The National Cancel Shows in Russia, Ukraine

The National have cancelled their upcoming concerts in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev due to the political upheaval in Russia and Ukraine. The band has also announced that they will be offering refunds to ticket holders, and that they hope to perform in Eastern European cities at some point in the future.

The band full statement, which was posted on their Facebook page earlier today, reads:

Due to the ongoing political crisis in the region, we are sad to report that we have decided to cancel our shows in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev this summer. Ticket refunds are available at the point of purchase. We remain hopeful of coming to play for you in the future and we sincerely hope this current instability resolves in a positive, democratic and peaceful way. Take care of yourselves and we hope to see you soon.

We recently spoke with The National frontman Matt Berninger about his band’s latest album, his brother’s film about the band, playing with Trey Anastasio and more in this new interview.

Good call by The National! Who would want to play over there right now? Too risky. Now, I fully support Rage Against The Machine doing a mini-reunion tour over in that region.
