Snoop Dogg Sees British Ban Lifted

Hip-hop star SNOOP DOGG has been granted entry into Britain, despite reports he'd been banned from the country following an airport brawl in April (06). The rapper - real name CALVIN BROADUS - who has a previous criminal record in the United States, was detained by police at London's Heathrow Airport after he and an entourage of nearly 30 people injured terminal officials and cops when they were refused entry into British Airways' first-class lounge. The airline subsequently banned him and it was alleged the UK's Home Office would forbid future efforts to enter the country too. However, a new European tour with former rap rival SEAN COMBS will see Broadus play in London, Cardiff, Manchester, Glasgow and Nottingham next year (07), quashing rumours of a British ban. The concerts were announced yesterday (13DEC06). Both stars will perform tracks from new albums PRESS PLAY and THA BLUE CARPET TREATMENT on the tour, as well as hits from their back catalogues.
