Blue Man Group cancels upcoming performance in NC over House Bill 2
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Blue Man Group has canceled their upcoming performance in North Carolina, joining a growing list of entertainers and businesses protesting the state’s controversial House Bill 2 law.
The performance art company was scheduled to perform in Charlotte from June 17th through the 19th.
The group has released a statement apologizing to their fans in the Tar Heel state.
“We regret any disappointment this may cause our fans, but look forward to performing for you in the future,” they said, in part, in a prepared statement.
The House Bill 2 law put in place a statewide policy that bans individuals from using public bathrooms that do not correspond to their biological sex.
It also stops cities in the state from passing anti-discrimination ordinances to protect gay and transgender people.
Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Ani DiFranco, Pearl Jam and Boston are among other performers who have recently cancelled performances in North Carolina over House Bill 2.
