Seven Acts Have Canceled Performances at SeaWorld Orlando’s 2014 Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival

I had planned to write a story announcing the line-up at the 2014 edition of the Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival at SeaWorld Orlando. Problem is, seven of those acts have canceled their scheduled performances.

BandsBrewBBQ-250x350Barenaked Ladies were the first to back out amid online pressure triggered by the documentary “Blackfish,” which criticized the water park’s treatment of whales.

Since then, Willie Nelson, Cheap Trick, Heart, and Trisha Yearwood have canceled. This weekend, REO Speedwagon and Martina McBride joined the list.

As of right now, the website just states, “This year’s awesome line-up features 6 full weekends of top artists in classic rock and country music including a side stage showcasing local bands.’ It is scheduled to run from February 1 to March 9, 2014, on weekends.

What do you think of these artists canceling because of the “Blackfish” documentary?
