On February 25, the pop trio announced over Twitter that they were cancelling their October show in Moscow along with prompting fans to share "accurate info" about the situation.

The three brothers, Ryan, Adam, and Jack Met wrote,

"We are sad to announce that we will be cancelling our upcoming show in Russia. Thank you to our Russian fans who oppose their country’s unprovoked and criminal behavior. Our hearts are with the people of Ukraine. At this point, the best thing you can do is share ACCURATE info."

Louis Tomlinson

The Always You singer, who had two scheduled performances in both Moscow and in Ukraine at Kyiv's Stereo Plaza in July, as part of his 2022 tour, announced on Monday that would no longer happen.

He wrote in a message shared to Twitter,

"Due to the recent events in Ukraine, I have to sadly announce that my tour shows in Moscow and Kyiv are cancelled until further notice. The safety of my fans is my priority and my thoughts go out to the people of Ukraine and all those suffering from this needless war."


The industrial rock band from Los Angeles announced via Instagram on Monday, that it would cancel their two shows in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The post read,

"Though we do not wish to penalize our fans for governmental decisions that are beyond their control, given the current state of affairs we will no longer be performing our previously scheduled shows in St. Petersburg and Moscow. Our thoughts go out to the people of Ukraine."


The English pop-punk singer released a statement to Twitter on Monday stating that he will not be playing in Russia this summer.

"I'm heartbroken to announce I will be cancelling my Russian shows scheduled for this summer. Heartbroken because I know the vicious and brutal acts of the Russian regime in Ukraine over the past week do not reflect the attitudes and ideals of the beautiful people who I have met in Russia in the past!"
"To the people of Ukraine," he continued, "My heart is with you -- you've already shown such strength and determination, resisting this needless invasion. Everyone deserves to be the creator of their own destiny, rather than having it forced upon them by acts of war and aggression. Ukraine, I promise I'll come back as soon as I can! My hear is with you, always. dom xx."

The designated "Godfather of Punk" explained in a tweet on March 1, that he would be dropping out of the Moscow held Park Live Festival in July.
