Last night, Russell was slated to perform for 5,000 fans at the Casino Rama in Ontario. Unfortunately, he never made it to the venue as border officials refused him entry to the country. Unlike what happened in Japan, Russell never even made it into the country, tweeting his dismay and his apologies to fans while he fought to travel into Canada. He wrote:
"HELP! I'm gonna be late for Casino Rama show unless someone can force Canadian customs officials to let us land in Orillia."
When it was clear the border officials wouldn't be letting him cross into maple leaf territory, Russel tweeted again, saying:
"Tonight's Casino Rama show postponed. I'm sorry. I can't enter Canada. We must abolish the borders between our nations AND our minds."
You need to look into a way to fix this problem, Russ. This can't just keep happening whenever you want to go someplace that isn't America or Jolly Old England.
Get it done!
