Boycott of Arizona not affecting Pascua Yaqui casino venue

Some musical acts have canceled concerts in Arizona over SB1070, the state's controversial anti-immigration law, but the boycott doesn't appear to be affecting business for the Pascua Yaqui Tribe.

The Goo Goo Dolls performed as scheduled at Ava Amphitheater, located at Casino Del Sol in Tucson. "We've had some inquiries from the artists regarding [SB1070], but when they learn that we're an Indian tribe on sovereign land then they understand that we're not necessarily a part of that political process," CEO Wendell Long told KOLD-TV.

The same can't be said for another venue in Tucson, which said it lost business as a result of the new law.
