Bernard Sumner’s Bad Lieutenant cancel US gigs

Visa problems are cited for the problems

Bernard Sumner‘s Bad Lieutenant have cancelled their upcoming US tour.

Due to play two nights in both Chicago and New York, which included two nights supporting Pixies, visa problems have meant they have had to cancel all four dates.

“We were all so very excited about coming to the States to play our new music for our American fans,” Sumner said in a statement. “And [we] are extremely disappointed that, on this occasion, we won’t have the opportunity to do so.”


Planning to reschedule the cancelled dates, the statement also said that additional US dates would be added for the tour which will now be sometime in spring.

The band, who released their debut album ‘Never Cry Another Tear’ last month, have confirmed they will still be playing in support of Pet Shop Boys on their winter UK tour.

The cancelled dates are:

Chicago IL Park West (November 18)
Chicago IL Aragon Ballroom (19)
New York City NY Webster Hall (21)
New York City NY Hammerstein Ballroom (23)
