Hip-hop fans, rejoice - one of the greatest rappers of the modern era is Dublin-bound.

It's been a while since Snoop Dogg last hit Irish shores, but he's bringing his 'I Wanna Thank Me' tour to the 3Arena next April.

He'll also be joined by a number of other hip-hop acts, including Warren G, Obie Trice, Tha Dogg Pound, Irish duo Versatile and D12.

It'll all happen at the 3Arena on April 9th, with a date at Belfast's SSE Arena the following day, April 10th.

Tickets are on sale this coming Monday, October 7th.

Snoop Dogg released his 17th album 'I Wanna Thank Me' in August, which featured collaborations with everyone from Chris Brown to Wiz Khalifa and Swizz Beatz.
