ELTON JOHN Demands Government Brokers New Brexit Deal For Musicians to be able to perform abroad with less paperwork
Sir Elton John, one of UK pop music’s greatest ever exports has accused the British government of “screwing up” in their failure to secure visa-free tours for British musicians wanting to go to perform in the EU after Brexit.
It was revealed in January by The Independent that the EU had in fact offered to allow British musicians visa-free touring in the 27 member states but that the government had refused the offer.
He concluded, “If you hate every note I’ve recorded… you still need to support musicians’ ability to tour because if Brexit prevents many new musicians from touring, the only artists who are going to have any meaningful kind of live career are big, august, mainstream artists like me. And, trust me, I don’t want that any more than you do”.
