Teaming up for a summer long 33 stop tour, Wiz Khalifa and Long Beach rap legend Snoop Dogg blazed into Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre Thursday evening August 25th. Dubbed “The High Road Tour”, the Doggfather brought along a solid opening crew of performers including Jhené Aiko, Kevin Gates, Casey Veggies and DJ Drama.
A solid weeknight crowd partied hard early in the parking lot and brought the celebration inside early as the festivities began shortly after 6pm. There was no doubt the demographic targeted during this tour, advertisements for all sorts of recreational marijuana-related products ran in between each set.
After short half hour sets by Aiko and Gates, the duo of Khalifa and Snoop hit the stage just prior to 9:30pm. Alternating every few songs, the two rappers provided a nice flow for the evening and supplied a unique “what’s next?” scenario. With a lengthy selection of classics to pick from, it was no surprise that Snoop came out swinging early with time-honored hits “Next Episode”, “Nothin’ But A G Thang” and “Gin & Juice”. Once Khalifa entered the stage after two Snoop tunes, he hit the ground running with “Bake Sale” and “We Dem Boyz”…leaving his mega hit “See You Again” for later in the set.
The tour runs through this upcoming week, finishing up with stops in Portland on September 1 and Seattle on September 2.
