Peter Gabriel Cancels Weekend Concert in Kiev
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.11.2014



Peter Gabriel cancelled his concert last night in Kiev due to concerns over the violence in the Ukraine. Gabril was set to perfom in the city but became the latest to call off a show in the region, which is facing continued unrest and tension over Russia's annexation of territory. Aerosmith, Motorhead, Depeche Mode and others have also called off recent or upcoming shows in the region.

In a statement on his website, Gabriel said, "Due to the on-going unrest in Ukraine it has become clear that the security of the touring personnel and equipment cannot be guaranteed during the planned visit to the country and this has presented us with significant logistical difficulties that we have been unable to resolve.

"Any delays or damage as result of the situation in Ukraine would not be insured and would also potentially jeopardise future shows on the tour, something which we feel we also have to consider. It was due to our desire to do everything possible in order to make the show happen that the decision to cancel the show is now being made at such late notice. It is our sincere hope that the situation is resolved in a positive and peaceful fashion and we can return to the Ukraine in the not-too-distant future."
