Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has canceled planned concerts in Poland amid outrage over his stance on Russia’s war against Ukraine, Polish media reported Saturday.

A spokesman for Krakow’s Tauron Arena, where Waters was scheduled to perform two concerts in April, said they would not take place.

“Roger Waters’ manager has decided to quit – without giving a reason,” Tauron Arena Krakow’s Lukasz Pytko told Polish media on Saturday.

The website for Waters’ This Is Not a Drill concert tour did not list the Krakow concerts previously scheduled for April 21 and 22.

City councilors in Krakow are expected to vote next week on a proposal to label Waters persona non grata, expressing “outrage” at the musician’s stance on the war in Ukraine.

Waters wrote an open letter to Ukraine’s first lady Yelena Zelenska earlier this month, accusing “extreme nationalists” in Ukraine of “setting your country on the path to this disastrous war.”

He also criticized the West for supplying weapons to Ukraine, blaming Washington in particular.

Waters also criticized NATO, accusing it of provoking Russia.
