Snoop Postpones U.S. Tour

March 13 [7:55 EST] -- The Associated Press reports that Snoop Doggy Dogg has postponed his upcoming U.S. tour out of respect for the memory of The Notorious B.I.G.

The Doggfather East-West Fresh Fest 1997 World Tour was to have kicked off March 21 in Winston-Salem, but has reportedly been put on hold until sometime in April.

When the tour eventually does launch, it will reportedly be accompanied by tighter security, and will now feature a film tribute to Biggie and the late Tupac Shakur.
