Snoop Dogg, Diddy Launch European Tour

Snoop Dogg and Sean "Diddy" Combs have announced a major European concert tour, that will feature the former foes as co-headliners of the Snoop/Diddy Tour.

The 18-city tour kicks off March 12 in Oslo, Norway and wraps up with a performance at the Nottingham Arena in the United Kingdom in April. The rappers will visit numerous cities, including Germany, Switzerland, France, Denmark, Belgium, Holland and Ireland.

Diddy will perform selections from his latest album Press Play, while Snoop and his backing band The Snoopadelics, will hit the road in support of his latest album, Tha Blue Carpet Treatment.

The announcement marks Snoop's first major appearances in the United Kingdom, since the rapper was involved in an airport brawl in April in London's Heathrow Airport.

Snoop and an entourage of almost 30 people were en route from Los Angeles to Johannesburg, South Africa, to perform at a major festival, when certain members were denied entry into British Airways' first-class lounge.

A huge brawl ensued, resulting in seven officers being injured. As a result of the brawl, Snoop was banned from flying British Airways. T

he rapper was then allegedly banned by the UK's Home Office, because of his previous criminal record in the United States.

Any alleged ban on Snoop Dogg appearing in the United Kingdom has been lifted, as the tour calls for stops in London, Cardiff, Manchester, Glasgow and Nottingham.

Snoop and Diddy were one time rivals and central figures in a feud between Death Row Records and Bad Boy Entertainment. The bad blood between the two labels resulted in an "East coast/West coast" feud, which climaxed with the tragic, unsolved murders of Death Row rapper Tupac Shakur and Bad Boy artist The Notorious B.I.G.
