Ever since Dr. Dre came out of hiding with Compton, there’s been teases pertaining to a world tour. Mainly, Snoop Dogg is the one talking about it, and his speak-into-existence approach continues during his Rolling Stone interview.
Does that include a tour? People want to see you two on the road.
I think that makes sense more than anything. A Snoop-Dre album would be amazing, but a tour even more, because we have legendary music the world has yet to see us perform globally. I’m pretty sure he wants to do it. He just wants the team in place. Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre – that’s the dream team for him.
It’s not surprising that this tour is taking forever to happen. Dr. Dre, as we know, is a perfectionist. Once he has a vision, there’s no compromising what it is he (wants) to see take shape. So, he wants the biggest artists in hip-hop all together on one tour where schedules are definitely going to conflict until they can all sit down and work it out. The best plan of action is to book the proposed tour far in advance that way Eminem can’t make up an excuse about having to take his daughter to school. Realistically, though, it seems like Em would be the easiest to get on board since he’s so quiet and reclusive nowadays.
If it happens, this Dr. Dre tour could be one of the biggest in this generation. As big, if not bigger, than the Up in Smoke tour from 2000. Snoop also says in the interview that he and Dre have legacies to worry about. What better way to leave your mark than one final tour that reunites you with your close friends and apprentices?
