Many of you must be confused and must not be knowing what it means. Why would be Garry back to UK? Even if he would have a concert, why would he share such a thing?
Flashback of what happened 8 years ago, back in 2011, GARRY WAS DEPORTED FROM UK.
Garry first went to UK in 2002 under a different identity and claimed asylum but the UK border agency refused it. Then they placed him on immigration bail. He should have reported regularly to the agency, but instead, he absconded. In January 2008, Garry was caught driving without insurance. But he obstructed that police officer and received a criminal conviction. The UK Border Agency did not know his whereabouts until then.
UK Border Agency placed him back on immigration bail. Simultaneously, they worked to obtain emergency travel documents to remove him because he did not have a passport.
After obtaining an emergency travel document, officers visited his address in Hanover Road, Rowley Regis in October 2009 but discovered he had absconded again.
Garry was finally arrested on 27 October 2011. UK Border Agency temporarily released him in November while considering further representations. But they rejected these and he was re-detained on 16 December. After that, he got deported to India on 12 January 2012.
After when he came back to India, he continued working on his music career and gave a lot of superhits. And as you all can see for yourself, he is acing milestones now.
Now, he will return for his first gig in the UK in November, headlining an event by E3UK. One of Britain’s leading Asian entertainment companies, E3UK is organizing the event. It will take place at The Arena Birmingham (formally known as The Barclaycard Arena) on Saturday 2nd November 2019.

Garry Sandhu stated, “My past has molded me and although I cannot change things, I have learned a great deal over the last 10 years. I deeply regret and am remorseful for my past actions, when it comes to my Immigration history in the UK. Staying within the remit and boundaries of the law is something every upstanding citizen should do. I am grateful to all my fans and the UK Immigration services/Home Office for allowing me the opportunity to return back to the UK.”
Director of Eventimm, Gurpreet Singh stated, “It’s been a long but rewarding journey working with Mr. Garry Sandhu. I believe everyone deserves a second chance in life and no matter what obstacles you face in life, with the right help and support I believe anything is possible.”
