Everyone, quick, roll out your best weed jokes. Because, frankly, what else are you going to say about the news that Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa just announced a co-headlining gig at Gexa Energy Pavilion on August 19?
You don't need to feel bad about it, either, because Snoop and Wiz are pretty up front about the joke themselves. The tour, which kicks off in West Palm Best on July 20, will hit 33 cities and is dubbed The High Road Summer Tour, presented by — who else? — Mary Jane. The flyer is even covered in marijuana plants which, together with the $12 Miller High Lifes, may be the only thing to get you through what's certain to be a hot day for an outdoor concert.
Snoop was just in town this weekend to get inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame during the Wrestlemania 32 blowout at AT&T Stadium, and he also sneaked in a private concert at Trees beforehand on Friday night. It's a miracle of sorts that he can find time for the tour, what with his commitments as a nature show host via Planet Snoop.
Tickets go on sale for the Friday, August 19, concert at noon on Friday, April 8. They will be available at LiveNation.com.
