In solidarity with the striking actors and writers, Snoop Dogg has decided to cancel his two Hollywood Bowl shows.
On Tuesday (7.27,) the superstar rapper took to Instagram to confirm that his Hollywood Bowl gigs have officially been scrapped in support of the current SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.
“We regret to inform you that due to the ongoing strike and the uncertainty of when this will be over, we need to cancel the Hollywood Bowl show.” “We continue to stand in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters in the WGA and SAG/AFTRA during this difficult time and remain hopeful that the AMPTP will come back to the negotiating table with a REAL proposal and we can all get back to work,” wrote the musician (born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.) “We gotta move that date. Me and Dr. Dre, we stand in solidarity with the writers,” Snoop announced at the time. “So make sure you get your tickers to stay on point and stay on deck.”
Set to be produced by Dr. Dre in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Snoop’a landmark debut LP, Doggystyle, the Los Angeles-based shows were originally scheduled for June 27 + 28 and have now been moved to October 20 + 21 as the Hip Hop icons stand with the strikers.
Members of SAG-AFTRA and WGA are demanding a larger share of streaming residuals, increased job security, larger writers’ rooms and a limit on the use of AI in the film industry, among other points.
