Skepta is no stranger to having international tour plans interrupted, and now his ongoing visa issues have struck once again. The UK grime lord has been forced to cancel his upcoming performance at Lollapalooza after being denied entry into the United States for a second time. Festival organizers took to Twitter to break the news and announce Joey Purp as a replacement. Lollapalooza takes place in Chicago from July 28-31.
Due to ongoing Visa issues, Skepta will not perform at Lollapalooza this year. Joey Purp will perform on Perry’s at 2:30, Friday of #Lolla.
