It seems Wilco is taking a stand against the recent legislation passed in Indiana. The following announcement was posted to their website and social media:
This is the only cancelation of the tour and is specifically in response to Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The concert scheduled for May 5th at the Taft Theater in Cincinnati will go on as planned.

It's hard to believe that it hasn't quite been a year since the first Sylvan Esso album came out. The odd yet perfect marriage of Nick Sanborn's electronics with Amelia Meath's voice feels like a familiar friend by now. And yet seeing these songs performed softly — and captured in the light of day — made them feel fresh and lovable in new ways.
It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since we first partnered with the Cincinnati Zoo to bring you Tunes & Blooms. What started out as a one-time concert in the cold rain before a crowd of about 100 people, now regularly draws close to 5000 people every week. It really is the place to be every Thursday night in April. Tunes & Blooms features some of the best musical acts our region has to offer playing amongst the tulips of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden. Each week, the Zoo dispenses with the usual admission fee at 5pm allowing visitors to roam the animal exhibits for free before settling down to enjoy live music from 6p to 8p. Bring a picnic or choose from the excellent food options available on site. They even serve local craft beer at the Zoo.
