World-renowned for booking some of the most insane foreign band exclusives, reunions, and first-time performances in the United States, Psycho Las Vegas’ penchant for unthinkable and seemingly impossible booking comes with high risk, and high reward. We’ll never forget the feeling of seeing Arthur Brown perform for the first time in the US since the 70’s at Psycho Las Vegas 2016, or Psychlona and Cult of Fire making it from across the pond last year against all odds as some of 2021’s only foreign bands to perform in the US. Admittedly, there have been some disappointments along the way amongst the countless highs. Regardless, Psycho Las Vegas will never stop trying to make dreams come true for our fans and those artists who struggle to make the journey to the US because of tightening immigration and performance visa requirements. For the past 5 years we’ve enlisted our own legal team to make sure we’re involved in every step of the visa process, but that doesn’t mean we can control the final outcomes. Even with approved visas, performing artists still need to pass interviews at their local consulate, background checks by the Department of Homeland Security, and finally after all of that, customs agents upon departure and arriving in the US. As much as we would love to be there every step of the way, once Psycho has successfully petitioned for their visa, most of the remaining process is out of our hands and up to the will of the gods. While sometimes extreme and dramatic measures work, like petitioning US Congressmen and women to expedite or even bypass protocols and procedures (seriously, how do you think those bands got in last year?!), our best efforts are not always enough. So, we ask one thing of you, as a fan, and that is to please be understanding that this process is timely, costly, and truly a labor of love. While we can’t make any promises until each artist walks through the doors of Psycho Las Vegas, you have our word that we will continue to break the mold, reach for the stars and do our best to make every dream-booking a reality.
