The ex-Iron Maiden singer Paul Di'Anno's US tour won't happen after all. It was supposed to start in January and was postponed until May/June, and then re-scheduled again for the end of this year. Now it has been announced that the tour is cancelled due to issues with the booking agent.
Official statement: "Due to a Snake (supposed USA booking agent) ripping everyone off in every way possible known to man (and a few ways not heard of yet) the USA tour will not be going ahead. After waiting and waiting and waiting and lies and lies and more lies (and then just a few more lies and bullshit) just like happened to many others before me - I have had to admit defeat to this lowlife and forget about the USA tour for now.
