GLASGOW (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Due to continuing visa and immigration issues, Scotland’s The View has regretfully been forced to cancel their May US tour dates. All tickets will be refunded. In addition, fans and ticket buyers should stay tuned for an exclusive song and special message from the band. The View will still be releasing their fantastic debut album, "Hats Off To The Buskers", on 1965/Columbia Records on May 8th. The release will have an extra 3 bonus tracks exclusive to the US release.

The View has achieved platinum status in the UK and reached #1 on the charts week of release in Britain. The View have been touring tirelessly for the last year, acting as a headliner on the Shockwaves NME tour throughout Britain, and even touring Japan on their victory march.
