Live Nation is the latest company to sever ties with Russia as the three major music groups support aid to Ukraine.

"Live Nation joins the world in strongly condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine," Live Nation said in a statement. "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."

Live Nation’s move follows Universal Music Group’s declaration: “We stand with our partners who are on the ground delivering urgent humanitarian aid to Ukrainian refugees. The situation in Ukraine affects millions of innocent civilians with urgent humanitarian needs—from food and water to shelter and clothing. UMG and our employees are proud to support organizations providing assistance to refugees in need.”

Sony Music and Warner Music Group are also involved in aid efforts.

Oak View Group pledged to not work with Russian interests earlier this week.
