Doggfather returns to MontBleu

Snoop Dogg is once again going to make the MontBleu Theatre bounce down to the last ounce when he returns to perform Wednesday, Jan. 19.

The show is for all ages and will feature a full bar with ID. Tickets are on sale at the MontBleu ticket office for $37.50, or for $37.50 plus service fees at ticketmaster.com. The prices go up on the day of the show to $40. If this show sells as quickly at the July 17 one with Snoop and Ice Cube, it would be wise to get your tickets well in advance. When the hip-hop legends hit the stage last time the crowd was packed wall to wall with party people anxious for the show to crack off.

The legendary West Coast rapper has a new album in the works, “Doggumentary Music.” It is scheduled to be released March 8, but the first official single, “Wet,” is already on sale on iTunes.com.

“Wet” was recorded for Prince William of Wales’ bachelor party. The song according to Snoop’s representatives is a sequel to 2008’s “Sexual Eruption,” off of the D O Double G’s ninth studio album, “Ego Trippin’.”

The prince’s song was produced by the Cataracts, who can be heard at just about every club on the planet due to their work on Far East Movement’s single “Like a G6.”

Snoop reportedly said of the song,

“When I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William’s marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something,” Snoop told Sean Ryon of The DX Newsletter. ” ‘Wet’ is the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin.’ “

The album also is rumored to feature Kanye West, Too $hort, Kokane, The Gorillaz and Wiz Khalifa.

MTV dubbed Snoop and Wiz Khalifa the new Cheech and Chong after they collaborated on Wiz’s breakout hit, “Black and Yellow,” along with an untitled movie and soundtrack.

Snoop’s work with the Gorillaz includes the song “Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach,” where Snoop appears in a Revolutionary War styled uniform and was played as the band’s opening tune for a headlining set at last year’s Coachella Music and Art Festival.

The doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show is set to begin at 8:30 p.m.
