U.K. new electronic music artist Tricky will have to cancel some of the dates on his US tour due to further visa problems. The tour will now start in San Francisco at the Treasure Island Festival and conclude with a re-arranged date in New York on October 26.
Tricky has some juvenile offences for joyriding and forgery of the crown and the US authorities require full disclosure before granting any visas. The new hold-up has been in getting this information from the UK police authorities.
Regarding the cancellations, Tricky says, "The most upsetting thing about this, whatever happens it seems like it's me letting people down. Other people have always dealt with visas for me and it turns out that they have not advised me properly. Now I have been advised that this was going to be straightforward and easily done in time for this tour and now this has happened."
Visas are expected to be granted in time for the shows in San Fransisco, New York, Asheville and LA and Tricky will looking to tour fully in 2014. All upcoming Tricky US shows are listed below.
10/19 San Francisco, CA - Treasure Island Music Festival
