We stumbled upon an interesting Instagram post from Newsboys drummer, Duncan Phillips this afternoon. Well, maybe not stumbled, but saw since we’re constantly checking all of his many amazing posts. We were pretty surprised about what he posted.
It looks like Canadian fans everywhere will be pretty bummed once they find out the latest news from the band. Apparently for some unknown reason, Canadian immigration officials wouldn’t allow the band across the border. Which means that Canada will not get to enjoy the LoveRiot Tour.
Here’s what Duncan wrote:
‘Once again it deeply saddens me and my band #newsboys that the #Canadian #immigration officials denied us entry! There is no sane rationale to this impass, leaving us only to speculate on the reasons why! We love #Canada and the #Canadian fans who were coming to the show, and it pains us that we cannot bring the #Loveriot #tour to you! There is no hate here, just confusion and frustration! We love you #Canada.’
Sad news for everyone involved. Here’s to hoping things will be resolved quickly.
