Once you’ve snapped up your Katy Perry/Usher tickets, it’s time to save up for your New Year’s Eve date with Snoop Dogg. Tickets for his headlining gig at Meydan on December 31  go on sale on Thursday November 1, organisers Alchemy Project have announced.
Support acts for the rapper, now also known as Snoop Lion following a visit to Jamaica, that have been announced so far are Faithless and Gorillaz Soundsystem.
British 90s heroes Faithless had said they were splitting after their concert at Atlantis in 2011, but Alchemy say they have pulled some strings and got the band back together. Gorillaz Soundsystem is an audio-visual outfit playing the Gorillaz hits and “outsized projections of their award winning animation”, and does not feature Damon Albarn or Jamie Hewlett.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday 1st November at Virgin Megastores, timeouttickets.com, platinumlist.com and Vox Cinemas. Ticket prices were not confirmed at time of going to press, but organisers promise a reduced price for November.
