Snoop Dogg has canceled his forthcoming Hollywood Bowl 30th anniversary event in solidarity with the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

Previously, the rapper postponed two gigs at the Hollywood Bowl to commemorate the 30th anniversary of his record Doggystyle. Those events were initially rescheduled, but as the strike progressed, the rapper issued a social media update informing fans that the Hollywood Bowl concerts would be canceled rather than postponed.

The Snoop Dogg Hollywood Bowl gigs were originally scheduled for June 27 and 28. Replacement dates were set on October 20 and 21, but strike negotiations are dragging on.

“We regret to inform you that we must cancel the Hollywood Bowl show due to the ongoing strike and the uncertainty of when it will end,” the notice states. “During this difficult time, we continue to stand in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters in the WGA and SAG/AFTRA and remain hopeful that AMPTP will return to the negotiating table with a REAL proposal so we can all get back to work.”

Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre will collaborate with conductor Derrick Hodge and the ReCollective Orchestra to perform fresh interpretations of Doggystyle tracks at the Hollywood Bowl concerts. Snoop and Dr. Dre are also planning to release a new album called Missionary later this year; it’s unclear whether those plans will be disrupted. There has been no mention of ticket refunds.

The Writers Guild of America decided in March to strike in May, and actors from the SAG/AFTRA union soon followed suit. According to SAG/AFTRA, studios requested the ability to scan background performers with AI and maintain rights to their likeness in perpetuity, including the right to replace real background actors without further compensation for the use of their image.
