Last week Tekashi 6ix9ine hit the road on his World Domination tour, kicking it off in Bratislava, Slovakia. The scheduled tour dates featured a handful of European shows, but the rapper has hit a roadblock in getting to them.

Tekashi was denied access into the UK border, spending 12 hours attempting to defend himself to the European patrol. He was set to play at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester tonight. Both the venue and the artist’s management put out a statement.

“It is with regret that we announce the postponement of the Tekashi 6ix9ine concert on Friday, June 22nd 2018. It has been confirmed that Tekashi 6ix9ine has been refused entry to the United Kingdom by UK Border Control, on arrival into the country this morning.”

Tekashi took to social media apologizing for the show cancellations, claiming it was a “paperwork issue.” A couple of hours after the incident, The Home Office made a statement proclaiming they “reserved the right to refuse entry to anyone convicted of criminal offences.”

The rapper has had his fair share of problems with the law. In 2015, he plead guilty to filming a sexual act involving a 13-year-old girl. This year alone, he’s also been banned from multiple L.A. clubs and venues.

The tour will presume it’s normal schedule Saturday, June 23 in Germany. As for the cancelled appearances, Tekashi will be extending the World Domination tour, which was supposed to wrap up July 6th, to add on the UK at the end. The ticket-holders will be entitled to full refunds.
