Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters Cancels Shows Over Mixed Feelings On War In Ukraine


Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters canceled upcoming concerts in Poland due to backlash over his beliefs about Russia's war against Ukraine, which he attributes to "extreme nationalists" in Ukraine.

Waters was planning to perform two concerts at the Tauron Arena in Krakowin in April, but an arena official confirmed the events have been canceled.

"Roger Waters’ manager decided to withdraw ... without giving any reason," Tauron Arena Krakow's Lukasz Pytko said Saturday.

The website for Waters' concert tour, "This Is Not a Drill," does not include the concerts in Krakow previously scheduled for April 21 and 22.

City council members in Krakow were expected to vote on a proposal next week to label Waters as a persona non grata. They planned to express "indignation" over his controversial views on Russia's war on Ukraine.

In an open letter to Ukrainian first lady Olena Zelenska early this month, Waters blamed "extreme nationalists" in Ukraine for setting the country "on the path to this disastrous war."

The British musician, also criticized the West, the U.S. in particular, for supplying weapons to Ukraine.

Additionally, Waters has criticized NATO and accused the alliance of provoking Russia.
