Happening Wednesday: Snoop Dogg, Elton John and more


Snoop Dogg and Mike Epps The "Doggfather" has tapped comedian turned rapper Mike Epps to be co-headliner for the limited run mini tour, " Imagine That!" The rhyming and styling duo combine their stage show with a humorous story about two suave nightclub performers who end up arrested and have to find their way out of the slammer. Gibson Amphitheatre, 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City. 8:15 p.m. $34-$92. (818) 622-4440. http://www.livenation.com.

Elton John and Leon Russell A reunion almost 40 years in the making, Elton John has teamed up with his longtime idol Leon Russell to record "The Union," a critically acclaimed collection of duets. Now the two are stepping out onto stages across the country playing a mix of new and classic material, with this singular L.A. date at the Hollywood Palladium. 6215 Sunset Blvd. 8 p.m. $99. http://www.livenation.com. (323) 962-7600.


"The Devil's Claim" Though best known for his Academy Award-nominated performance in "The Bridge on the River Kwai" in 1957, the Japanese actor, producer and director Sessue Hayakawa was a star of the silent screen decades earlier. In the 1920 film "The Devil's Claim," Hayakawa plays a dual role: as an Indian novelist and as the hero in the novelist's adventure tales. Silent Movie Theatre, 611 N. Fairfax Ave., L.A. 8 p.m. $12. (323) 655-2510. http://www.cinefamily.org.


"Spirituality and the Environment" The Southland's premiere hub for marine research dives head-first into multiculturalism when it hosts spiritual leaders from the Christian, Islamic, Jewish, Buddhist and Native American faiths to discuss global problems. Aquarium of the Pacific CEO Jerry Schubel and the Rev. Larry Ginn moderate the spiritually diverse panel. Despite sounding like the set-up to a bad joke, the event promises to inspire guests with a show of interfaith cooperation. Aquarium of the Pacific, 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach. 7 p.m. Free. http://www.aquariumofpacific.org.
