Due to the terrible events in Manchester we have worked with Uefa to agree that our performance at the Cup Final will be cancelled. It doesn’t feel right to us to continue. The UK has been a huge part of our career and our hearts are with them now and to people all over the world suffering from any effects of violence, of any kind. We were very much looking forward to this but the occasion doesn’t feel right for us. Music will always bring us together but we must respect how sad people feel today. All our love. Axwell and Sebastian.
