Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's Summer ’17 Tour of Australia and New Zealand kicked off yesterday evening in Perth.
At the performance, Bruce Springsteen made the following declaration in regards to the United States new President and the protests that occurred over the weekend:
"The E Street Band is glad to be here in Western Australia. But we're a long way from home, and our hearts and spirits are with the hundreds of thousands of women and men that marched yesterday in every city in America and in Melbourne who rallied against hate and division and in support of tolerance, inclusion, reproductive rights, civil rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, the environment, wage equality, gender equality, healthcare, and immigrant rights. We stand with you. We are the new American resistance."
