|Russell Brand Tweets his disappointment|
While one Russell was in one part of the City being feted, another Russell was being denied. British Funnyman Russell Brand originally was slated for a Show at Casino Rama, just north of Toronto this evening, but alas after flying-in at the last minute, he wasn't granted entry into the Country. The Show as of now is being postponed, but needless to say those 5,000 Fans who eagerly were awaiting to see him tonight will be left shut-out, some who were already en route a two-hour drive from Toronto to see him.
This of course is nothing new for Brand who this past May, was denied entry to Japan based on past legal troubles. Aren't there Organizers and Handlers who ensure this type of stuff goes through smoothly before the Talent fly in? My heart goes out to all of you disappointed Fans. I know how much labour goes into going to a Show at Casino Rama!
UPDATE: So the PRs at Casino Rama helped clean-up this mess by declaring that Brand apparently never even left California on Saturday due to plane failure. The Show has been rescheduled for Thursday, December 8, 2011. Believe what you will!
