    The lead singer, Brad Delp, killed himself 9 years ago. Not sure who is singing these days? Axl?

    Boston cancels North Carolina concerts because of LGBT law
    by Aaron Smith April 18, 2016: 2:43 PM ET

    Boston founder Tom Scholz announced with "deep regret" the cancellation of three shows scheduled for North Carolina next month, noting that "human rights are more important."

    On his web site, Scholz said that he is canceling shows slated for Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh on May 4, 5 and 6, "in order to raise awareness, and protest in the strongest terms, the recent passage of HB2, the so-called 'North Carolina bathroom law.'"

    HB2, which passed in March, prevents cities from creating non-discrimination policies based on gender identity and mandates that students in state schools use the bathroom that corresponds with the gender on their birth certificate.

    "HB2 has the appearance of an oppressive discriminatory law against a small minority," said Scholz.

    While expressing his "sincere apologies" to fans who already bought tickets, he said "it is likely that some members of our audience and/or their loved ones are affected on a daily basis by this ugly expression of intolerance."

    Exercising their freedom to deny service to others based on their beliefs to protest the right of others who to want to deny service based on their beliefs isn't hypocritical at all.

    Yawn. Saw them over 20 years ago in Las Vegas. They weren't bad then. But now in 2016, with the original lead singer dead?

    They haven't been relevant since the last time the Miami Dolphins were in a Superbowl. Pass.

    i think they will get it over turned.


    that sholtz guy invented his own sound.
    and hes obsessed with perfection and holds up albums years after they done.
    band members families hated him cause they needed the money

    I've read that too. Years ago I also read that some of his former friends and associates claim that he is regularly almost unable to function due to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

    how do you enforce such a law even?

    Rachel Maddow looks just like Mark Teixeira
    either one could use either shitter as the other one
    who the fuck is stopping them and asking for ID?

    If some dude is standing at the entrance to the can at Walmart stopping people for id then i'm shitting in the shoe department
