British rapper Lady Sovereign has been forced to postpone three U.S. tour dates after failing to secure the appropriate work visa. The diminutive lyricist was due to play gigs in New York, Chicago, Illinois, and Los Angeles, starting on Monday (26Jan09) night, but the shows have now been pushed back and will kick off next Monday (02Feb09).
A post on her website reads: "Sorry! Just got word that the U.S. secret show dates have been delayed to February 'cause of visa issues. Dates are confirmed, but waiting to share 'em."
