Justin Moore Confirmed for SeaWorld Performance
Justin Moore has been confirmed to perform at SeaWorld as part of the Bands, Brew and BBQ concert series.
Moore is scheduled to play on Sunday (Feb. 23), despite the controversy that has recently dogged SeaWorld surrounding the documentary 'Blackfish,' which raises questions about the ethics and safety of keeping whales in captivity. SeaWorld has consistently denied the allegations in the film.
The 29-year-old, whose most recent album is 'Off the Beaten Path,' was one of the acts originally announced for the concert series before the controversy began. His performance was confirmed when SeaWorld posted this week's schedule on Monday (Feb. 17). The Commodores are on the schedule for Saturday (Feb. 22).
The park has been posting upcoming acts on a week-by-week basis since facing a string of cancellations, including Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and Trace Adkins. Many of those artists were specifically targeted by online petitions asking them to reconsider their performances.
Moore's upcoming appearance is the subject of a petition at Change.org that currently has more than 27,000 signatures.The 'Point at You' singer has not commented publicly on the matter.
