Gregg Allman Stands With LGBT Community But Won't Cancel North Carolina Concert

While Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams have canceled concerts in North Carolina over the state's controversial bathroom law, Gregg Allman has announced he will perform in the state as planned on Wednesday.

Allman isn't, however, coming out in support of the HB2 law, which many are blasting as anti-LGBT (the state law makes it illegal for cities to pass laws ensuring transgender people can use the bathroom of their choosing).

In a strongly worded Facebook statement, he said that while the "discriminating" law is "infuriating," he knows that "North Carolina is a state full of good folks and loyal fans, many of whom are angry about and feel misrepresented by this action."

Allman's decision follows a similar one from Cyndi Lauper, a longtime LGBT activist who told TMZ she will play North Carolina this summer despite the law.
