Another small but not insignificant blow for SeaWorld

In November the band ‘Barenaked Ladies’ pulled out of SeaWorld’s annual Bands Brew & BBQ music festival scheduled to launch at SeaWorld Orlando in February of 2014.
The Blackfish movie was revealed as the root of their decision not to play in this popular annual event.

Today, the Orlando sentinel announced that country singer Willie Nelson was pulling out of the same event due to scheduling conflicts.
It would be wrong to tie Nelson’s cancellation to Blackfish, but SeaWorld fans might be just wondering if this is the start of an ongoing trend.

Over the decades, music has proven to be a potent political weapon and the power of millions of very influential young spenders can change the course of major political paths.
Bob Dylan knew only too well the power he wielded over politicians.

As always, we hope that SeaWorld come out of this difficult time, both stronger and better, but for now, it seems clear that Blackfish simply won’t go away.
