Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band canceled their North Carolina concert because of the state's new law blocking anti-discrimination rules for the LGBT community, said guitarist Steven Van Zandt, calling it the kind of legislation that's like an "evil virus" spreading around the U.S.Springsteen and the band considered, but ultimately rejected, other options, said Van Zandt, who posthumously inducted songwriter Bert Berns into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Friday.In North Carolina, some religious leaders and others have defended the law, saying it protects women and children from men who use the law as a pretense to enter the wrong restroom.Van Zandt said such legislation must be challenged.
