Snoop Dogg warms up for Roskilde

US rapper Snoop Dogg gears up for Roskilde Music Festival

Warming up for his appearance at the Roskilde Music Festival at the end of the month, US rapper Snoop Dogg took Copenhagen by storm on Saturday, joining artists like Nobody Beats the Beats, Natasha Bedingfield, and Avril Lavigne at the Zulu Rocks concert in Parken.

Before an ecstatic audience of 30,000, Calvin 'Snoop Dogg' Broadus performed some of his naughtiest numbers, such as Nuthin' but a g-thing and Gin and Juice, wearing something the local media described as 'a very expensive and unpractical pair of pajamas'.

Before the concert, the rapper took the time to sign a few pairs of sneakers, launched in his name, at a downtown sports store.

Snoop Dogg recently topped the US singles chart for the first time in his career with Drop It Like It's Hot. The 33-year-old rapper has enjoyed six US top 10 albums since bursting onto the music scene in 1993.

Organisers of Denmark's largest music festival at Roskilde have announced Snoop Dogg will perform at this year's event.

The festival, which has been an annual fixture since 1971 and was inspired by the 1969 Woodstock festival, will take place from 30 June to 3 July. Held in the town of Roskilde near Copenhagen, the event attracts visitors from throughout Europe and the United States.

Other acts scheduled to appear include Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson, metal band Black Sabbath, and British jazz musician Jamie Cullum.
