Bruce Springsteen cancels show, citing state’s new law
GREENSBORO – Refunds begin Monday morning for Bruce Springsteen’s canceled show in North Carolina.
The boss scrapped Sunday night’s show in Greensboro to protest the state’s House Bill 2. The new law, among other things, bans transgender people from using public bathrooms of the gender they identify with. A Greensboro coliseum rep says people who bought physical tickets can get their refunds staring at 11 a.m. Monday. Fans who bought tickets online have already received their money back. According to reports, more than 15,000 tickets had been sold for the Springsteen show. Springsteen joins the likes of Canadian rocker Bryan Adams, who also cancelled a show this week in Mississippi due to LGBTQ related laws.
The Greensboro coliseum estimates the cancellation will cost it about $100,000 dollars in net revenue.
