Snoop Dogg, Diddy Launch European Tour

Snoop Dogg and

Sean "Diddy" Combs have announced a major European concert tour, that

will feature the former foes as co-headliners of the Snoop/Diddy Tour. The

18-city tour kicks off March 12 in Oslo, Norway and wraps up with a performance

at the Nottingham Arena in the United Kingdom in April. The rappers will visit

numerous cities, including Germany, Switzerland, France, Denmark, Belgium, Holland

and Ireland. Diddy

will perform selections from his latest album Press Play, while Snoop and

his backing band The Snoopadelics, will hit the road in support of his latest

album, Tha Blue Carpet Treatment.The

announcement marks Snoop’s first major appearances in the United Kingdom, since

the rapper was involved in an airport brawl in April in London’s Heathrow Airport.Snoop

and an entourage of almost 30 people were en route from Los Angeles to Johannesburg,

South Africa, to perform at a major festival, when certain members were denied

entry into British Airways’ first-class lounge. A

huge brawl ensued, resulting in seven officers being injured. As a result of the

brawl, Snoop was banned from flying British Airways. The

rapper was then allegedly banned by the UK’s Home Office, because of his previous

criminal record in the United States.Any

alleged ban on Snoop Dogg appearing in the United Kingdom has been lifted, as

the tour calls for stops in London, Cardiff, Manchester, Glasgow and Nottingham.

Snoop

and Diddy were one time rivals and central figures in a feud between Death Row

Records and Bad Boy Entertainment. The bad blood between the two labels resulted

in an "East coast/West coast" feud, which climaxed with the tragic,

unsolved murders of Death Row rapper Tupac Shakur and Bad Boy artist The Notorious
