Legendary Japanese heavy metal band Loudness denied entry to the US

 

This is just fucking nuts. Today news has gotten out that legendary Japanese metal band Loudness was refused entry into the USA. The venue that made this announcement is the Reggies Rock Club and the full announcement is as follows:

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.

There are many questions that need to be answered but clearly people’s disappointment can be aimed at America’s new insane travel policies that can only be compared to as chaotic a situation as entering any third world country. No one knows what the fuck is going on and the higher up you go, the more asinine the reasons seem to be.

Loudness is one in many bands who have either been denied or have canceled their US touring plans outright.

    Can you confirm that this story is accurate? If so which policy exactly prevented the entry of a rock band into the US?

    Loudness has had trouble with US tours in the past…especially in the ‘flyover’ states. I have either bought tix (that had to be refunded) or seen a cancelled appearance five times in Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, and Tennessee. Seems that their US tour manager might have problems with logistics.
