Singer Cancels University of Texas Show Because of Concealed Gun Policy

AUSTIN, Texas — Singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne canceled his Thursday show at the University of Texas’ Bass Concert Hall over the school’s policy to allow patrons to carry concealed handguns at the venue.

LaMontagne who won a Grammy for his 2010 album “God Willin’ & The Creek Don’t Rise,” announced the cancellation in a statement Tuesday.

“This Thursday’s show at Bass Concert Hall in Austin, TX has been canceled due to concerns over the state of Texas’ recently enacted campus-carry law, which allows licensed holders to bring concealed handguns into many performance venues on public university campuses, including the Performing Arts Center at The University of Texas at Austin,” LaMontagne said.
