Punk icon John Lydon and his band Public Image Limited have been forced to scrap a show in Orlando, Florida due to visa issues.

The This is Not a Love Song hitmakers were scheduled to perform in the city on Wednesday night (03Oct12), but the British rockers have taken to Twitter.com to alert fans to the cancellation.

A tweet reads: "We deeply regret to announce that tonight's show at Orlando has had to be cancelled due to unforseen (sic) Visa problems.

"More info later today. The rest of the tour will continue as planned. We are very sorry for any inconvience (inconvenience) this may have caused."
