Barenaked Ladies’ will not be performing at SeaWorld

by Rachel Baker on December 3, 2013

Apparently, the band Barenaked Ladies was supposed to play at SeaWorld in the early months of next year. After viewing the documentary Blackfish they have decided not to perform at the sea creature themed park in Florida.

Barenaked Ladies have nixed their plans to play at SeaWorld after viewing CNN’s “Blackfish” documentary.

“This is a complicated issue, and we don’t claim to understand all of it, but we don’t feel comfortable proceeding with the gig at this time,” the band said on a Facebook post late Wednesday night.

“The Seaworld folks have been gracious, and extended us invitations to the park to learn more about what they do, and how they do it.”

A park spokesman told CNN that the show has been taken off the theme park’s concert schedule.
