Mr Eazi‘s much publicized tour of North America has been postponed due to major issues with his International passport.
UPDATE: Earlier today, we reported that Mr Eazi may not be able to meet his performance dates for his tour of the United States and Canada.
We can now confirm that the tour has been postponed with new dates set to be announced in the coming weeks.
The singer made this announcement on Wednesday afternoon, March 20, 2019 in a post on his Instagram page saying, ”It is with you in mind that I make this frustrating and disappointing decision, to postpone and reschedule the March dates on my Life Is Eazi – Vol 2, North American Tour.
Whilst i Anticipate my visa to be issued anytime now, i do not know for certain when this will happen. It is this uncertainty that has created so much frustration & Led to this very last minute announcement…
For the moment only MARCH dates of the tour are cancelled. We will advise on April as we still push for an answer from the US embassy. ”
Earlier over the weekend, Mr Eazi had missed out on performing at the 2019 SXSW conference and festival which went down in Austin, Texas in the United States due to visa issues.
It now seems that the issues have remained unsettled as Mr Eazi has announced that he may be forced to make changes to the announced March dates of his tour of North America that was supposed to see him perform in cities like Atlanta, Toronto, Minneapolis, Detroit, Boston and more.
In an Insta story shared on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, Eazi again apologized to his fans, explaining the situation he has with the US embassy and how he could not travel out of the UK at the moment.
“I wanna thank all my fans for the support & understanding thus far, the update is that my passport is still at the US Embassy here in London and as such even tho i have my Canadian visa, i cannot travel to make it to my show in Canada as i cannot leave the UK without an international passport. My team will be providing details on rescheduling & refunds etc bless up.
Also if by close of business tomorrow i have no word on my passport, i will be rescheduling all my March Tour Dates to avoid further disappointment, of my fans,” he shared.
With three shows listed in the coming days, the possibilities of Eazi fixing things in time for his performances look highly unlikely.
The Banku Music boss who released his album, ”Lagos To London” in 2018 to critical and commercial reviews while also touring major European cities had concluded plans to take his music to his fans in North America in a tour that was to cover 16 cities with tickets already being sold.
