Man with many piercings denied entry to Dubai

18 August 2014, 07:57

Dubai - A Dubai nightclub that hoped to feature a man who holds the world record for having the most piercings says he was refused entry to the Gulf city because of security concerns.

Cirque Le Soir said in an emailed statement Sunday that the club did its best to get Rolf Buchholz into the country on Friday but their efforts were unsuccessful. The German man has 453 piercings, including many in his face and genitals, according to Guinness World Records.

Buchholz had been scheduled to appear at the nightclub in the Fairmont Hotel. The club opened in Dubai in 2011, and like a sister venue in London promises an over-the-top circus atmosphere to wow late-night partygoers.

Police and immigration officials at the airport did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
