Bryan Adams cuts show to protest against anti-gay law in Mississippi
Canadian singer Bryan Adams has cut a show in Mississippi to protest against a new state law that will let people with religious objections deny services to same-sex couples.
The cancellation came after rocker Bruce Springsteen called off a North Carolina gig to show his opposition to a new law there barring transgender people from choosing bathrooms consistent with their gender identity.
Supporters of the law say it is needed to keep women and children safe in restrooms. Adams, 56, who was to perform tomorrow in Mississippi, called the state's measure "extremely discriminatory".
