Snoop Dogg and Friends performed at the Peterborough Memorial Centre on Thursday night. The 15,000 seat venue was ready for a party. DJ Young Legend, a star from Toronto, kicked the evening off by blasting east and west coast hip hop classics. Peter Jackson, currently riding the top of the Canadian hip hop charts, ripped into his set with the subtlety of a shotgun.
When it was time for the main event a single spotlight revealed Snoop Dogg at centre stage wearing a black "Peterborough Petes" jersey. The capacity crowd erupted with applause and remained on its feet for the entire show. Like a master showman, Snoop Dogg delivered hit after hit from his extensive catalogue. He took the reins and proved why he has sold over 35 million albums worldwide. Audience members as young as five and into their sixties danced and sang along and became part of the Snoop Dogg experience. The platinum artist sent a charge through this crowd that continued as they spilled out into the night. This is a concert tour not to be missed.
