The Los Angeles rapper is all set to headline NZ’s Bay Dreams music festival, due to take place at two sites in early January 2020.
According to Stuff, Immigration New Zealand has cleared Tyler’s flying visit and declared that he “is no longer deemed to be a potential threat to public order and the public interest.” His visa is “currently being processed,” the news site reports.
Back in February 2014, NZ’s border control blocked Odd Future from entering the country after it was decided they posed a threat to public order. As a result, the collective missed an opportunity to support Eminem at an open-air concert in Auckland.
Tyler and five other six group members were reportedly declined visas due to a 2011 incident in Boston in which some witnesses claimed group members incited fans to attack police officers.
In May of this year, the U.K.’s Home Office lifted Tyler’s years-long ban, allowing the artist to visit the territory in support his latest album IGOR.
