Musician Tom Grennan is the latest act to cancel performances in Ukraine and Russia amid “devastating violence”.
he Little Bit Of Love singer, 26, has canceled his tour dates as Russian and Ukrainian soldiers fought street after street for control of Mariupol, where at least 2,300 people died.
The battle for the strategic port on the Sea of Azov raged on Monday as the Mariupol City Council declared that several thousand residents had been taken to Russia against their will.
The Ukrainian city was encircled and bombed in what is believed to be some of the worst combat of the war.
Bedford-born Grennan tweeted: “In light of current events I will be canceling my shows in Russia and Ukraine which were due to take place in the summer of 2022.
“My thoughts are with the brave people of Ukraine and all those who are resisting this devastating violence and seeking peace.”
Grennan joins the likes of rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, former One Direction star Louis Tomlinson and American rock band Green Day in canceling concerts in Russia over the conflict.
