We regret to inform that tonight’s show (Saturday, May 21st) at Kharkiv, Cinema Concert Hall (KKZ) in Ukraine has been cancelled. This has absolutely nothing to do with John Lydon and Public Image Ltd and it will NOT affect any other shows.

PiL wanted to play tonight, and were very much looking forward to the show, but due to circumstances completely out of their control it is impossible for them to perform through no fault of their own. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment.

Please see statement below from Ukrainian promoters (in Russian). We hope it is the correct translation.
