Live Nation to Cease All Business in Russia

Live Nation has announced that it will no longer promote concerts or conduct any business in Russia, NPR reports. “Live Nation joins the world in strongly condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” reads the company’s statement. “We will not promote shows in Russia, and we will not do business with Russia. We’re in the process of reviewing our vendors so we can cease work with any and all Russian-based suppliers.”

The news has landed the same day that Spotify announced plans to shutter its Russia office indefinitely. Multiple artists have protested Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by canceling concerts in the country, including Russian rapper Oxxxymiron, who canceled six sold out concerts. Green Day, HEALTH, Nick Cave, and more have followed suit in canceling Russian shows. The Killers and Iggy Pop both pulled out of this summer’s Park Live festival in Moscow.
