Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato Go Springsteen On North Carolina, Cancel Shows In Charlotte And Raleigh

GLAAD has their statement:

After much thought and deliberation, Nick and I have decided to cancel our shows in Raleigh and Charlotte. One of our goals for the Honda Civic Tour: Future Now has always been to create an atmosphere where every single attendee feels equal, included, and accepted for who they are. North Carolina’s discriminatory HB2 law is extremely disappointing, and it takes away some of the LGBT community’s most basic rights and protections. But we will not allow this to stop us from continuing to make progress for equality and acceptance. We know the cancelation of these shows is disappointing to our fans, but we trust that you will stand united with us against this hateful law. #RepealHB2.

    • Princess Lardass

      LOL! I saw this and immediately thought: “Please Clap.”

  • Circ09

    Certainly not 80s has-beens!

    • 80s has-beens? I’m not following. They were both born in 1992.

      • Circ09

        The Gov last week was unimpressed by the acts cancelling -basically calling them all old fart has-beens. Jonas & Lovato appeal to the teen set.

        • KT

          Already the Governor’s campaign’s Twitter account has blasted Lovato and Jonas, calling them ill informed. Then they blast Jonas for performing in Russia and Malaysia – so they are basically putting NC in the same category as those other anti-gay places lol. What morons.

          • Dorothy Rothchild

            So many people/groups keep saying that which is mind boggling. If you’re comparing yourself to Russia and Malaysia you’re not really winning the argument.

        • Todd20036

          The Boss? A Has-been? Really?

          • Reality.Bites

            It was the Mississippi governor who said that, not NC. In reference to Boston and Brian Adams.

          • Todd20036

            Neither of them are has-beens either, IMHO

  • Dazzer

    Nick ought to offer to auction off his purity ring and give the proceeds to fighting the anti-LGBT measures.

    That would put the haters in a quandry.

  • ryan charisma

    fine. I’ll date Nick Jonas, but only as a favor.

    • elvigy

      When you need a night off, just let me know. I’m always there with a helping hand! Or…well, whatever is needed.

  • they aren’t artists i know well, but i thank them anyway. it’s so lovely to see young people get active like this. /combs thinning grey hair, sips Metamucil.

    but really, it is. it gives me hope and all that other stuff.

  • JT

    Come over here and sit by me, Nick. In your briefs or nothing at all.

        You people are sluts.

        And yes, it does take one to know one….

        • Gene

          lol…embrace the inner slut…and have the slut inside you, I say. 🙂

          In any case, thanks to them both. she is beautiful and can sing, he has some talent, and damn…that is a beautiful young man.. Thanks to them both for doing the right thing.

    • dr morbius

      Wow, doing something a huge chunk of your audience demands. Very… brave?

      • JT

        What planet are you from?

          Bitterwhiner 13

          its in the “trollingforattention” sector

      • Todd20036

        Giving up a huge chunk of revenue and publicity and disappointing fans all for a cause that directly affects only a small minority of people.

        Yup. Brave. Deal.

  • LovesIrony

    Thank you Demi and Nick.

  • D. J.

    What will NC do if Pat Robertson up and finally croaks? I guess they’ll be down to watching infomercials….

    • Snarkaholic

      The network will keep presenting old reruns as “the new episode of The Pat Robertson Show” (most of his followers are so addled they won’t know the difference).

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        They have an animatronic version of him they have been using on alternate Mondays for years.

  • bkmn

    McCrory obviously likes pain.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      McCrory is beyond Betty Page. He needs Tura Satana.

      • Cuberly

        Whoo Hoo! TURA!

  • Todd

    Kisses to both allies ….
    Call me Nick ……… I’ll do more than that for you !

  • Ninja0980

    Notice to the bigots who want to compare this to the cake makers.
    There is no law stating these folks have to perform in certain states or venues, unlike CO law which states you don’t have the right to decide who does and doesn’t get a product based on who they are.

    • Bob Conti

      It’s a distinction that’s far too difficult for them to fathom.

      • Silver Badger

        Please remember, if they had any real brains, they wouldn’t be bigots. As it is, the haters are no better than they should be.

    • Ander

      Exactly. That argument isn’t analogous at all. Those artists who are not performing in North Carolina are simply not “open for business” in that state for ANYONE, as oppose to providing a service for one segment of the population versus another, as some infamous bakers/florists have attempted to do. The only way performers not holding concerts in North Carolina would be analogous to those shopkeepers, would be if the shopkeepers shut down their businesses and also refused to serve ANYONE.

  • rickhfx

    Thank You.

  • Tina CRACKA Vane

    wonder what beyonce has stated … probably not a damn thing #FakeAssBitch

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    Pfffft! Concerts are so last decade. The new entertainment is Trump rallies. North Carolina should be good to go with those.

    [Photo is actually from a recent event in Georgia]

  • Lazycrockett

    In not surprising news Dolly is still going to tour in NC, “A lot of people are canceling shows and all that. I have no plans to cancel the show. I think I serve better from the stage. I think everybody should be treated great and with respect and everybody knows that about me. I can address that from the stage.”

    • Todd20036

      I expected more from her

      • Chucktech

        It’s the least I would expect from any performing artist who isn’t in the christianist tank.

      • Silver Badger

        Don’t give up. She WILL be more effective from the stage.

        • Todd20036

          I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt for now. Lets see what she does next

  • Todd20036

    And another mic drops.

  • SoCalGal20

    To put this in a little bit of perspective, Demi and Nick tweeted this out to their followers. Demi Lovato has 37.5 MILLION twitter followers and Nick Jonas has 10.5 million. This doesn’t even take into account their other social media. They both already have thousands of likes and retweets on their twitter posts.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Social media is so cool. In the right hands.

    • Todd20036

      What is this “social media” of which you speak?
      In MY day, you want to reach people, you put an ad in the news paper, which was made of paper by gum!
      And why is that cloud mocking me???

  • WIGuy

    I love me some Nick Jonas!!

  • Bj Lincoln

    Good. Read a piece that had calculated the cost so far to Charlotte and it is in the 20 millions. People are out of jobs for the summer and beyond. It may affect them for years to come even if they repeal the law today. It’s not just the big concerts either. Tons of conventions have cancle too. 🙂

    • Tor

      Unfortunately, it appears that the rest of the state does not care about Charlotte. The law was written to punish Charlotte in the first place.

  • JustSayin’

    Crap now i have to support these two no talent tenny boppers… Ugh!

  • Trevor Brown

    That’s fine thanks Nick. But please: still take your shirt off.

    • Silver Badger

      At least your shirt, Nick.

  • fuzzybits

    This cool. Don’t make the kids mad.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Thank you! And spread the word!

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    Good on them. Also notice the Honda Civic mentioned in the title so I’d say the car company was OK with their decision.

  • Richard B

    BRAVO to Nick and Dem!
    Their support keeps the boycott in the national spotlight and on North Carolina’s republican antigay bigoted governor/legislature.
    Even faced with a crippling boycott, the republicans that past HR 2 are still defiant and intransient.
    North Carolina republicans have gerrymandered their districts to ensure a permanent republican majority to control their legislature.
    To repeal HR 2, significant work needs to be done to overwhelm the republican menace’s unfair structural advantages and elect Democrats in North Carolina elections this fall.

  • NeverEclipsed

    Demi is rocking some pretty flawless and moisturized shoulders.. Just saying. I love those two. I might try to see them when they come to my area.

  • Bob Peacock

    Bravo, Nick and Demi for taking a stand. We love you both and look forward to seeing your show in Vancouver, B.C. Canada.
