Dieudonne confirmed he had to depart Canada, “but I will return,” he said on his Facebook page. “I will be in Montreal tomorrow ‘in peace,’” he wrote, using the name of his planned show.
That comment led some news reports to speculate that he might try to return and enter Canada again on Wednesday for his first show.
Dieudonne, 50, had sold out shows in three Quebec cities, including a Montreal art gallery that was vandalized in apparent anticipation of his appearance there.
He was slated to perform in Montreal starting Wednesday, and then move on to Trois-Rivieres and Quebec City.
After his arrival in Montreal, according to a report in the Montreal Gazette, he was detained in the airport’s customs area until the decision was announced not to let him in.
Dieudonné has been popular in Quebec since 2004, but less so in recent years. He had shows canceled in 2012 because of the controversy surrounding him.
