Bryan Adams cancels gig over anti-gay law


Global-Spotlight20160415MONTREAL: Canadian singer Bryan Adams has cancelled an upcoming show in Mississippi to protest a controversial law that opponents say discriminates against gay and transgender people, his website said Monday.

The 56-year-old rocker was scheduled to perform at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi on April 14.

Adams said in a statement that he “cannot in good conscience perform in a state where certain people are being denied their civil rights due to their sexual orientation.”

He also joined activists in calling for the state to repeal the “extremely discriminatory” law.
