Tracy Morgan cancels performance in Mississippi due to House Bill 1523


TUNICA, Miss. (WJTV) — Comedian and actor Tracy Morgan is canceling his show in Tunica that was set for the end of this month.

Morgan, who is on his “Picking up the Pieces” tour, was set to perform at the Horseshoe Casino’s Bluesville on April 29.

Casino officials tell us the cancellation is due to the signing of House Bill 1523. They said his team released this statement:

“Tracy did not make this decision lightly.  He very much looks forward to rescheduling his tour dates in the area after the ‘Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act,’ is either repealed or heavily amended.”
