EDISON - New Jersey’s most famous rocker has canceled one of his concerts in a show of support for the LGBT community.
Bruce Springsteen canceled a show in Greensboro, North Carolina, that was set for Sunday. He is opposing a law passed in the state last month that blocks cities from letting transgender people use bathrooms for the gender in which they identify.
"Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry, which is happening as I write, is one of them,” Springsteen said in a statement.
The statement continued, "It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards."
Guitarist Steven Van Zandt called the law the kind of legislation that's like an "evil virus" spreading around the U.S.
People who bought tickets to the show will get refunds.
Supporters of the law say that it helps to uphold individual rights of North Carolina citizens.
