Helaas is het concert dat Russ zou geven op zaterdag 1 oktober 2022 in AFAS Live, Amsterdam, afgelast. Kaartkopers ontvangen een e-mail van Ticketmaster met meer informatie over de annulering.
In een officieel statement heeft Russ laten weten:
“I have to cancel the European tour. I could make up excuses so that I don’t lose money but the reality is mentally I feel like shit. In the last 24 hours shit happened that has led to some extremely lonely and empty realizations about things in my family life that have my head feeling like it’s gonna burst. I feel terrible about doing this to my European fans. If you no longer suppose me after this, I get it. If you don’t believe me reason, I get it. I never had to do this and I feel very defeated but I can’t crash and burn and give y’all shitty performances on the way out. You will be refunded from your point of purchases. I’m very sorry and like I said, the last thing I wanna do is let my fans down which obviously, that’s what I’m doing so any negative feelings any of you end up having towards me, I understand. If this happened during the middle or the end of the tour I’d probably push through but it’s happening before the first show, knowing that I gotta go out and give my 100% energy to 24 shows is something I cannot do. I truly don’t expect people to care of to have empathy. Everyone has their own shit they gotta deal with. I just ask y’all to try and understand that maybe you don’t understand… that in it of itself is understanding. I need time to make sense of certain things and for once I need to put myself first. I’m really sorry. I love y’all. – Russ’’
