It's unfortunate news for Ben UFO and his fans across the seas, as he has had to cancel upcoming shows in Canada and the States.
Alongside Joy Orbison, the gigs that have been effected by this include a b2b in Vancouver, San Francisco and LA's FYF Festival.
Ben UFO's visa application has apparently not yet been approved by the US State Department and for further precautions they have seized his passport.
This was all posted on Ben UFO's Facebook page yesterday evening, the day the tour was meant to start. See more details here.
Amidst this, Ben UFO still managed to be gracious and offered his condolences to his fans. "I can only offer sincere apologies to the promoters and to the folks who were hoping to see me play, and promise that I'll try and make it up to you as soon as possible," he added.
Whilst the Vancouver show has been completely axed, the San Francisco gig will still go ahead with Joy Orbison August 21.
