all UK dates for Snoop Dogg and P Diddy cancelled

news: Tuesday 27th March 2007

Snoop Dogg and P Diddy have been forced to cancel all of their UK tour dates.

Snoop Dogg has been denied a visa to enter this country, which means the scheduled gigs in London, Cardiff, Manchester, Glasgow and Nottingham, have all had to be shelved. The reason the rapper was refused entry was due to his previous criminal record.

Organisers claim the tour was cancelled after "credible behind the scenes efforts were made to no avail to reverse the decision."

In an interview on MTV, Snoop spoke out "They knew I was coming six, seven weeks ago, so they could have denied me access then. I cannot control my past - me being an ex-gang member, ex-drug dealer - but I know how to do what's right, how to turn my life around."
