TRICKY -PROBLEMS PROCESSING HIS POLICE RECORDS LEAD TO FURTHER POSTPONMENT OF US TOUR
Tricky will have to cancel some of the dates on his US 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.
Tricky has some juvenile offences for joyriding and forgery of the crown and the US authorities require full disclosure before granting any visas. The new hold-up has been in getting this information from the UK police authorities.
Tricky said “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.”
Visas are expected to be granted in time for the shows in San Francisco, New York, Asheville and LA and Tricky will looking to tour fully in 2014.
Tricky was supposed to play Webster Hall in NYC on June 13. That was postponed to 10/2, and now that show is 10/26. All tickets from the previous shows will be honored. Our contest for tickets to the show is now back open as well.
