Shooting Snoop Dogg in Rockford

Last night was one for the record books. KB Digital was front and center at the Snoop Dogg concert in Rockford, Illinois, which also featured Warren G and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.

It’s amazing being able to photograph big stars but it’s even better when that star is someone you grew up listening to. Snoop Dogg put on quite the show and the crowd just loved jamming out to the older hits. Ever tried taking pictures while telling your body not to dance? Yeah, it was one of those moments.

The beginning started off great, just a couple of us photographers in the media section between the barricades and the stage, but then it went down hill. Random people tried coming up front, some being ‘all-access’ pass holders, some just trying their luck and of course security wasn’t having any of it. Needless to say, they ruined it for everyone, even us authorized media personnel. That didn’t discourage us as we continued scouting the stadium for different angles, and we were not disappointed.

The hip-hop artists performed at the Rivets Stadium, technically located in Loves Park, but the Rivets are associated with Rockford. We were not able to obtain the exact attendance count but it seemed like quite the crowd. While Rockford may not have been a feature destination on Snoop’s tour list, it sure felt like it.
