Glasvegas Rocker Blames Barat For Missed Show

LATEST: GLASVEGAS frontman JAMES ALLAN has blamed former DIRTY PRETTY THINGS star CARL BARAT for the visa problems which forced the band to scrap a show in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Scottish rockers were forced to cancel Monday night's (29Sep08) concert, because Allan failed to get the right documentation in time for the trip.
And the singer insists the problems started on a recent night out with Barat - because he stayed out so late he overslept the next morning and missed his appointment at the U.S. Embassy.
Allen says, "Carl came along to our gig in London and afterwards I chilled out with him and ended up missing the appointment in the morning. It was a comedy of errors. He's aware of it and is aware that he cost me a few thousand quid."
The Boston gig has been rescheduled for 5 January 2009.
