Jackson Browne to Perform in North Carolina

Share This:

Jackson Browne FB Profile PicTwo previously postponed Jackson Browne concerts in North Carolina have been rescheduled for May 28 and June 1.

The shows in Asheville, NC and Wilmington, NC were originally scheduled for January 8 and 22 respectively, but both shows were postponed due to illness and weather, respectively.

Browne will be donating the entire net proceeds of both North Carolina shows to support local and national LGBT groups, including Equality NC and Human Rights Campaign.

Says Browne: “There are a lot of fine people in North Carolina, and some of them are transgender. I am coming to North Carolina to play for anyone and everyone, and the proceeds from my two concerts will be directed to groups working to advance equality under the law for transgender people.”

In March, North Carolina became for the first state to prohibit people from using a public restroom if it did not match the sex on their birth certificate. Several artists subsequently canceled their performances in North Carolina. Today (May 9), the state sued the U.S. Department of Justice after state officials were informed last week that were in violation of civil rights.

Browne is teaming up with James Taylor for concerts at two of America’s most beloved ballparks: June 30th at Chicago’s Wrigley Field and August 3rd at Boston’s Fenway Park.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has sold more than 18 million albums in the U.S. since he first hit the music scene, writing classic tunes like “Take It Easy,” “The Pretender,” “Running on Empty,” “Doctor My Eyes,” and “Somebody’s Baby.”

Here he is performing “Running on Empty” earlier this year during his solo acoustic tour.  (Nice seats…)
