The Killers have canceled their headlining set at Moscow’s Park Live festival in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a rep for the band tells Billboard.

The news follows Iggy Pop‘s announcement earlier Tuesday that he would be dropping off the festival lineup, calling the decision “necessary.”

“Our thoughts are with the Ukrainians and all the brave people who oppose this violence and seek peace,” Pop said.

Park Live runs over multiple weekends throughout June and July. Other listed headliners include My Chemical Romance, Placebo, Gorillaz, Deftones, Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot and Limp Bizkit.
