During a funny banter in his TAB show in Pittsburgh
, Trey Anastasio
has confirmed what we already supposed about why he and Phish
won't come to Europe right now.
Responding to a loud fan during the acoustic set (right after Driver), he said :
"I'd LOVE to com back to Canada.
It might be a little bit trickier for me. I'm not supposed to go to Canada right now... Sorry !
Canada scares me.
I like to people. It's 'cause me, me and folk at the border don't like me very much, these days.
I'm sure saying that publicly is going to improve my chances. Don't tell anybody I said that, will you ? I LOVE the people at the border.
It's between me and the US..."
So Trey isn't allowed to leave the USA as a consequence of his arrest drug back in december 2006. Thing is that I can't find on the web the complete sentence to know when he will be allowed again to leave the country. If somebody find the info, please, let us know !
