Wilco’s Indy show back on after Pence signs RFRA Clarification Bill

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Chicago-based rock group Wilco will perform in Indianapolis this spring after announcing earlier this week they were canceling their May concert in response to Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Wilco sent the following tweet Friday afternoon:

Earlier this week, the band had announced the canceled concert on its Facebook and Twitter pages, writing: “The Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act feels like thinly disguised legal discrimination to us. Hope to get back to the Hoosier state someday when this odious measure is repealed. Refunds available at point of purchase.”

Governor Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act Clarification Bill Thursday.
