Unfortunately The Canadian Government has rejected the TRP (Temporary Resident Permits) application to pre approve The Game to enter Canada. This is very disappointing news for everyone involved, including The Game, his Management, The Agency, all the Buyers/Promoters, the venues and of course the Fans. We understand that many fans will be upset with this news, we ask that you please read the statement below released by the Agency explaining the details. TICKETFLY.COM WILL BE EMAILING ALL TICKET PURCHASERS AND ISSUING A FULL REFUND. . . . . PLEASE SWIPE LEFT TO READ THE OFFICIAL STATEMENT.
Also, the promoters state that Canadian government doesn’t allow for the pre-approval process; needing to see that the tour is legitimate with tickets on sale.
In addition to other steps taken, Game’s team completed the above and still received a denial. The promoters released a statement:
It is with great sadness and frustration that the Canadian government could not see the overwhelming desire and benefit, and no risk to Canadians to let artist the Game do this tour and to fulfill such a wanted need from the businesses, the promoters, and the fans it would have benefited in such a positive way. Please know that every effort was made, by all involved, to obtain a successful application. We, along with management and promoters are as disappointed as the fans and would like you to know that the decision was out of our control. The final decision and outcome were made by the Canadian government. The Game would also like to express his disappointment as he was excited to see and perform for his Canadian fans.
While addressing refund requests, the promoters state:
We ask that ticket holders please bear with us and allow at least 24 hours following this announcement for promoters to organize refund procedures with their applicable ticketing companies. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your understanding. Like you, we are disappointed but appreciate the amount of work and effort that went into this tour from all involved.
