Boy George Cancels U.S. Tour After Visa Snag

By |

Boy George was forced to cancel his U.S. summer tour — his first trek here in over a decade — after failing to secure permission to enter the States. George faces trial in November for charges filed against the Culture Club singer dating back to April of 2007 when an escort accused the Karma Chameleon of holding him against his will, and thus U.S. authorities have denied his visa, even thought British authorities permitted George to travel anywhere after paying his unconditional bail. George is especially disappointed he'll be unable to perform for employees of New York's Department of Sanitation on August 17th, saying he planned the concert "as a way to thank the DSNY and the workers' families for the kindness shown to him during his community service with them in 2006."
