Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, Annie Lennox of Eurythmics and Dave Rowntree of Blur are among the artists who've signed an open letter asking the British government to seek an alternative to Brexit.
The letter, which was published by the Music4EU group, says, “Brexit represents a significant threat to the U.K.’s music industry... In the post-Brexit U.K., there is a clear risk that reaching consumers and fans will be more expensive, and international markets will be harder to access. Live events will run the danger of being delayed or even cancelled, which would undermine the financial and cultural benefits that this vibrant sector brings to U.K. [economy].”
The British parliament was set to vote on terms for leaving the European Union on Tuesday, but the vote was canceled by Prime Minster Theresa May.
