Tricky Forced to Cancel Dates + To Push Tour Back Due to Visa Issues
Tue, 01 Oct 2013 11:57:46
Trip-hopper Tricky had to cancel some of the dates on his U.S. tour due to further visa problems. The tour will now start in San Francisco at the Treasure Island Festival and conclude with a re-arranged date in New York on October 26.
What's the deal? Well, to be honest, Tricky has some juvenile offences for joyriding and forgery of the crown on his record, and the U.S. authorities require full disclosure before granting any visas. The new hold-up is related to getting this information from the U.K. police authorities.
Tomfoolery in his youth = headaches as an adult!
Regarding the cancellations, Tricky says, "The most upsetting thing about this, whatever happens it seems like it's me letting people down. Other people have always dealt with visas for me and it turns out that they have not advised me properly. Now I have been advised that this was going to be straightforward and easily done in time for this tour and now this has happened."
Don't fret, Tricky. We GET it. Shit happs.
Visas are expected to be granted in time for the shows in San Francisco, New York, Asheville and L.A., and Tricky will be looking to tour fully in 2014. All upcoming Tricky U.S. shows are listed below.

10/19 San Francisco, CA - Treasure Island Music Festival
