and Irish hip hop outfit Versatile will all be joining Snoop on his forthcoming arena tour.
Snoop's I WANNA THANK ME tour, which kicks off next month, is touching down in Australia after nine years between visits when he headlined Big Day Out festival in 2014.
The tour is named after the album and documentary of the same name, promoting his 17th album and 25 years of making music.
Kicking off in Perth at RAC Arena on 27 February, Snoop Dogg will then head to Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena for two huge shows before performing two shows at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, a massive show at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre before wrapping up the tour with a brand new show in Adelaide on March 8.

Back in December, around the same time Snoop’s tour was rescheduled, a biopic about the beloved hip hop figure was revealed to be in the works.
As Deadline reported, the movie is in partnership with Snoop's newly formed Death Row Pictures and Universal Pictures. The biopic will be the first film from Death Row Pictures and feature music from Snoop Dogg's extensive catalogue.
Menace II Society director, Allen Hughes, takes the reigns alongside Black Panther's Joe Robert Cole, penning the script. Snoop is co-producing with Hughes and Sara Ramaker.
"I waited a long time to put this project together because I wanted to choose the right director, the perfect writer, and the greatest movie company I could partner with that could understand the legacy that I'm trying to portray on screen and the memory I'm trying to leave behind," Snoop revealed in a statement. "It was the perfect marriage. It was holy matrimony, not holy macaroni."
