From the BBC
Bruce Springsteen has cancelled a concert in North Carolina, joining business groups in condemning a state law that rolls back protection for gay and transgender people.
The law invalidated several local anti-discrimination measures that protected gay and transgender people.
Go Bruce! The Boss! Taking a concert that was planned off his schedule, not playing North Carolina because of a bad law. I guess he told his planning people to remove it from the upcoming sales.
Springsteen and his band were scheduled to perform in Greensboro on Sunday.
Oh so not before selling tickets, but just before the gig is to go ahead. From the statement, the tickets will be refunded, but what about this?
@OKJAYHAWKGRL @washingtonpost what abt us driving 2 hours from VA & spending $250 for non-refundable hotel? How is that right? It isn't— Allen Wilkerson (@CAllenWilkerson) April 9, 2016
And the Ticketmaster booking and postage fees? Is he going to pay that back? Are you going to pay them back? And really, are you going to at least even acknowledge that for your own "raising your voice", you're going to piss off a lot of people who were looking forward to this and that you've just taken a dump on their weekend?
The classy thing to have done would have been to have played and at the gig to say it's your last one because of the change in the law.
