Vandervelde grounded

I'd like to believe it must have been that half-smoked joint he had in his pocket in 1991, when he was busted at a keg party, listening to Bel Biv Devo, that kept him on the ground. But sadly, it wasn't.
Recently Chicago's David Vendervelde had some issues with immigration as he embarked on his overseas tours.
David's manager recently wrote:
Just wanted to let you know that due to a paperwork issue with David and the Moonstation House Band's UK work permit, we are having to cancel all the UK dates for this tour.
Our sincerest apologies - please know that this problem was beyond our control, and that the band was geared up for a great string of shows!
We are in the midst of trying to figure out how to continue with the remaining EUR dates, so please stay tuned.

I was just joking about the pot reference, but I imagine booking a European tour must be akin to building a pyramid with munchkins.
Hopefully it gets worked out. I bet those puddle jumpers would love Vandervelde.
