Snoop Dogg has nixed his upcoming show at the Hollywood Bowl because of the ongoing writers and actors strikes.

The rapper posted a message on his social media channels Tuesday, letting fans know the two-night event celebrating the 30th anniversary of his debut album, Doggystyle, would no longer take place.

“We regret to inform you that due to the ongoing strike and the uncertainty of when this will be over, we need to cancel the Hollywood Bowl show,” the rapper wrote on Instagram. “We continue to stand in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters in the WGA and SAG/AFTRA during this difficult time.”

The post also urged studios and streamers to return to the negotiating table with a “real” proposal.

A message on the Hollywood Bowl website said tickets will be automatically refunded to the original payment method.

The iconic venue described the concert as “Snoop Dogg & Friends,” with Dr. Dre producing and Derrick Hodge conducting The ReCollective Orchestra.

Snoop, 51, previously postponed the show because of the Writers Guild of America strike, which started on May 2. On June 2, he announced on social media that the show was being moved from June to October.

Snoop and Dr. Dre have continued to show support for the strike and sent a food truck to the WGA picket line outside Paramount Studios in Los Angeles back in June.

Meantime, SAG-AFTRA announced its strike on July 13, and there’s no end in sight for either strike.

Snoop and Dre both act on the side. The two had roles in the 2001 film The Wash. Snoop has also appeared in the films Baby Boy (2001), Training Day (2001), and Starsky & Hutch (2004), plus the TV shows Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, King of the Hill, and Empire.

The Long Beach native’s first album, Doggystyle, was released in November 1993.

The multi-platinum selling CD featured the singles “Gin and Juice,” “What’s My Name,” “Lodi Dodi,” “Murder Was the Case” and other tracks.
