NOTE : This concert is cancelled because the US INS has denied him entrance - here's Robert Ottavano's statement on the subject :

[he was denied entrance ( ESTA Visa ) by the US INS due to having played a concert in Iraq 5 years ago] "a tour called "Culture, an instrument of Peace" in Iraq (Baghdad, Sulaimaniya and Erbil) funded and supported by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation in November 2012.

"I've been to the US two years ago, I've regularly received the ESTA without any problems, obviously the Trump Administration, introducing this limitation at the entrance will also raise the walls to the good people instead of pondering the fact that him and about 67 GOP congress people voted out Obama's Executive Order that prohibited mentally ill people from buying weapons.
That’s what this world has come to - money buys anything, including Congress."
Monday 16 October @ Outpost,
