Or anyone else. Pearl Jam and Springsteen sit alone together atop that mountain.

Yeah I have mixed feelings about this whole cancellation thing.

I totally agree with the message but feel horrible for people that planned on seeing the shows...especially those who spent money on travel.

Yeah, i support the cause too, but it sucks for the fans, and I don't think the politicians will care.

I was feeling safe because they hadn't said anything and it was two days away, but then they go and cancel at the last second.

A little surprised they waited till so close to show time to cancel. Would have been a little better for their fans, many of whom travel, if they had announced the cancellation back when Bruce cancelled his show, would have given folks almost 2 weeks notice to alter/cancel plans.

Fans had been speculating since the Bruce cancellation and as each day went by, more and more, everyone assumed the show would go on. While I understand the reason for the cancellation, I don't understand the timing. Should really have been announced at least a week ago.

I'm so conflicted by these cancellations. It's nice of bands to take a stance but as this drt4 bloke says I reeeeeeeally don't think conservative politicians are going to be swayed by rock bands cancelling. I think it really, really sucks for the fans (is North Carolina a place that regularly gets big gigs?) and I think the bands would send a much stronger message by playing the gigs and making a big statement through signs or visuals or proselytising. Like Bono does literally all the time.

The only thing that bugs me is there are other states with bathroom laws and the so-called religious freedom restoration acts that maybe didn't rush their discriminatory grossness into law as quickly as North Carolina did, but with the exception of Bryan Adams canceling a show in Mississippi and Bruce threatening to cancel in Michigan, they're largely ignored in this conversation. North Carolina is where the coverage is. Don't get me wrong, I think it's pretty cool. I also liked what Laura Jane Grace had to say about why she didnt cancel Against Me's show in NC.

Politicians don't listen to rock stars.

They do, however, listen to businesses...

And a couple of hours ago the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce came out in opposition of HB2 and called for its immediate repeal.

So it's working.

The statement they issued specifically noted 3.2 million in lost revenue since the law went into effect, along with a couple hundred lost jobs that were plegged, and the overwhelming amount of bad publicity.


I do think they probably should have canceled sooner, but the only people who were negatively effected were those who were flying in, or who bought tickets through illegeitamte means. Most hotels have 24 hour cancellation policies, and all tickets bought through Ticketmaster, PearlJam.com or StubHub are fully refundable.

Canceling two weeks ago wouldn't have allowed those who bought plane tickets to get their money back, as most plane tickets are non refundable... and I'd you did pay more for refundable tickets, then you can still get that refund.

That's good. Do they have power? Will it affect change?

A chamber of commerce is made up of business leaders and representatives from throughout a city and surrounding metro area. They have pull.
