Roger Waters cancels concerts in Poland amid dispute over comments on Ukraine war

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has canceled planned concerts in Poland amid outrage at his stance on Russia’s war against Ukraine, Polish media reported on Saturday.

An official at Kraków’s Tauron Arena, where Waters was scheduled to perform two concerts in April, said they would no longer take place.

“Roger Waters’ manager has decided to retire – without giving any reason,” Tauron Arena Kraków’s Lukasz Pytko said on Saturday in comments reported by Polish media.

The Waters’ This Is Not a Drill concert tour website did not list the Kraków concerts previously scheduled for April 21 and 22.

Kraków city councilors were expected to vote next week on a proposal to make Waters persona non grata, expressing “outrage” at the musician’s stance on the war in Ukraine.

Waters wrote an open letter to Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska earlier this month, in which he accused “extreme nationalists” in Ukraine of “putting your country on the path to this catastrophic war.”

He also criticized the West for supplying arms to Ukraine, blaming Washington in particular.

Waters has also criticized NATO, accusing it of provoking Russia.
