Add pop stars Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas to the list of artists canceling North Carolina shows over House Bill 2.

They were scheduled to play two North Carolina dates this summer, including Raleigh’s PNC Arena on July 2. But they put out the word via Twitter late Monday afternoon that the shows were off, asking for fans to “stand united with us against this hateful law.”

For ticket holders, refunds will be issued at point of purchase. This follows similar cancellations by Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Pearl Jam, Boston, Ani DiFranco and Cirque du Soleil, among others.
