Indigo Road Entertainment specializes in shows at minor league ballparks nationwide. This is its first concert in Corpus Christi.

“Snoop Dogg is certainly a great choice for our first production at this great ballpark,” Indigo Road Entertainment Vice President Dan McCrath said. “He (Snoop) has sold over 23 million albums in the United States and has won the hearts of mainstream America. Everyone loves Snoop!”

The concert will be one of the top entertainment attractions set for the Corpus Christi ballpark, Hooks general manager Wes Weigle said.

“This will be one of the biggest concerts in the history of Whataburger Field,” Weigle said. “Snoop Dogg is a world-class entertainer and we are excited to have him in Corpus Christi.

“Whataburger Field has a unique backdrop and it is the largest outdoor venue in South Texas,” Weigle said. “The Hooks are dedicated to bringing memorable entertainment to the Coastal Bend and this is no exception. We have more planned… stay tuned!”

Snoop Dogg’s first solo album was released in 1993 and included “Gin and Juice” which was listed at No. 8 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop. During his career, Snoop has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide. His latest release is the gospel record, “Bible of Love.”
