Sanz Gets Dixie Treatment

How does one say "Dixie-Chicked" in Spanish?

Latin superstar Alejandro Sanz was blocked from playing a concert in Caracas, Venezuela, because he criticized President Hugo Chavez three years ago, education minister Luis Acuna said.

Sanz was scheduled to perform November 1st at the Poliedro – a state controlled stadium – but the show has been postponed to February 14th (promoter Evenpro says it is searching for a venue for the already sold-out show).

The education minister gave no reason why the government initially agreed to the concert at the Poliedro, which was expected to draw up to 15,000.
