Ohhhhhh, barracuda indeed!!
Bands performing at Sea World's Bands, Brew & BBQ early next year are dropping like flies as Heart has announced they will also be canceling their scheduled performance!
The theme park has been the center of controversy lately due to the disturbing documentary Blackfish, which highlights their mistreatment of killer whales. But while some bands didn't exactly point the finger of blame at the eye-opening flick, Ann and Nancy Wilson say that's EXACTLY why they bowed out!
Heart's official Twitter account made the announcement and wrote:
Heart has chosen to decline their forthcoming performance at SeaWorld on 2/9/14 due to the controversial documentary film 'Black Fish'.
— Heart (@officialheart) December 8, 2013
As we mentioned, Heart isn't the first band to cancel their appearance, as their announcement comes just days after Willie Nelson and The Barenaked Ladies also dropped out!
Looks like Sea World might want to consider changing the name of their event to Brew & BBQ, because at this rate there will be no bands left!
