Before the Chronic 2000 tour, Dr. Dre and Snoop plan to join forces onstage in Oahu, Hawaii on September 26 as part of the three-day Concert on Chronic Island (see "Snoop Dogg And Dr. Dre To Reunite On Stage").


the reunion, man," Snoop said of the Chronic Island gig. "We gonna have a bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb time. Me and Dr. Dre, we're just getting back to doing things together, but this show is going to be an actual reunion of us performing, embracing each other, and doing the classic songs that everybody loves to hear. We're just going to have a good time, so be there or be square." [RealVideo]
