A long-awaited tour of the US West Coast by outspoken reggae artiste Eek-A-Mouse, which was scheduled for this month, has been postponed to August, owing to a delay in the processing of his visa.
This according to the Weekend STAR.
Billed 'Eek-A-Mouse Returns to the America West Coast Tour', 11 dates were advertised for May 4 through to May 21, in Tuscon and Phoenix, Arizona; Las Vegas, Nevada; San Francisco, California; Seattle, Washington; and Oregon.
The tour would mark the reggae artiste's first time in the US since 2013.
Eek-A-Mouse had been actively promoting the series of shows and his long-awaited return to the US, and although disappointed at the delay, he sees it as a hiccup.
The reggae artiste spent six months in a North Carolina jail and was released after a plea agreement. He pleaded "no contest" to misdemeanour charges for assault on a female and attempted crime against nature, with his time already spent in prison covering his sentence.
The entertainer was banned from the US for five years, from 2013 to 2018, and has been living in Europe.
