Snoop Dogg has for the last three decades been about as iconic a figure in the hip-hop scene as there is, and his popularity has transcended genres, generations and even industries — in addition to his success as a rapper, he is also a producer, an actor, a businessman and an all-around media icon.

This tour celebrates the 30th anniversary of his album “Doggystyle,” and he will play the album in its entirety (along with other hits).

The Smashing Pumpkins – Aug. 17

This Grammy-winning bluegrass artist will play two shows in Huntsville, so hopefully if you cannot make one of them, you csan make the other. Or, why not catch both nights?
