North Carolina Can't Buy Ringo Starr's Love
Like Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr says he won't perform in North Carolina because of the state's House Bill 2.By Katie Link | April 13, 2016
Tickets to see Ringo Starr in concert this summer in North Carolina are officially worthless.
The former Beatles drummer announced Wednesday that his June show is canceled as he protests the passing of the state's so-called "bathroom bill" that some say discriminates against transgender people.
He said in a statement: "I’m sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred. Spread peace and love."
