Aerosmith cancel Ukraine concert due to civil war

Aerosmith have pulled the plug on their July 2nsd show in Kiev, Ukraine due to the ongoing political upheaval in the country.

“With much regret we have decided to cancel the Aerosmith show in Kiev on July 2nd,” announced event promoter National Corporation Of Entertainment. “It is impossible to produce this show in Ukraine while there is civil war. We can't ensure safety to the artists, crew and the audience. We can't ensure safety of the equipment. We're facing many economic and technical difficulties and in a state of civil war those difficulties are impossible to resolve. Therefore we just can't carry out the show on July 2nd and are very sorry for that.”

“We all did our best to present the show in Kiev but we have no option but to cancel,” they added. “We hope that Aerosmith will be able to perform in Ukraine at some time in the future when there is peace and more stability in Ukraine. We are arranging refunds for ticket-holders”.

Details regarding refunds are available here.

The Kiev show was the final date of Aerosmith’s current Let Rock Rule European tour.

The Boston rockers return to North America for shows with Slash staring July 10 in Wantagh, New York.
