Samir Hussein/RedfernsBryan Adams has cancelled an upcoming concert in Mississippi due to the state’s controversial “religious freedom” bill.

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1523 into law last week. The bill makes it legal for business and public employees to deny services to LGBT people or others if they feel serving them would conflict with their “sincerely-held religious beliefs.”

On Sunday, Adams announced the cancellation of his April 14 concert at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. He wrote on his Facebook page, “I find it incomprehensible that LGBT citizens are being discriminated against in the state of Mississippi. I cannot in good conscience perform in a State where certain people are being denied their civil rights due to their sexual orientation.”

He concluded, “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.”
