Bryan Adams won’t be singing Summer of 69 in Mississippi any time soon. On Sunday, the rocker issued a statement that he was canceling his April 14th concert at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. According to USA Today, he said he was protesting a religious liberty law that allows groups and businesses to refuse service to gays on religious grounds.

“I find it incomprehensible that LGBT citizens are being discriminated against in the state of Mississippi,” Adams said in a statement. “I cannot in good conscience perform in a State where certain people are being denied their civil rights due to their sexual orientation.”

Adams is a Canadian rocker best known for his hits Summer of 69, Everything I Do I Do It For You, and To Really Love a Woman.

Adams is now added to the list of celebrities who vow to boycott Southern states that have passed bills in favor of protecting religious freedom, which in turn allows discrimination against LGBT individuals. In March, celebrities such as Anne Hathaway and Julianne Moore called for Georgia to not pass religious liberty legislation, and earlier this month, Bruce Springsteen cancelled a concert in North Carolina because of a similar law.

Supporters of the Tennessee law say that it protects Christians who hold traditional views of marriage and gender roles. Christians in the state sought the right to reject practices against their beliefs without legal ramifications. This includes not providing services for same-sex marriage.

The Mississippi law will become effective on July 1.
