    I hope one of those "Special Artist to be named" turns out to be Pentatonix again. They always pack the concert yard and are a treat to watch.

    Ding dang, they got a few shows I would really like to see. If only that drive didn't suck so much.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Pentatonix is one of the unnamed artists. They were one of the most popular acts the past 2 years.

    Official statement regarding Kenny Rogers:

    “Kenny Rogers has canceled his appearance at the Busch Gardens Food & Wine festival on Saturday, March 5 due to illness. We wish him a speedy recovery and we are working to fill the open date and will announce once a special guest has been secured.”

    The only band out of this entire line up i'd care to see is Goo Goo Dolls. But I don't have a BGT pass yet (may not until Mako) so I may not even go.

    Well Kenny Rogers canceled a few weeks ago. Apparently he has cancelled the rest of his tour/appearances for the time being. So it's just this one.

    That's stupid.

    Well they are also a business and this makes said business money. Where does that money go? To reinvestment, profits, animal welfare, research, shareholders, etc.

    Well, it ain't like the Animal Kingdom down the road is just serving falafels and hummus, either. You can like animals...and food.

    The BG Food & Wine Festival is great! We went last year and this year and both visits were fantastic. The food is great and passholders even get a discount! Better value than EPCOT and much more enjoyable overall.

    BTW- Collective Soul will be playing tomorrow (March 12th) in place of the Goo Goo Dolls. Pretty good get for a last minute substitution.
