George's rep said the singer was "devastated" he would not be able to play in the States for what would have been the first time in a decade, but that his legal team is working hard to get clearance for the '80s icon to convince officials for a do-over decision.
"George is astounded at the decision and is having lawyers here in the States look at it in the hope that someone will change their mind," the singer's management said in a statement. "George has not been convicted of anything in London and there is a presumption in the Western World of innocence until proven guilty."
"He is clearly not considered any form of risk," his management said. "George really would love to come to America and repay his American fans' loyalty and that is why we are asking the U.S. authorities to reconsider their decision."
I think it serves him right for charging so much to see him without Culture Club. C'mon over $70 bucks to see him perform? Sorry he is not worth. If he really wanted to repay his American fan' loyalty he would charge half the price and then I would fight to have him come in to the country.
