Legendary rock musicians BRYAN ADAMS and RINGO STARR (THE BEATLES) have also cancelled recent shows in NORTH CAROLINA in protest of HB2 as the law does not allow transgendered to use bathrooms regarding the gender they identity with, along with other laws discriminating against the LGBTQ community.

Ani Cancels Appearance in North Carolina:
"Today I was supposed to announce my July 4th participation in the Festival for the Eno in Durham, North Carolina. Instead, I must announce that I am cancelling my trip and will not be appearing at this wonderful event. As we all have heard, the North Carolina legislature recently passed House Bill 2, also known as the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, which specifically bans individuals from using bathrooms and locker rooms that do not match the gender listed on their birth certificates. In addition, the bill also prevents local governments from enacting non-discrimination ordinances that might supersede this State action. All of this was done as a direct attack on the rights of the LGBT community.
To those who live in North Carolina, and do not have the tool of staying away to voice your dissent, please take a moment to look at the Festival for the Eno River. It is an annual event hosted by the hardworking folks at the Eno River Association focused on protecting and sustaining the Eno River and its watershed for future generations.
And don’t forget to vote!"
