Huge news from The Boss. Bruce Springsteen has cancelled Sunday's show in Greensboro, NC because of the so called "Bathroom Law" that the state recently passed.
A number of companies have come out against the law but Springsteen is the first high profile musician to cancel a show in the state. And he did it only two days before the show was to take place.
In his words:
I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th. Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.
