Joining the list of bands who have cancelled tour dates in Russia (such as Green Day and Bring Me The Horizon) are twenty one pilots, whose July date in Moscow has been pulled.

"Due to the current tragic events, it is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of our Moscow show," the band say. "This news feels insignificant given the gravity of what is happening. Peace will win and we hope for a time we can visit you again. We stand with Ukraine."

Tyler and Josh are set to head to the UK and Europe this summer, before then returning to the States for The Icy Tour 2022.
