SLIPKNOT have postponed their previously announced shows in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus after Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine last week.

Yesterday, the band released the following statement via social media: “Unfortunately we will be postponing our Kyiv, Moscow, and Minsk performances. New dates will be forthcoming.

“We had looked forward to reuniting with our fans in these incredible cities, coming back together after global lockdown. But we take this step in support of our community and in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, for whom the struggle continues, in a new and more terrible form. We also acknowledge that our Russian and Belarusian fans are overwhelmingly united with the Ukrainians in their fight for peace.

“The safety and well-being of our global families is, and always will be, our top priority.”

SLIPKNOT are just the latest in a growing number of artists who have chosen to protest Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by canceling their shows in the country.
