Diddy Promises Free Gig To Apologise To UK Fans

LATEST: SEAN COMBS has pledged to return to the UK to perform a free concert to apologise to fans after being forced to cancel his concerts with SNOOP DOGG earlier this week (begs26MAR07). Snoop Dogg - real name CALVIN BROADUS - was refused a visa to enter the UK by the country's Foreign And Commonwealth Office and attempts to reverse the decision proved unsuccessful. Touring partner Combs has now announced he plans to stage a free gig in association with London radio station Choice FM to make up for fans' disappointment. Authorities have not given a reason as to why Snoop's visa was declined, but last year (06), the rapper received a police caution for affray following a fight in a lounge at London's Heathrow Airport. Days after his caution in May 2006, the UK Home Office said Snoop would be banned from the country for the "foreseeable future" due to his caution and his previous convictions for firearms and drugs offences in the US. Despite the ban, Snoop and Combs scheduled five dates in the UK in March and April (07) as part of their European tour, all of which are now cancelled.
