Ice Cube replaces Snoop Dogg at El Dorado Musicfest | Festivals
Legendary rapper Ice Cube will headline Saturday night October 2 of the Musicfest weekend at El Dorado.
Ice Cube replaces former scheduled artist Snoop Dogg with Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, which canceled last June.
The Murphy Arts District (MAD) made the announcement on Sunday.
The concert will take place at the First Financial Music Hall from 7 p.m. Tickets for the event will go on sale to MAD members at 10 a.m. Wednesday and to the public at 10 a.m. on August 13.
Ice Cube is an award-winning musician, actor, director, producer and CEO and founder of the Big3 professional 3v3 basketball league.
After writing the most memorable lyrics to groundbreaking NWA songs, Ice Cube left the band at the height of their popularity because they were not being paid properly. This decision led to one of the most successful careers in the history of music. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2016, and as a solo artist he has sold over 10 million albums while remaining one of rap’s most respected and influential artists.
Beyond music, Ice Cube has established himself as one of the most successful figures in entertainment and was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017. In the cinematic arena, he produced on “Friday”, “Ride Along”, “Barbershop” and “Are we still there?” As well as the award-winning and critically acclaimed biopic, “Straight Outta Compton”. He is also an acclaimed writer and director who is best known for his acting.
His latest album, “Everythang’s Corrupt”, was his 18th outing as a solo artist or band member. Most recently, Ice Cube worked on a supergroup album titled Mt. Westmore with California legends Snoop Dogg, Too $ hort and E-40.
The concert doors will open at 6 p.m. with an opening act to be announced taking the stage at 7 p.m.
