Liza Minnelli

Veteran singer/actress Liza Minnelli was almost forced to scrap a series of concerts in the U.K. after immigration officials refused her entry into the country.

The 62-year-old was stopped shortly after arriving at London’s Heathrow airport on Saturday night and questioned over her work visa.

Minnelli was subsequently denied entry after officials revealed she did not have the correct paperwork to perform in the U.K.

But the shows were saved after government officials at the U.K.’s Home Office stepped in to resolve the crisis. A spokesman for Minnelli says, "Liza’s team had applied for the correct permit, but it seems that they underestimated just how much time it would take to process."

Minnelli’s first show at London’s Coliseum on Sunday night went ahead as planned. The star’s U.K. tour concludes in Glasgow, Scotland on June 6th.
