Last week, the England band Bad Lieutenant announced that they were forced to cancel their four U.S. tour dates due to delays with their visas. More stringent immigration laws and changing visa parameters resulted in an inability to process the necessary paperwork.
“We were all so very excited about coming to the States to play our new music for our American fans,” said Bad Lieutenant’s Bernard Sumner, “and are extremely disappointed that on this occasion, we won’t have the opportunity to do so. We plan to reschedule the Chicago and New York shows along with some additional U.S. dates in Spring 2010.”
The four Bad Lieutenant dates that have been canceled are:
11/18 – Chicago, IL – Park West
11/19 – Chicago, IL – supporting the Pixies
11/21 – New York, NY – Webster Hall
11/23 – New York, NY – supporting the Pixies
Bad Lieutenant’s Spring 2010 dates will be announced soon.
