Pop culture phenom Snoop Dogg bakes up big Austin-area show as part of smokin' new summer tour
Eleven years ago, rappers Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa played stoner high schoolers (?) in the straight-to-video comedy Mac & Devin Go to High School, a film that doesn’t even have a critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes. (But the audience score is 62 percent, for what it's worth.)
Now, Snoop and Khalifa will team up for a sequel of sorts. But instead of another high school buddy comedy romp, they'll be hitting concert venues across North America this summer.
Snoop and Wiz will headline The High School Reunion Tour, along with special guests Too $hort, Warren G, and Berner, and featuring DJ Drama. The 33-city tour will kick off start in Vancouver, British Columbia on Friday, July 7, and end in Irvine, California on Sunday, August 27.
Austinites can catch the show on Friday, August 18 at the Germania Insurance Amphitheater. The High School Reunion Tour will also hit the Houston area at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on Saturday, August 19, and close out its Lone Star shows in Dallas at Dos Equis Pavilion on Sunday, August 20,
Tickets will be available, starting with artist and Citi presales, beginning on Tuesday, March 7. (More info on Citi presales can be found here.) The general onsale for High School Reunion Tour will begin at 9 am Friday, March 10 here.
