SonReal forced to wing it at Snoop Dogg concert
Victoria, BC – Those who made it to Snoop Dogg’s infamous concert this July will appreciate the difficult hand dealt to his opening act, SonReal.
The Dogg Father himself earned boos and jeers, as he blazed the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre stage 45 minutes late and without his promised opening entourage, Tha Dogg Pound. So being the guy called in last minute to warm the restless arena – without a full rehearsal or even his regular DJ? Not an easy task.
If you ask Aaron Hoffman (a.k.a. SonReal), however, it’s a worthy challenge.
“It’s always fun opening for someone as big and iconic as Snoop because you have to win over the crowd. They’re there to see Snoop, they don’t really care about you, at the start,” said Hoffman. “It’s a lot different than when I do a show and headline a smaller venue, obviously. It’s a lot different than when I first come out and everyone’s cheering and all that.”
