Snoop Dogg continues to stand in solidarity with those on the front lines of the WGA strike. In his latest act of support, he announced he’s postponing the anniversary shows intended to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his debut album, Doggystyle.
“Hollywood Bowl, June 26, 27, we gotta move that date,” he said in a video shared to his Instagram. “Me and Dr. Dre, we stand in solidarity with the writers, so what we gon’ do, we gonna push it back to October 20 and October 21.” In the caption, he added that they’re hopeful “the AMPTP will negotiate fair deals as soon as possible and everybody can get back to work.”
Snoop previously voiced his understanding of the writers gripes, noting, “[Artists] need to figure it out the same way the writers are figuring it out.”
“The writers are striking because [of] streaming, they can’t get paid,” he told Variety’s executive music editor, Shirley Halperin, and Gamma’s Larry Jackson. “Because when it’s on the platform, it’s not like in the box office.”
