I am very sorry to report that Steve Ignorant and friends have had to postpone their imminent shows in the USA and Canada. As of 7th March, the band had not been issued US entry visas, despite months of preparation and despite having delivered all of their documents to their visa agent well in advance of usual guidelines. With only 3 days to go to the first show and no hope left of getting the visas in time, the only decision that could be made was to let the fans know and move the shows.
All shows have been moved to new dates and all gigs will be confirmed as soon as visas have been issued.
Here is the official statement posted by Steve Ignorant on his blog:
"I'm really really gutted to have to let you all know that we have to reschedule our USA and Canadian gigs. There's a delay with the issue of the visas we require to enter the USA. We hope it will all be sorted soon but we will NOT be able to make the scheduled gigs.
I would ask everyone to please hold onto your tickets and give us about a week to announce new dates. We will reschedule as soon as possible and tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates, however, if you think 'fuck it, I want my money back', then do that and I will completely understand.
