Australian pop sensations The Veronicas, comprised of twin sisters Jessica and Lisa Origliasso, have been forced to cancel the US leg of their Sanctified Tour after members of their band were unable to obtain work visas due to a “technical malfunction” at the immigration office. The duo took to Twitter to announce the cancelation, writing, “It’s with deep sadness we’ve been forced to cancel all dates on our forthcoming US Sanctified tour.”

Explaining the situation in a separate post on Facebook, the sisters state, “After exhausting every option while trying to find a way for our tour to go ahead, it’s with deep sadness we’ve been forced to cancel all dates.

You can view their announcement on Twitter:

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>It's with deep sadness we've been forced to cancel all dates on our forthcoming US Sanctified Tour. Complete info: <a href=”http://t.co/GYPMYxXM4a”>http://t.co/GYPMYxXM4a</a></p>&mdash; The Veronicas (@TheVeronicas) <a href=”https://twitter.com/TheVeronicas/status/610872426994511872″>June 16, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src=”//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>

The announcement obviously links to their Facebook post, which you can also read below:

<div id=”fb-root”></div><script>(function(d, s, id) {  var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];  if (d.getElementById(id)) return;  js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;  js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3″;  fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));</script><div class=”fb-post” data-href=”https://www.facebook.com/TheVeronicas/posts/10153470060184430&#8243; data-width=”500″><div class=”fb-xfbml-parse-ignore”><blockquote cite=”https://www.facebook.com/TheVeronicas/posts/10153470060184430″><p>Due to a technical malfunction with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs' overseas passport and…</p>Posted by <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/TheVeronicas”>The Veronicas</a> on <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/TheVeronicas/posts/10153470060184430″>Tuesday, June 16, 2015</a></blockquote></div></div>

The duo were also scheduled to perform in Buffalo, New York on Wednesday (today), but have, of course, had to cancel that performance also.

The seven-date U.S. leg was the final portion of their world tour, with The Veronicas already playing shows in Europe and Australia earlier this year. Their Sanctified tour is the pair’s first since their 2009 Revenge Is Sweeter tour, which took them through Australia, America, Japan, England, and Scottland.
