Entertainer Jimmy Buffett says he’s not canceling two North Carolina concerts even though he thinks the state enacted a “stupid law” limiting protections for lesbians, gays and transgender people.

Buffett says he will perform scheduled shows in Raleigh on April 21 and Charlotte on April 23. But in a blog post he says scheduling of future shows will depend on whether the law is repealed.

Bruce Springsteen’s cancellation in Greensboro over the weekend put the spotlight on big-name performers coming through the state.

Buffett condemns the law on his blog and says he thinks most of his fans feel the same way. But he says fans bought tickets long before the law was enacted last month. He adds: “I am not going to let stupidity or bigotry trump fun for my loyal fans this year.”
