Louis Tomlinson has canceled his upcoming concerts in both Moscow and Kyiv in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

he, the 30-year-old former One Direction star, said his “thoughts go out to the people of Ukraine and all those who are suffering because of this needless war”.

Tomlinson will perform at the Stereo Plaza venue in the Ukrainian capital on Monday, July 4 before traveling to Russia to play at Circus City Hall in Moscow on Wednesday, July 6.

However, events have now been canceled with the official Tomlinson website displaying a “sales paused” message for both shows.

The singer said in a statement posted on Instagram: “Due to recent events in Ukraine, I have to inform you with sadness that my tours in Moscow and Kyiv will be canceled until further notice. .

“The safety of my fans is my top priority and my thoughts go out to the people of Ukraine and all those who are suffering from this needless war.”

American rock band Green Day was also among the actions that canceled scheduled performances in Russia in response to its forces entering neighboring Ukraine.

It comes after the Russian Grand Prix scheduled for September was canceled and the International Olympic Committee urged sports federations with other events scheduled for Russia or Belarus to do the same.

Tomlinson and former One Direction bandmates – Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horan – split in 2016 after five years together as one of the biggest boy bands in the world.
