We’ve had so many people in recent years ask why Loreena is not performing in the United States more frequently. Please be assured this is not due to any lack of interest or desire. It’s quite the opposite, in fact. We actually had a tour more or less built for the fall of 2013, but in the end had to abandon it. In recent years, there have been increasing government regulations surrounding immigration and taxation which have made it more and more onerous for Loreena to tour there.
Every country has its own rules and conditions and the United States, along with a few other countries, have chosen to adopt some of the most challenging, especially when you get into large touring parties and supporting infrastructure. No doubt, this is one of the reasons so many artists have been recently appearing with few, if any, side musicians and crew.
Rest assured, we will continue to discuss and monitor this situation. In the meantime, we are always grateful to see our American friends at any of Loreena’s other performance locations. We are most grateful for your understanding.
