As a response to the passing of Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Wilco has canceled their only tour stop in the state in protest. The act has approved many discriminatory practices on religious grounds, which has been met with a lot of disapproval both inside and outside of Indiana. Here is the band's official statement on the matter:
"We are canceling our May 7 show at the Murat in Indianapolis. The "Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act" feels like thinly disguised legal discrimination to us. Hope to get back to the Hoosier State someday soon, when this odious measure is repealed. Refunds available at point of purchase."
