Regarding their previously revealed stateside gigs this spring, Japanese heavy metal vets Loudness have been denied entry into the U.S., according to the Chicago Tribune:
The classic Japanese metal band, Loudness, was denied entry into the United States Tuesday night after arriving at Los Angeles International Airport due to the new immigration policies from the Trump administration.
Loudness was scheduled to appear at Reggie’s Rock Club Wednesday along with local acts Ironfinger, Pipe and Hessler.
The rest of the band’s U.S. tour has been canceled.
Reggie’s shed some extra light on the matter:
Due to the new strict policies the US government has placed on foreigners entering the country, Loudness was denied entry into the United States and sent back home this morning. All shows on the US tour are canceled. Refunds for Wednesday’s show will be issued at original point of sale.
Bummer! Loudness were set to play NYC at B.B. King on 4/25, Long Island at Revolution on 4/27 and Poughkeepsie at The Chance on 4/28 with Y&T [show will go on].
