”You, the fans, have and always will be the most important people in my career as an artist. It is with you in mind that I make this frustrating and disappointing decision, to postpone and reschedule the March dates on my North American Tour.
”Whilst I anticipate my visa to be issued anytime now, I do not know for certain when this will happen.
”It is this uncertainty that has created so much frustration and led to this very last minute announcement. Some of you will be making travel arrangements, some of you may need a babysitter for the night, some of you may have taken time off work.
”It is these moments that I want to help you avoid, the unnecessary sacrifices that you will make as a fan, in the knowledge that I cannot be with you. Please know that my team and I have done all we can to avoid this, but we make the decision with your best interest at heart,” he said.
He also added that a full refund would be available for fans who would not be comfortable with the new dates yet to be announced.
