Hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg will be performing live at the State Theatre (609 Congress Street) in Portland on March 30, 2012, in an all ages show (yikes!) with doors opening at 7pm and the show starting at 8pm. Advance tickets are $40 and can be purchased in person at the Cumberland County Civic Center Box Office, charged by phone at 1-800-745-3000, or online at www.StateTheatrePortland.com. The State Theatre Box Office will be open one hour before doors open the night of the show. Tickets at the door will be $45 (if not already sold out).
While many are looking forward to the show, some may wonder about Snoop Dogg’s appearance in Maine of all places. Well, he’s already set to appear at the SnowMont Festival 2012 in Killington, Vermont, with Slightly Stoopid, and he has ties to Portland, Maine, thanks to Booking Agent Brent Smith of William Morries Endeavor who is originally from the area.
