You can forget about seeing Tricky in the U.S. during June. Evidently not having his papers in order has forced the British singer/producer/actor to push his tour back until fall when he returns to play a couple of music festivals.
Word from Tricky’s representatives is that “unforeseen U.S. visa issues” are preventing his entry into the U.S. for his tour supporting his new album, False Idols. Whatever those issues may be, it appears Tricky expects them to be cleared up by October.
“I’m really sorry to have to tell you that I have to postpone the forthcoming U.S. dates.
“It’s a situation that is completely beyond my control due to a U.S. visa issue. All I can do is go through the proper channels and secure the right visa. I hope you’ll bear with me and I’ll make sure that the rescheduled shows are worth the wait.”
Here’s the revised schedule:
Oct. 1 – Philadelphia, Pa., Union Transfer
