Snoop Dogg has canceled a pair of Hollywood Bowl shows slated for October as he stands in solidarity with those on the front lines of the writer and actors’ strikes.
Snoop took to Instagram on Tuesday (July 25) to make the cancellations official with an announcement. The two Hollywood Bowl dates featured Dr. Dre on the bill and were originally slated for June before being pushed to October with hopes of the strikes being over, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.
“We regret to inform you that due to the ongoing strike and the uncertainty when this will be over, we need to cancel the Hollywood Bowl show,” Snoop wrote.
“We stand in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters in the WGA and SAG-AFTRA during this difficult time and remain hopeful that the AMPTP will come back to the negotiating table with a REAL proposal and we can all get back to work.”

For the most part, fans were appreciative of Snoop’s gesture to stand by the actors’ and writers’ unions and sacrifice a potential hefty show check.
“Much love and respect to Uncle Snoop,” one person commented. “You’re a cultural powerhouse and your support means a LOT.”
While there were others that voiced their hope to see this kind of support go toward the homeless and starving of America at some point.
“After we are done supporting the strikes, we should put this much dedication towards helping homeless and low-income people,” another person penned.
Snoop is no stranger to the acting world as he’s made his mark over the years in Hollywood with past roles in in Training Day, Starsky & Hutch, BMF, Baby Boy, The Addams Family 2, Meet The Blacks and more.
Fortunately, Snoop Dogg fans can still catch him on the road this summer as he treks across North America with Wiz Khalifa. The High School Reunion Tour is set to make stops the rest of July in Toronto, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey.
