Snoop Dogg Will Headline This Year's Dallas Observer St. Patrick's Day Concert

snoop-dogg-photo.jpg
The city of Dallas wants this year's St. Patrick's Day festivities to be a little more "family friendly." It's in that spirit that we make this important announcement: We're bringing Snoop Dogg to the party.

The Doggfather will headline the annual Dallas Observer St. Patrick's Day concert on the afternoon of Saturday, March 16 in the Energy Square Parking Lot after the Greenville Avenue parade. Gates open at noon. Tickets are $15 and go on sale next Friday, February 8 at 10 a.m. But you can get them on Tuesday, February 5, through our pre-sale by signing up for our music newsletter.

Presale Ticket Information

Previous headliners for the Observer's St. Patty's day concert include Ryan Bingham & The Dead Horses and the Toadies.

Snoop, of course, is among the most significant and prolific rappers in history -- he released his eleventh full-length, Doggumentary, in 2011. These days, he's prepping his debut reggae album Reincarnated and generally continuing to have more fun than everyone else. Listen to a few of our favorite Snoop verses below.

We haven't determined the rest of this year's lineup, but we'll have that for you soon enough. In the meantime, rest assured we are taking the city's attempts to make the St. Patrick's day festivities "family friendly" very seriously. Observe our headliner acting as a role model for a convicted felon:

Again, here are the nuts and bolts:

Snoop Dogg at a family friendly event?! LOL! Are you sure about that. Snoop Lion is for ADULTS only.

Doubt it. He was late to a show I went to and had a short set. It was still worth it though. Enjoy if you do go!

He'll show up late and only have time for 5 songs max. With that said, I am still going.

Huh, weird, I thought they changed the name to make it more "family" friendly and then you announce Snoopy Dogg/Lion is your headliner.
