Spark it up, because notable stoner, blunt roller, and hip-hop hero Snoop Dogg is coming to Detroit this summer.

Announced Monday, the 'Puff Puff Pass' tour will bring Snoop Dogg, fellow West Coast legend Warren G, and Cleveland-based hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to the newly christened Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre, formerly known as Chene Park, on July 5.



The tour celebrates 25 years of Snoop Dogg's critically-acclaimed debut studio album, Doggystyle. The Dr. Dre-produced album, released in 1993 on Death Row Records, cemented Snoop Dogg's image as a gangsta rapper. Since that time, Snoop Dogg has become arguably one of the most successful career rappers of all time, with more than 16 studio albums and dozens of TV and film appearances. Oh, and he's become an unlikely bestie to home and garden queen, Martha Stewart.

Tickets ($50+) go on sale starting Friday, March 22 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased via thearetha.com.
