Fans of Tekashi 6ix9ine who were looking forward to his shows on Thursday and Friday got a bit of bad news. The rapper was forced to cancel both shows because of issues with immigration. Both Tekashi’s shows in London and Manchester, UK were cancelled for June 21 and June 22, respectively.
At this time it is still unknown what the issues were that cause United Kingdom officials to deny 6ix9ine's entry. The rapper is currently being investigated for his possible involvement in the Chief Keef shooting that took place in May 2018. Earlier that same month, Tekashi was wanted by police for allegedly choking a 16-year-old at a mall in Houston. UK policy says they can deny entry to anyone convicted of criminal offense but it is unclear if this is related to any of Tekashi's legal battles.
Venue organizers noted that the shows would either be rescheduled by a different promoter for another date or ticket holders would be refunded for their purchases.
