Australia Doesn't Want Young Thug But He's Good In New Zealand

Young Thug had to scrap a show in Australia over issues with immigration officials but he's still heading down under.

(AllHipHop News) Young Thug's issues with the country of Australia continue, and it's costing the rapper valuable business.

Thugger, who now goes by the name SEX, had to scrap a series of shows in Australia, due to ongoing Visa Issues.

Young Thug had a show lined up in Sydney to headline the inaugural Sydney City Limits music festival on Saturday, as well as a headlining slot alongside Future in Melbourne.

"Sydney City Limits is devastated to announce Young Thug will no longer be making the journey to Australia to perform at the festival this Saturday. We know that many of our patrons will be just as disappointed as we are.

“Unfortunately, Young Thug has been unable to comply with the requirements for processing his Australian entry visa application and this has now made it impossible to secure visa approval in time for Young Thug to travel from the USA in time to appear at Sydney City Limits,” said Live Nation Australia.

According to reps for Live Nation in New Zealand, the rapper was granted a Visa into their country and will perform as scheduled at the Auckland City Limits spokeswoman as planned.

"Regardless of the Australian situation, we are working to get Young Thug to come to play his NZ shows," the representative said.
