Dean was not at all interested in seeing Snoop so that's how I came to spend Valentine's Day with my 21 year old neighbor, Anna. Dean does not share my love for Gangsta Rap. Last time Snoop was in town Anna went. I wanted to go but it was a Wednesday night & Dean was worried about the thug factor. Let's be honest, Snoop doesn't have the best of reputations. But the past is the past & he hasn't been in trouble for years, he's been married to the same lady for years too. When talking about Snoop I like to refer to the pic of him & Martha Stewart that was floating around Facebook awhile back. It said be careful of being judgemental - only one of those people is a convicted felon. Makes you think right? Well, Anna assured me after the last concert that the thug factor was zero. I vowed then & there that if came back to Baton Rouge I was there. To think I almost missed it! I didn't find out until the week before that he would be in town. We got our tickets Monday & Monday evening it was sold out.
Fast forward to Friday. The show "starts" at 9:00. Anna told me that wouldn't happen. We decided to leave home about 9:00. I was so scared I'd miss him. The good news is I didn't miss him & we got an awesome spot. The bad news is we stood in that awesome spot for 2 1/2 hours before Snoop came on. There was a DJ that was ok but he had serious issues with his ex girlfriend. Bitter, Party of 1!
Come to find out Snoop was playing in the Celebrity Basketball Game at the NBA All Star festivities in New Orleans before the concert.
It was a great concert! I had so much fun!!! The thug factor was zero. Tickets were $50 so I guess that played a part in it.
