Now that Bruce Springsteen has cancelled his gig at Greensboro Stadium, who will be next? Ringo Starr just 86’d his show in NC.
Scheduled soon for Greensboro: shows by Justin Bieber, Dolly Parton, Babyface, Lauryn Hill and Gary Clark Jr., R. Kelly and Weird Al.
Sesame Street Live comes in on May 26th. “Sesame Street” is all about equality. Will they play their date in Greensboro?
At the Booth Amphitheater in Cary, NC, they’ve got Chis Stapleton coming up. Willie Nelson on the docket, not to mention Styx with Don Felder of the Eagles, and Kansas.
Other recording artists with upcoming shows in North Carolina include Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Pearl Jam and Duran Duran.
The question is, will these other acts go the way of Jimmy Buffett, who decided to go on with his show after making a statement against the anti-LGBT law? Or will they go with Bruce and Ringo?
I would think of all of those names, Justin Bieber would have the most impact. If he cancels, it’s a huge statement. If he continues, well, that just solidifies what people already think of him. The ball is in his court.
