Macheso delays Ireland show due to visa issue

Alick Macheso has been forced to postpone his show in Ireland that was scheduled to start from tomorrow to December 2 following a delay in the processing of visas for the tour. The musician and his band were supposed to perform in Dublin courtesy of Testimony Entertainment Promotions, but they will have to wait for another month before making the trip.

Speaking to The Herald, Macheso’s publicist Tich Makahamadze said they were not sure of reasons for delay of visas since they submitted their applications about three months ago. He said,

We applied for visas of nine people that were supposed to travel to Ireland for this week’s show, but the process has taken longer than we expected and we have postponed the tour to December. We submitted our applications about three months ago and the promoter also did his paperwork on time. We are not sure what led to the delay. When we were told on Tuesday that the visas were not yet ready, we realised we could not make it for tour and the promoter moved the date. We are getting feedback from the embassy tomorrow (today) and we will be able to tell what happened. However, we are hopeful the process will be complete soon and we believe most or all of the band members that are supposed to go for the tour will travel in December.
