Bully projected abortion information at Nashville Pride Fest set, expand 2022 tour

Since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday, artists have been speaking out both online and on stage at their shows. Nashville's Bully played their hometown's Pride Festival on Saturday, and used the stage's video projection screen for a special message: "OUR BAND NAME COULD BE HERE BUT INSTEAD HERE ARE SOME CRUCIAL RESOURCES - IF YOU KNOW ANYBODY WHO NEEDS HELP SEEKING AN ABORTION CALL 1-800-230-7526 OR VISIT ABORTIONFINDER.ORG."

“It feels good to be in a safe space after yesterday,” Bully's Alicia Bognanno said. “We got to look out for each other because we're all we got. The Supreme Court sure as hell isn't.” The bands set included originals as well as covers of McLusky's "Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues," and Prince/Sinead O'Connor song "Nothing Compares 2 U," which bookended their performance. Check out Bully's Nashville Pride setlist below.

Bully will be on tour later this summer, including dates with fellow Nashville resident Jason Isbell. That tour hits NYC on September 2 at The Rooftop at Pier 17. The day before, Bully will play a headline show at Jersey City's White Eagle Hall on September 1 with Hello Mary opening. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, July 1 at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

Tennessee is one of the states abortion will soon be all but outlawed. A law banning abortions in the state after six weeks, when most people don't know they're pregnant, is set to take effect 30 days from the Supreme Court's ruling, and state Attorney General Herbert Slatery has asked a federal appeals court to be allowed to enforce that law even sooner, Tennessean.com reports. "The criminal prosecution of doctors and health care providers is imminent," in the state, constitutional attorney David Raybin told News Channel 5 Nashville.
