Snoop Dogg has announced he will be embarking on an arena tour of Australia in 2022. The rapper hasn’t toured Australian cities since 2014 when he headlined the Big Day Out. The 2022 tour is in support of his 17th studio album; I Wanna Thank Me. Kicking off in Perth on October 26, 2022, before heading east, pre-sale tickets will be available this Friday, September 10, 2021.
I Wanna Thank Me was released, alongside a documentary of the same name in 2019. And although the doco is a celebration of Snoop’s 25 years in the industry, the 2022 I Wanna Thank Me Tour is “all about the music.”
Additionally, it has been announced that the tour “marks an important milestone for the newly formed partnership between TEG MJR and Snoop Dogg.” TEG MJR signed an exclusive deal with Snoop Dogg for all international shows, outside North America for five years.

According to the tour’s announcement;
Hailed by Rolling Stone as ‘America’s Most Lovable Pimp; a hip-hop star that has survived gangsta rap, charmed Hollywood and won over soccer moms – a hip-hop family man who’s evolved from consummate thug to ultimate mack’, Snoop Dogg remains one of the most important figures in music, almost three decades into his career.
He’s roasted Donald Trump on national television, baked brownies with Martha Stewart and collaborated with a list of celebrities that includes (but isn’t limited to) 2Pac, Pharrell Williams, Dr Dre, Eminem, Warren G, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and more.
Despite immediately turning heads with his appearance on Dr. Dre’s iconic album The Chronic in 1992, few could have predicted the meteoric rise of the California local; 17 studio albums, 17 Grammy nominations and tens of millions of record sales, plus appearances in acclaimed movies and TV shows and his own burgeoning cannabis business.
