Pearl Jam cancels concert over anti-LGBT law

Los Angeles, April 20 (IANS) American rock band Pearl Jam have cancelled a concert in North Carolina in protest against the state’s new law on LGBT rights.

The law requires people to use public toilets that correspond to the sex listed on their birth certificates. It drew flak from campaigners and musicians alike.

The band was set to play PNC Arena in Raleigh on Wednesday as part of their North American tour.

In a statement, Pearl Jam said they “must take a stand against prejudice”, the BBC reported.

The law “is a despicable piece of legislation that encourages discrimination against an entire group of American citizens,” the statement on the band’s website said.

“The practical implications are expansive and its negative impact upon basic human rights is profound.”

On Monday, another US band, Boston, also cancelled three shows scheduled for late April in North Carolina.

Other acts, including Bruce Springsteen and Ringo Starr, have also scrapped their shows in protest.

I’ve come to love the suit: Robert Downey Jr.

Los Angeles, April 20 (IANS) Robert Downey Jr. entered the realm of superheroes on the silver screen as Iron Man and the actor says he never gets tired of wearing the suit as he has “come to love it”.

Downey Jr. was appreciated as the American superhero in the “Iron Man” trilogy. The trilogy might be over, but Iron Man still lives on the big screen through “The Avengers” series.

Downey Jr. will be making his comeback as the superhero with the release of “Captain America: Civil War”. The film also features Chris Evans as Captain America.

When asked about wearing the suit again, he said that he has nothing to complain about and absolutely loves the suit.

“Well, what I realised is that there is safety, fun and relief in numbers. For instance I am sure Chris could tell you that he’s in every shot of movie practically, now I am on the poster, but still whenever you put the suit on and they have improved it over time,” Downey Jr. said in a statement.

“I thought rather than do that typical thing that most fortunate people complaining about their circumstances, I have come to love the suit,” he added.

Downey Jr. revealed his inclination towards the suit in the video of the making of the Disney and Marvel film.

He also shared that he often sees things from a child’s eye view given the immense popularity of the superheroes amongst the younger audience.

He said: “I do (look at thing from child’s view) also now there are kids visiting the sets for a bunch of reasons and back on the second ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. We did before this, my son Axen was visiting the sets and he was going bananas from the hawk eye stuff and he is kind of over it now because he knows dad’s deeply invested in it so it’s a little bit less luminous to him now.”

The actor also asked fans of the superhero film to brace up as he said “expect the unexpected” from “Captain America: Civil War”. The superhero team-up movie is scheduled to release in US and India on May 6.
