Tricky postpones North American summer tour due to visa delay
British DJ/producer Tricky has postponed his summer trek through the U.S. behind "False Idols" after running into problems obtaining a visa.
Originally slated for mid-June, the major market outing now gets underway Oct. 1 with a rescheduled date in Philadelphia. The 13-city tour concludes with an Oct. 25 appearance at the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit in Asheville, NC.
All tickets will be honored at the rescheduled shows.
"I'm really sorry to have to tell you that I have to postpone the forthcoming U.S. dates," Tricky said in a press release. "It is 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."
"False Idols," Tricky's 10th studio effort, surfaced May 28, marking the first release on his own False Idols label. The 15-track effort follows Tricky's 2010 release, "Mixed Race."
