PETER GABRIEL: Cancels Kiev Show
Peter Gabriel has canceled tomorrow’s (Saturday) scheduled concert in Kiev, citing security concerns amid Ukraine’s ongoing political turmoil.
In website statement, he says, “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.”
Gabriel hopes that once things are settled “in a positive and peaceful fashion,” the show can be re-scheduled “in the not-too-distant future.”
Other artists who’ve pulled out of shows in Kiev include Aerosmith, Depeche Mode, the Finnish metal band Children of Bodom and new age musician Yanni.
