NORTH CAROLINA — Maroon 5 has announced that all upcoming shows in North Carolina have been pulled. According to The Huffington Post, Maroon 5 made the announcement amid further ugly protests and demonstrations against North Carolina ‘s crackdown on transgender people and their use of correct bathrooms.
We have announced that we will be canceling our upcoming shows in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina because of the recent passage of the HB2 legislation. This was a difficult decision for us to make as a band. We don’t want to penalize our fans in North Carolina by not performing for them, but in the end it comes down to what we feel is morally right AS WE FEEL EVERYONE SHOULD BE TREATED EQUALLY.
