Ongoing visa problems scupper dates
The View have yet again cancelled a tour of the US, citing continuing visa problems.
The band will not play their scheduled shows, which were due to kick off April 30 in Cambridge, MA, reports Brooklyn Vegan.
The View previously cancelled a February tour due singer Kyle Falconer facing charges after he was discovered to be in possession of cocaine. He was later fined £1,000 by a Scottish court for the offense.
Despite the fact that his solicitor saying during the hearing that a conviction would make it “next to impossible” for the band to tour America, dates were rescheduled for this month.
Now according to a statement issued to the US media: “Due to continuing visa and immigration issues, Scotland’s The View has cancelled its American tour originally set for May. (All tickets will be refunded at the place of purchase.)”
The Scottish indie rockers were set to promote their debut album ‘Hats Off To The Buskers’.
The postponed dates are:
Cambridge, MA TT The Bears (April 30)
New York, NY Bowery Ballroom (May 1)
Brooklyn, NY Luna Lounge (2)
Toronto, ON Lee’s Place (4)
Chicago, IL Schuba’s Tavern (6)
