Dierks Bentley’s upcoming San Diego gig an emotional homecoming

Country start Dierks Bentley is preparing to relive his childhood memories of family vacations to the La Jolla Sea Lodge, but this year’s trip will have a unique twist. The singer is set to perform this Sunday night at the Sleep Train Amphitheater, in his first tour headlining multiple acts, on what would have been his father’s 91st birthday.

The singer’s affection for San Diego will combine with the presence of his wife and three children, as well as touching memories of his father, to create what may be one of the most emotionally charged performances of Bentley’s career.

Bentley wrote his No. 1 album, “Riser,” based on his thoughts and feelings after his father’s death in 2012 and the birth of his youngest son, Knox. The singer is eager to perform “I Hold On,” the platinum-selling single off “Riser,” about the trip he and his father made to Nashville in a 1994 Chevy when he was still an aspiring singer, but he anticipates it being difficult to get through.

Joining Bentley for the show will be three opening acts that Bentley says were very carefully chosen. Kip Moore, Maddie & Tae, and Canaan Smith will take the stage before Bentley on Sunday night. Tickets range from $20 to $33 and can be purchased online in advance.

SeaWorld makes big expansion plans for orca habitat

The California Coastal Commission is gearing up to discuss SeaWorld‘s “Blue World” project in the fall, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune on July 26.

The park’s plan proposes a $100 million dollar renovation to the current habitat housing its orcas that would expand it to 350 feet long, provide depths up to 50 feet, and include a fast-water current for the whales to swim against. In addition to the expansion, SeaWorld has pledged $10 million for research on orcas in the wild.

As it is now, the park has been accredited by two major zoological associations and is inspected at least once a year by federal agencies. SeaWorld officials say the “Blue World” project would be a fantastic improvement to the whales’ current habitat, as it would more accurately address their physical, mental, and behavioral needs. The new habitat would provide park-goers with an excellent view of the orcas without compromising the animals’ happiness.

SeaWorld’s San Diego park is located a short ten minute drive from South Mission Beach, and the route is serviced by a bus that picks up and drops off every fifteen minutes.
