Live Nation says “we will not do business with Russia”
Live Nation Entertainment, one of the biggest live entertainment companies in the world, has announced that it will cease doing business with Russia, following Russia's invasion of Ukraine. NPR posted a statement from Live Nation, which reads, "Live Nation joins the world in strongly condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine. We will not promote shows in Russia, and we will not do business with Russia. We're in the process of reviewing our vendors so we can cease work with any and all Russian-based suppliers."
This news follows Green Day, Nick Cave, The Killers, Iggy Pop, and other artists cancelling upcoming shows in Russia. Yesterday, Spotify revealed that it has shuttered its Russian office indefinitely.
