Iggy PopGreen Day, and other high-profile Western artists have canceled upcoming concerts in Russia as the country continues its military assault on Ukraine.

The rapid cancellation of Russian shows falls in line with new sanctions imposed on Russia by the United States, the European Union, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and even historically-neutral Switzerland due to the country’s widely opposed Ukrainian invasion, which began on February 24th.

Green Day last week canceled a May 29th show at Moscow’s 45,000-capacity Spartak Stadium. As the band noted in a since-expired post on its Instagram Story, “With heavy hearts, in light of current events we feel it is necessary to cancel our upcoming show in Moscow at Spartak Stadium. We are aware that this moment is not about stadium rock shows, it’s much bigger than that. But we also know that rock and roll is forever and we feel confident there will be a time and a place for us to return in the future. Refunds available at the point of purchase. Stay safe.”

Iggy Pop on Tuesday officially canceled a summer 2022 appearance at Park Live Festival in Moscow. In a statement posted to his Twitter account, the Godfather of Punk’s team explained, “The festival appearance if Iggy Pop on the 10th of July 2022 is canceled. In light of current events, this is necessary. Our thoughts are with the Ukrainians and all the brave people who oppose this violence and seek peace.” The post ended with a hashtag, #StandingWithUkraine.

A representative for The Killers also reportedly confirmed to Billboard that the Las Vegas-native band is pulling out of its scheduled appearance at the event in reaction to Russia’s actions in the Ukraine.

Other notable international artists still set to perform at the month-long festival in June and July include My Chemical RomanceSum 41GorillazDeftonesFive Finger Death PunchSlipknot, and Limp Bizkit.

New York-based indie-pop trio AJR also canceled an October 2022 show in Moscow. The band offered a “thank you to our Russian fans who oppose their country’s unprovoked and criminal behavior” along with the cancellation announcement.

One Direction alum Louis Tomlinson was due to route through both Kyiv, Ukraine (July 4th) and Moscow, Russia (July 6th) as part of his 2022 world tour. “Due to the recent events in Ukraine,” the English singer-songwriter said in a tweet on Monday, “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.”

Nick Cave on Tuesday canceled a pair of upcoming Bad Seeds dates in Russia and Ukraine. “Our thoughts and love go to the brave people of Ukraine, their heroic leader, and all those suffering from this senseless war,” the Australian multi-hyphenate said in a statement. “Ukraine, we stand with you, and with all those in Russia who oppose this brutal act. And we pray that this madness is brought to a close soon.” As of now, dates in neighboring Eastern European countries like Poland and Slovakia are still scheduled to take place.

Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand also canceled summer 2022 shows in St. Petersburg and Moscow. As the band explained early Tuesday morning in a straightforward statement, “We are cancelling our Russian shows that are scheduled for this summer. The only reason for this is the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian state. We love Russia. This great country has inspired our band through its art and literature and since we first played there seventeen years ago, we have built a rich and deep relationship with our Russian fans. Since Thursday morning, we have spoken to many of our friends in Russia via social media and have encountered unanimous opposition to this violence and solidarity with our Ukrainian friends. We know you see the madness of your country’s leadership. We know you do not want war. We do not want war. Despite the tragedy of this situation, we still burn a flame of optimism in our hearts and look forward to the day when we can return in a time of peace and share the joy of music again.”
