James Legs turné inställd
Idag skulle bluespunkaren James Leg ha inlett sin Skandinavien-turné, men han har fått avslag på sin ansökan om förlängt visum. I går blev han tvingad att flyga hem till USA och spelningarna i Växjö, Kristianstad, Lindesberg, Tranås, Stockholm, Östersund, Trondheim, Oslo, Göteborg samt Höganäs har därför ställts in. Biljetter återlöses på respektive inköpsställe.
Nedan följer James egna ord om det inträffade:
»I'm very sad and sorry to say the next 2 weeks in Sweden and Norway have been cancelled due to travel visa issues. This was completely unexpected and sudden and me and my team have done everything that can be done to avoid this, but finally I must leave Europe today or be in an illegal situation. Though I'm no stranger to illegal situations, I'm moving around too much to risk a black-marked passport.
I hate this. We've been searching for any other way. Anybody that is moving around right now will attest to the fact that visas of any kind in any place are high commodity lately and the process is tricky and lengthy and often arbitrary, to say the least. We thought we were covered and good as gold.. until a rejection notice just a few days ago. Since that moment I've tried every possible solution for an extension. If there was another way I'd take it. This is completely out of my control.
I really hope my Scandinavia friends will understand and give me a chance to make it up to them. I look forward to that.
