Ed Sheeran is the latest musician to cancel a concert in St. Louis, Missouri. 

After U2 announced they would not be performing on Saturday, the 26-year-old singer announced on his website that he too would be canceling his show on Sunday due to the protests in the city. 

"With the safety of the fans being of upmost concern, and after consulting with local officials, who could not fully commit to providing a sufficient amount of police and other city services support, we felt it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel Sunday night’s show," Messina Touring Group said in a statement posted on Sheeran's website. "While we regret to have had to come to this decision, we do look forward to returning to St. Louis as soon as Ed’s schedule will allow in 2018."

Tickets for Sheeran's show will be refunded. 

U2 also released a statement in regard to canceling the show, reading, "We cannot in good conscience risk our fans' safety by proceeding with tonight’s concert. As much as we regret having to cancel, we feel it is the only acceptable course of action in the current environment."

A slew of singers have canceled or postponed shows this summer, including Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber. Here are more details into why Bieber canceled the remaining concerts of his Purpose tour:
