London: A concert by rapper Snoop Dogg was axed at the 11th hour after promoters sold just 200 tickets.

The 40-year-old was due to perform at the 700-capacity Lone Star Amphitheater in Lubbock, Texas but the show was canceled after poor sales, reported Contactmusic.

"Snoop`s show had sold less than 200 tickets in advance... Lubbock concert-goers need to buy their tickets in advance if they want these shows to happen," said a spokesman for local ticket sellers Select-A-Seat.
