Busch Gardens, SeaWorld hosting Joan Jett, Blondie, Willie Nelson and more in 2011
Busch Gardens has announced performers for its annual Bands, Brews and BBQ and Viva La Musica concert series in Tampa and at SeaWorld in Orlando. Among the artists on the bill: Blondie, Willie Nelson, Huey Lewis and the News, REO Speedwagon, Elvis Crespo, Josh Turner and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, above.
The classic rock-oriented Bands, Brews and BBQ series takes place Saturdays at SeaWorld starting in February, and Sundays at Busch Gardens, beginning in February. Viva La Musica is Saturdays at SeaWorld and Sundays at Busch Gardens, beginning in March.
