TEG is thrilled to announce that its UK-based promotion division, TEG MJR, in collaboration with MPI Artists, has formally signed an exclusive five-year deal with Hip hop legend Snoop Dogg.
Under the multi-million-dollar deal TEG MJR will promote all Snoop Dogg tours globally outside of North America, beginning with dates for Snoop’s 2022 World Tour including rescheduled sold-out shows at the 02 Arena in London, 3 Arena in Dublin and Ziggo Dome Arena in Amsterdam.
With new music on the way and coming off the back of his critically acclaimed and popularly celebrated 2019 album release ‘I Wanna Thank Me’, Snoop is planning to hit the ground running as the world exits lockdown.
TEG MJR CEO Richard Buck penned the agreement with Snoop’s international agents Julian O’Brien and MPI’s Minneapolis-based partner Nabil Ghebre, who have been working closely together with Bobby D (AKA Robert Dreislen) who is at the helm of Snoop Dogg’s operations in Los Angeles.
In 2019 Bobby D and Snoop Dogg founded Uncle Snoop’s Army, the multi-million-dollar Los Angeles based music and entertainment company, representing a host of Hip hop royalty and up and coming artists. The deal furthers Bobby and Snoop’s aim to shake up the music industry, as the pair continue to re-write the rule book.
Geoff Jones, CEO of TEG, said: “Snoop Dogg is a Hip hop pioneer and one its greatest live performers. He has won an astonishing number of awards and nominations and we are thrilled to be able to bring the man and his music live to fans the world over for the next five years.”
Bobby D, Manager of Snoop Dogg, Co-Owner of Uncle Snoop’s Army said: “We are excited about this five-year international partnership with TEG and to continuously come overseas to connect with our fans around the world.”
Richard Buck, CEO of TEG MJR said: “Snoop is one of the most respected and prolific Hip hop artists on the planet. We are really excited in helping him bring both his new music and back catalogue to life with this touring partnership.”
Nabil Ghebre, Partner MPI Artists, DGB Management said: “We are very excited to have a major touring plan locked in for the next five years with an iconic artist like Snoop Dogg. This shows that in the Hip hop world there are long term touring partnerships available where the artists can be treated like royalty, as they deserve to be.”
Julian O’Brien, Partner MPI Artists, Director TEG MJR Éire said: “Working with Snoop Dogg is a rare opportunity to work with a true legend. Snoop is in the same bracket as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin or Bob Marley, there is no greater, Snoop is the King. We are blessed to have the opportunity to continue working with Snoop over the next five years, everybody involved is very excited.”
TEG MJR & MPI Artists are very pleased to announce the first dates on Snoop Dogg’s world tour (including rescheduled dates for the UK, Ireland and Amsterdam).
