Barenaked Ladies Tyler Stewart

Canadian rockers Barenaked Ladies' upcoming show at Orlando, Florida's SeaWorld has been scrapped following drummer Tyler Stewart's Twitter reveal that he and his bandmates were looking at "options" after watching a hard-hitting new documentary exposing the park staff's treatment of killer whales.

Stewart told fans that the group's Bands, Brews & Bbq date at SeaWorld, scheduled for 15 February (14), was up in the air after fans launched a petition urging the musicians to watch Blackfish - a behind-the-scenes documentary about life at the park - and they agreed to check it out.

Stewart wrote, "Like you, we've seen the movie and were affected. We're currently looking at options on how to proceed."

Animal House Hits Broadway, With Help From Barenaked Ladies


John Belushi Barenaked Ladies Dan Aykroyd

John Belushi's cult comedy 'Animal House' is coming to Broadway. The New York Post reported yesterday (March 5, 2012), on the 30th anniversary of his tragic death. Universal Pictures have announced that the 1978 frat-party comedy has been taken up by the playwright Michael Mitnick and director and choreographer Casey Nicholaw.

The Canadian alternative rock band Barenaked Ladies have been signed up to write the score for the musical, which will revisit the characters of John Blutarsky and Chip Diller and their Delta Tau Chi fraternity pals. One of the original producers of the film (and founder of the National Lampoon magazine), Matty Simmons, is on board as executive producer of the project. James Nederlander, of the Nederlander Organization will serve as a producer on the show and hope to make it as successful as his previous ventures, such as Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark and Priscilla Queen of the Desert. The casting for the show has, so far been kept under wraps, so it is unclear who will take on Belushi's popular role as Blutarsky.
