The Game’s Canadian Tour Dates Canceled After He’s Denied Entry to Canada
The Game has reportedly been denied entry into Canada, and consequently, his upcoming tour dates in Canada have been canceled.
Canadian entertainment website 10 at 10 reported Wednesday (Jan. 9) that the Canadian Government denied the rapper's application for a Temporary Resident Permit. They shared a screenshot of the message that was sent to Game from the government, along with a statement from the International Touring Agency.
“Due to circumstances beyond the artist, management, agency and promoter’s control, we regret to announce that “The Game’s Canadian Tour 2019″ is canceled due to the Canadian Government denying the artist’s TRP application to enter legally into our country,” the International Touring Agency's statement read.
The agency went on to confirm that the rapper will not be held responsible for the tour's cancellation, and all ticket holders can get their money back at the point of purchase.
This isn't the first time The Game's been denied entry to Canada. He was previously denied in 2011. While Game said they'd detained him while they were planning to process his inadmissibility, the Canadian Border Services Agency said his claims were inaccurate ones.
Despite this new bit of bad news, Game didn't seem to let it stop his day in its tracks. Last night, the "Down to Fuck" rapper was spotted in a Los Angeles studio with Meek Mill and "Started From the Bottom" producer Mike Zombie, who shared a photo with the pair on Instagram.
Meek Mill and The Game had a pretty intense beef back in 2016, after Game thought that Meek had informed police that he'd robbed Sean Kingston. Last month, Meek confirmed in a Twitter Q&A that he'd open to working on music with Game once again. A short time later, The Game himself revealed that Meek had reached out to him to squash their beef after Meek was released from prison last year.
