Former New Order star BERNARD SUMNER's new group BAD LIEUTENANT are looking forward to their upcoming U.S. tour after finally resolving work visa issues which forced them to postpone the shows.
The band, which also features Phil Cunningham and Jake Evans, was due to support the Pixies in Chicago, Illinois and New York in November (09) - but had to pull out of the gigs due to immigration issues.
But the band is now busily preparing for its April (10) shows, after sorting out the appropriate work documents.
Sumner says, "As promised we are coming to the U.S. to play our re-scheduled dates in Chicago and New York with the addition of the Coachella Festival and a concert in San Francisco. We are really looking forward to playing our songs live for our fans in the U.S. It's been quite some time since I have played in America, and we are all very excited about the prospect."
