Bad News. We are sorry to announce the cancellation of our European Tour.
Even though Tommy’s passport is good until August. And we would be flying back to the US in mid July…They would not let us board the flight due to a rule that we were not aware of where the passport for landing in Italy has to be valid for at least 3 months before its expiration date.
Though we could get an emergency passport, the real problem happened when Lufthansa Airline would not credit us with new flights. So after fighting with them all yesterday we are out $5,000 in flights. No, they were not insured. They basically said tough luck.
Unfortunately, we do not have the funds personally or band wise to buy new tickets ($6,000 now) at this time and the tour is canceled.
We are very sorry. We will return to Europe in 2018.
