How does Sam Sparro have visa issues (again)?
It appears that Sam Sparro's September tour has been cancelled. According to Music Hall of Williamsburg where he was supposed to play on September 17th,
"This show has been canceled due to visa issues. Refunds available at point of purchase"
None of the other tour dates appear on Sam's MySpace anymore either. "Visa issues" is the same reason he gave last time he cancelled shows. Maybe he's not an American citizen... I have no idea. According to b news,
Sparro's own story is an intriguing, cross-continental tale. Born in Sydney, he lived here until the age of 10. In the 15 years since then, he's jumped between LA, Australia and London.
"I've moved around a lot, so I do feel more of a citizen of the world than of any particular nationality," he says.
Maybe the world won't let him play.
He also cancelled his appearance at this weekend's V Festival in the UK. I wonder if that was visa issues too.
