Snoop Dogg and Sean "Diddy" Combs have been forced to cancel five concert dates on their European tour due to a visa denial. Dogg, a.k.a. Calvin Broadus, was denied entry into England due to concerns about the rapper's presence in the country.
A public statement read, "With late notice of Snoop being denied a visa, time has ran out and it is too late reconfigure the show."
In April 2006, Snoop and members of his entourage were arrested and spent the night in a London jail after they caused a violent disturbance in the British Airways first class lounge in Heathrow Airport. He was banned thereafter from visiting the country.
