Alick Macheso has been forced to postpone his show in Ireland that was scheduled for tomorrow to December 2 following a delay in the processing of visas for the tour.

The musician and his band were supposed to perform in Dublin courtesy of Testimony Entertainment Promotions, but they will have to wait for another month before making the trip.

The development comes after a similar occurrence in July when Macheso travelled with five instead of eight band members for his UK tour when others failed to get visas. Macheso's publicist Tich Makahamadze said they were not sure of reasons for delay of visas since they submitted their applications about three months ago.

He said they expected the visas to be out within the stipulated period because most of their visa applications are usually processed within two months.

Macheso is supposed to travel with drummer Givemore Chokumanya, guitarists Tafi "Fire" Nyamunda and Mike "Maikoro" as well as vocalists/dancers Jonasi Kasamba, Seleman "Majuice" Mupochi and Wilson "Twitter" Meka.
