Following in the footsteps of Bruce Springsteen canceling a North Carolina concert in the wake of its anti-LGBTQ law, musician Bryan Adams has canceled a Mississippi concert for the same reason.

“Mississippi has passed anti-LGBT ‘Religious Liberty’ bill 1523. I find it incomprehensible that LGBT citizens are being discriminated against in the state of Mississippi,” writes Adams in an Instagram post. “I cannot in good conscience perform in a State where certain people are being denied their civil rights due to their sexual orientation.

“Therefore i’m cancelling my 14 April show at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. Using my voice I stand in solidarity with all my LGBT friends to repeal this extremely discriminatory bill. Hopefully Mississippi will right itself and I can come back and perform for all of my many fans. I look forward to that day. ‪#‎stop1523‬.”

Last week, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed the “religious freedom” bill into law in order to “protect” “religious believes” and “moral convictions.”
