Reports recently hit the internet that Lil Wayne was denied a visa to tour in Europe because of his criminal record. According to a rep for Wayne’s “I Am Still Music Tour,” the rapper has yet to even file an application for a visa.
“No visa was ever filed, nor were there any tour dates announced or tickets sold,” said the rep to MTV News. “Lil Wayne is currently headlining his ‘I Am Still Music Tour’ across the U.S. and Canada with plans to extend the tour through North America this summer. We hope to bring the ‘I Am Still Music Tour’ to the U.K. in the later half of the year.”
Currently, the tour is set to end May 1 in East Rutherford, New Jersey. His opening act, Nicki Minaj, is in talks to join Britney Spears’ upcoming tour.
Snoop Dogg notably had difficulty getting admitted into the U.K., but was finally granted entry last year.
