Message from promoter Chris Metzler:
Attn Touring US musicians coming to the UK – DO NOT COME INTO THE UK VIA IRELAND, your COS workpermits are worthless. Sad to say I just had a tour from a Texan singer songwriter cancel due to the British/Irish immigration turning them away in Dublin. Thousands have been lost to the artists, the promoters and myself. They had the correct COS (work permits) but due to the 1971 Control order legislation being re-introduced and the current Brexit situation they were told to go back home.
They are not the first to have this happen in the last weeks, read here for more https://folkagent.wordpress.com/ Please warn any US acts (or anybody requiring a COS) traveling to the UK not to come in via Ireland or they will live to regret it. #FuckBrexit
