Björk’s Concert in Serbia Cancelled

Iceland’s Björk, who is currently on a world tour promoting her latest album Volta, dedicated her song “Declare Independence” to Kosovo during her concerts in Tokyo on Tuesday and Friday, causing her concert in Novi Sad, Serbia, in July to be cancelled.

Kosovo declared independence from Serbia last week.

The concert organizers in Serbia explained to Björk’s manager on Wednesday that they had called off her concert because of the unstable situation in the country, explaining they could not guarantee security for concert-goers, Morgunbladid reports.

“Maybe a Serb attended my concert [in Tokyo] and called home and therefore the concert in Novi Sad was cancelled,” Björk said.

Her stunt was covered in the media in Kosovo following the concert on Tuesday.

Björk has dedicated her song “Declare Independence” to different countries during her tour : to Greenland and the Faroe Islands when she played in Denmark and to the Basque Country during her concert in Spain.
