Snoop & Diddy Announce European Tour

In a show of Hip-Hop unity, rap heavyweights Diddy and Snoop Dogg have unveiled plans to jointly headline a major European tour.

The two former enemies are planning on embarking on a nine-country, 18 city tour beginning in March. The Snoop/Diddy Tour will kick off at the Spektrum in Oslo, Norway and eventually wrap up with a concert in the UK at the Nottingham Arena on April 2. The tour will pass through countries including Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, France and Ireland, among others, before the tour sees its end.

Heres a list of the tour dates:

12 Oslo, Norway Spektrum
13 Copenhagen, Denmark The Forum
14 Berlin, Germany Max Schmelling Halle
15 Stuttgart, Germany Schleyerhalle
16 Hamburg, Germany Sporthalle
17 Frankfurt, Germany Festhalle
18 Munich, Germany Olympiahalle
19 Zurich, Switzerland Hallenstadion
21 Paris, France Bercy
22 Paris, France Bercy
23 Dusseldorf, Germany Philipshalle
24 Brussels, Belgium Forest National
25 Amsterdam, Holland Heineken Music Hall
27 London, UK Wembley Arena
28 Cardiff, UK Cardiff International Arena
29 Manchester, UK MEN Arena
30 Glasgow, UK SECC (Hall 4)
31 Dublin, Ireland The Point

1 Dublin, Ireland The Point
2 Nottingham, UK Nottingham Arena

First Nas & Jay-z now this. After all that 90s beef, the negative press and everything that went with it (eg politicians & clergymen bashing it), Hip Hop really needs this sort of unity to orject a good image for a change. Just hope this tour doesn't end up like the Best of Both Worlds tour, though.
