Sharing is Caring
A. Rippin Production presents:
Against The Grain | The Vaginas

We are very sad to announce that the North American tour for Hank has to be postponed (not cancelled) until later dates this year.

This is due to an issue/fine that occurred back in the 90’s, and the same issue has previously been no problem solve when he received a working visa in 2003, for example.

The reason this is now delaying the visa is because of the same Waiver that’s needed back then, from Homeland Security is now all the sudden taking way longer than expected.

We are extremely thankful for the help and assistance from the U.S Embassy in Oslo, which has been invaluable for the production.

We have been told that this is due to the ongoing Government Shutdown and we cannot get a straight answer on exact day this will go through. Hence why we are forced to postpone this tour until later this upcoming summer 2019.

Thank you for your support and understanding in this.
