Two months before their Honda Civic Tour kicks off, the singers announced that they would be cancelling two shows in the state.
"After much thought and deliberation, we have decided to cancel our Honda Civic Tour: Future Now shows in Raleigh and Charlotte," the performers shared on social media.

The pair continued, "North Carolina's discriminatory HB2 law is extremely disappointing, and it takes away some of the LGBT community's most basic rights and protections. But we will not allow this to stop us from continuing to make progress for equality and acceptance."
