No one in the history of hip-hop has so successfully transformed himself from a feared gangsta to a family-friendly pitchman. Sure, Snoop Dogg probably couldn't scare my grandmother these days but his distinctive, melodic flow still sounds fresh and songs like "Gin and Juice,""What's My Name?" and his version of "Lodi Dodi" continue to rock parties 15-plus years since their release. So, yeah, I'm excited to learn he's returning to the area later in a couple weeks.
It has just been confirmed that Snoop Dogg will bring his timeless G-Funk sounds to the cozy Galaxy Concert Theater in Santa Ana. The show is scheduled for Thursday, January 21. Opening act(s) haven't been confirmed yet. The concert is suppose to start at 8 p.m. and tickets are $45. The Long Beach native is touring in support of his December release Malice N Wonderland,
