The German artist's decision comes in the wake of Donald Trump's controversial immigration ban.
Though the German artist did not directly mention Donald Trump's immigration ban, it appears Henke's decision is a response to political turmoil in the United States. "I am not willing to apply for a visa anymore, and I am not willing to pretend I am a tourist when coming for concerts," he wrote, adding: "A word for all my friends and fans in the US: I do everything I can to support you. I know you are as devastated as I am. This is not against you."
Henke's not the first to make such a move—last week the British DJ Dave Clarke took to Facebook to say he would "not be renewing" his artist visa.
