Banky W Apologises For Cancelled EME American Tour, To Refund Tickets

The Empire World Tour, which was supposed to start on June 24, 2011 has been cancelled for undisclosed reasons. Banky W released a statement via twitter
'As far as the EME tour goes… it hurts me to say we tried our very best to pull it off. We did everything we were supposed to. Twice. Truth is, there were some issues that are beyond our control, and we kept pushing, trying to resolve 'em. We worked hard and spent a sh*t load of money in the process… but it wasn't under our control.


In anycase, we're STILL working on resolving said issues. And the minute they are, we'll launch a couple of make up dates immediately. I want to give a shoutout to all the fans who have been so patient with us. I promise, we're trying our very best. It sucks but we're trying. They say "U live and U learn". We've learnt too many painful lessons from this whole experience. We'll be back stronger in Jesus Name.
If you bought tickets already, ur entitled to a full refund. Trust me we'd rather be rocking with u than losing money, so pls understand. And lastly, we will resolve these issues we're having. And the minute we do, we'll put together a couple of make up dates. I'll be the first to let you know when that's happening, I promise'. Thank you, I'm very very sorry. But I promise we'll make it up. Stick with us we'll make this work.'

    Even if it was visa refusal,did you expect him to put that in the press release?
    He did the decent and proper thing in stating their case.
    I am not his biggest fan but i appreciate the fact that he runs his career with a professional touch.
    Not all these ones that the only thing in their head is Moet and Hennessy.

    Visa refusal is not a crime punishable by death,so you guys should stop stressing it.

    I totally respect them on a new level now. Rather than sit on the problem, they did the honorable thing by apologizing and will refund. Good luck to ya!

    The promoters were probably all those jobless people that can't make things happen, and pls banky, make sure your people get visa first before setting up a show!

    A lot of the people who comment on this blog cannot progress in life and this is not a curse but a fact. Why are people so bitter and why must they always say negative things about people who are doing well for themselves. To think some fool even said poor management did not get Wizkhalifa a visa. Have u ever tried to get an american visa. Do they care how much u have in your bank account or how popular you are? I am a proffessors daughter. My dad taught at one of the best schools in the U.S. He was in very high demand. The first time my older brother and I tried to get a visa, they denied us, even though their country was benefiting a great deal from my dad...They eventually gave us, at thier own time and schedule...also to the one who said something about Yahoo yahoo boys, where in the world did that come from. Banky doing yahoo? gosh some of you are going to die in your hate and bitterness walahi no be lie
