US Tour Cancelled

This just in: Due to continuing visa and immigration issues, Scotland’s The View has cancelled its American tour originally set for May. (All tickets will be refunded at the place of purchase.)

In addition, HARP is told that fans and ticket buyers should “stay tuned for an exclusive song and special message from the band.” The View will still be releasing their debut album, Hats Off To The Buskers on 1965/Columbia Records, in America on May 8th; the U.S. release will have an extra, exclusive, 3 bonus tracks. The group went platinum in the UK and reached #1 on the charts week of release in Britain touring constantly all last year and headlining the so-called” Shockwaves NME Tour” in Britain.

Here’s some fun trivia: The View are the first Scottish band to debut at # 1 with their debut album since the Bay City Rollers in 1974 with #Rollin#. “Wasted Little DJ’s” took home an NME award this year for “Best Track”.
