Snoop Dogg Cancels Appearance at Texas Showdown Festival

Popular rapper Snoop Dogg, known as DJ Snoopadelic, was unable to attend the Texas Showdown Festival due to unforeseen circumstances, the promoter announced late Friday.

According to George Galindo, founder and CEO of the festival, plans to reschedule the concert are in the works, and those fans who purchased wristbands for the opening night of the event at the El Paso County Coliseum, 4100 E. Paisano, will be able to use those same wristbands for entry into the rescheduled concert.

The festival, however, continues through the weekend Sept. 24-25 and will feature a variety of entertainment, music, food, beverages, sideshows, hundreds of vendors, human suspensions shows and more. And, above it all, hundreds of tattoo artists will take over the floor of the Coliseum.

The Texas Showdown Festival gets underway at noon each day. Tickets, which cost $40 daily, are available at the El Paso County Coliseum Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000 and online.

The seventh annual event also will feature a variety of music, spotlighted by Snoopadelic, the DJ show creation of award-winning rapper Snoop Dogg, on Sept. 23.

Other acts will include, on Sept. 23: Candlebox, DJ Unknown, Drama Diablo, Pro Davis, Rawger North, Mr. Explicit, Shabam Sahdeeq, El Gant and Profitt & Tank; on Sept. 24: Hinder, Contracorriente, Blue Felix, The Convalescence, It Lies Within, Raw Fabrics, Bash, Andromeda Theory and Vibes Arise; on Sept. 25: House of Pain, Everlast, Kid Frost, Franchize Music, Nikki’s Wives, Mana rap group and Nave Monjo.

Celebrity tattoo artists, including Jim Francis, Kito and Big Ceeze from “Ink Master,” the popular TV reality competition series, also will be on hand, as will Matt Gone, who is in the Guinness Book of World Records for his body tattoos.

The now-national festival, created by founder and CEO George Galindo, an El Pasoan who owns House of Pain Tattoo, has been recognized around the globe, including being named one of the five best tattoo conventions in the world by Tattoosday, a tattoo blog, earning a spot among acclaimed company, including the International London Tattoo Convention, NY Empire State Tattoo Expo, Musink Tattoo Convention & Music Festival in Costa Mesa, Calif., and the Berlin Tattoo Convention.

The Texas Showdown Festival gets underway at noon each day. Tickets, which cost $40 daily and $75 for a three-day pass, are available at the El Paso County Coliseum Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000 and online.
