Dr. Dre, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Rage — The Chronic Tour: Brixton Academy, London
Angus Batey, Hip-Hop Connection, June 1994
WHEN YOU think about it, the very fact that this gig took place at all seems more than a little miraculous. With one of the stars awaiting trial on an accessory to a murder charge, the other reported — by no less reliable a source than his record company — as highly unlikely to show up only two days beforehand, and the general atmosphere of media-induced hysteria that has prompted numerous London venues to ban hip-hop gigs outright, the simple act of Dre and Snoop ambling on stage shortly after 10 o'clock on a warm late April evening becomes a cause for major celebration.
