PAUL DI'ANNO, the former frontman of Iron Maiden, has had to reshedule his planned tour of the US. The trek has been postponed until June as the musician had not secured a proper working visa to be able to enter the country.
The new dates are:
May 30 - Santa Ana, CA - The Observatory
Di'Anno completed his first North American tour in early 2010, 17 years after he was deported following a prison term for guns and drug offenses. In 2011 Di'Anno was jailed after he falsely collected U.K. government benefits by claiming he suffered nerve damage to his back that prevented him from working. Due to a number of health issues, including a knee problem which will require surgery soon, Di'Anno announced in July that he will stop touring next year.
And, yes, I did just put this news up so I could use this impressive photograph!
