The Game Cancels Australian Tour Due to Visa Problems

Australian fans won’t get to see The Game. While the Compton rapper was scheduled to perform Down Under, he was turned away at the airport on Friday (Feb. 19) because he lacked the proper visa.

Due to immigration issues, Game has canceled his four shows, which were set to start Monday. The Department of Immigration and Border Protection broke the news to TMZ.

“Unfortunately the tour by The Game is now cancelled,” read a message on Metropolis Touring. “All ticket holders will be entitled to a refund from point of purchase. Please allow a few days for us to liaise with the ticketing companies but we will work as quickly as possible to organize this and keep everyone updated. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.”

The Game made headlines this week after meeting up with former G-Unit member Lloyd Banks in Dubai. Despite 50 Cent’s disapproval, their reunion was all positive.

“It was instantly all good energy, so we chopped it.. threw back a few dranks & took a flick for old times sake to kill the negativity & tension that had once tore one of the GREATEST RAP GROUPS ever apart !!!” said Game.


In response to "50"……. When I heard banks was in Dubai, I told my niggas, "we're goin thru to holla"…. My team thought I was on some bullshit & thought we was going thru to kick off some bullshit… I then told them, "Naw, we ain't on that… We on the other side of the world enjoying ourselves, 1/2 y'all ain't never even left LA… So we gone go thru, show banks party love & im going to personally let him know that me & him are 💯… It's been 11 years since I seen banks & the funny thing is, I told myself.. When I got there I was going to go off his energy… & when we seen each other, it was instantly all good energy, so we chopped it.. threw back a few dranks & took a flick for old times sake to kill the negativity & tension that had once tore one of the GREATEST RAP GROUPS ever apart !!! At some point, you gotta be a MAN about certain situations so last night that's what I decided to do.. It was MY DECISION !!! Whether Buck, gone admit it or not… I talk to that nigga all the time.. As recent as few months ago when I was in Nashville & it was all love…. Don't front now my nigga… This is ME !!! As for me & you "50"… Our past has proven we could both get on some gangsta shit if need be, being that lives have been lost on both sides….. Lives have been taken from friends, & fathers taken from kids.. Which could've easily been MY LIFE or YOURS….. If you choose to ignore the GROWN MAN approach & continue to harbor HATE for me & my side… That's your decision. I can't speak for Banks, but my pride was swallowed last night along with a shot of Hennesey in that club…… Whatever it's gone be is what it's gone be, I said my peace #HateItOrLoveIt
