Boy George denied US visa

Share |

Boy George, remember, that Boy George? He may not be able to make it to his concert in the US this July, 20. He planned to perform at Showbox at the Market as a leg of his tour but was denied US visa. This was planned to be his first tour in a decade. He was also hoping to do a performance at the city of New York’s Department of Sanitation annual Family Day event Aug. 17.

Despite the visa denial, the tour has not been cancelled yet. His management office released the following statement, which makes a plea to U.S. authorities:

This is not in respect of anything he has done in the past, but because he is facing a trial in November in London for something that happened in April 2007. George’s lawyers in London have absolutely forbidden us to speak about the facts of that case, and all we can say is that George is astounded at the decision and is having lawyers here in the United States look at it in hope that someone will change their minds.

George has not been convicted of anything in London and there is a presumption in the western world of innocense until proven guilty.”

Boy George, who is now 47 years old, was on the top of his success on the British new wave scene as the frontman for Culture Club. They recorded such hits as ‘Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?’ and ‘I’ll Tumble 4 Ya’. Here is what he has to say about the visa denial:

I am getting my life together and was really looking forward to performing in concert for all my loyal fans. I love America, and I am really sad that it appears that I am not allowed to visit a place I have called home at various times in my life. But what has happened to me has nothing to do with the American people. They are kind people with big hearts.”

Boy George’s management statement goes on to say:

George really would love to come to American and repay his American fans’ loyalty, and that is why we are asking the U.S. authorities to reconsider their decision.”

Poor Boy George, he probably doesn’t have many fans left, but denying visa to music idol is just wrong, even if he or she is a drug addict. Imagine denying visa to Amy Winehouse?

Remeber this cool music vid? Enjoy.
