My Chemical Romance Cancel Concerts in Ukraine and Russia

    My Chemical Romance have canceled their upcoming shows in Russia and Ukraine. “With deep regret, My Chemical Romance is canceling our Ukraine and Russia shows in June 2022,” the band wrote on Instagram. “We hope to be able to play for the fans there soon.”

    The band was set to visit Russia and Ukraine as part of the European leg of their reunion tour this June, performing in Saint Petersburg on June 16 before headlining Moscow’s Park Live Festival the following day and Kyiv’s U Park Festival on June 19.

    My Chemical Romance are the latest act to cancel tour dates due to Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, following the likes of Nick Cave, Björk, The Killers, Yungblud, HEALTH, and Green Day. Live Nation announced it was ceasing all business activity in Russia, while Spotify has closed its Moscow office indefinitely.
