Ringo Starr Nixes N. Carolina Show in Protest of Anti-LGBT Law

Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has canceled an upcoming show in North Carolina in protest of the state's anti-LGBT legislation. The show was set for June 18 at the Koka Booth Amphitheater in Cary. "I'm sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred," Starr said of the new law that prohibits local ordinances against gender identity-based discrimination. "Spread peace and love." Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams have also canceled show in the state as part of an unorganized boycott against the law.
