Snoop Dogg (Mac) and Wiz Khalifa (Devin) brought a massive party to Toledo last night as part of their joint High School Reunion Tour along with the Ying Yang Twins. The tour brings Snoop and Wiz together again, just as their comedy film Mac & Devin Go To High School did in 2012.
The full arena erupted with cheers and fans danced the entire time for all three performers as a large backing video screen displayed animated images.
Entering in style, Snoop walked in on stage left. He was laid back with his shades, wearing a blue bandana outfit and he performed tribute covers to those that have passed as well as some mashups and many of his hits. Notably, three decades ago the legendary west coast rapper released Doggystyle--his solo debut album via Death Row with producer Dr. Dre--and to celebrate the 4x Platinum Record, Snoop performed "Murder Was The Case," "Who Am I?" (with Wiz), "Gin and Juice" and others. Snoop was joined by two talented pole dancers on each side of the stage that were especially spotlighted during a mashup cover of Akon's "I Wanna Love You."
Last year, Snoop released his 19th album BODR (Bacc on Death Row) and is expected to release Dr. Dre collab album Missionary soon.
Before Snoop closed the show, multi-platinum selling artist Wiz indulged fans for about an hour with a solo set that included popular song opener "Black and Yellow." Wiz worked the tall, smoke-filled stage doing spins and jumps while smiling wide. Everyone bounced and sang along to "Roll Up," "Taylor Gang," "No Sleep" and others. Wiz later rejoined the stage to perform "We Dem Boyz" and "Young, Wild and Free" with Snoop.
Last year, Wiz released his 7th solo album Multiverse.
The summer High School Reunion Tour concludes late August.
