Russia’s invasion of Ukraine shook the world. The invasion is resulting in considerable amount of casualties on both sides with fears of further excalation. Due to this, numerous artists have pulled out from Russia, including Green Day.

As the world fears escalation on the Russia-Ukraine war, its only fair that artists retreat from the area for their own safety. The Killers made this very clear. They are pulling out of an upcoming performance in Moscow.

Of course, the reason behind the pull out is the Russian invasion of Ukraine. A rep for the band told TMZ that The Killers will no longer be playing in the Park Live Festival. The event is currently set for July in the Russian capital.

Park Live is an international music festival. It is held every summer in Moscow. The event usually draws huge crowds and big-name bands from across the globe.

This year’s lineup includes acts like My Chemical Romance, Sum 41, Gorillaz, Deftones, Iggy Pop, Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot and Limp Bizkit.But its highly likely that the artists will not perform fearing the war situation. It will be interesting to see if others follow The Killers and drop out.
