The band made the announcement on social media Saturday (October 6), citing private matters for their resignation from the annual music ceremony. “We’re very sorry to share that we’re no longer able to perform at this year’s @AMAs due to a personal family matter,” the group shared in a statement on Twitter over the weekend. “Sending lots of love to the other performers, and we’ll be there in spirit.”

By the way, Taylor Swift will open the American Music Awards. She will perform “I Did Something Bad” off her 2017 album, Reputation album.
