    Snoop Dogg is showing extra love to the Bay Area this month, with three concert stops in mid-December.

    The star is scheduled to perform at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz (Dec. 13), followed by concerts at the Uptown Theatre in Napa (Dec. 14) and Phoenix Theater in Petaluma (Dec. 15). Southern California rap crew Pac Div has been named as the opening act for the shows.

    The man born Calvin Broadus recently made headlines when he claimed he has changed his name to Snoop Lion. A reggae-inflected album called Reincarnated under the new moniker is expected in 2013. A second single from the album called "Here Comes The King" was released earlier this week.
