Anyone who has seen the documentary, “Blackfish,” knows that SeaWorld has no heart. We can take that statement to another level now that the band, Heart, has canceled their performance at the park’s February concert event, Band, Brew & BBQ. Heart is the third musical act to cancel, following Willie Nelson and The Barenaked Ladies, and like the other two bands, credit impassioned petitions and ‘Blackfish’ as the impetus.

Heart guitarist, Nancy Wilson, posted on Twitter, “The Sea World show was planned long ago as an Orlando show. Had we known, we’d have said no then. We said no today. Love you all.” Her following tweets have been expressing her love for orcas and her gratitude to everyone who helps animals.

A petition encouraging the band’s cancellation of the SeaWorld show was created in February and gained nearly 2,000 signatures before the band’s announcement. Petitions are circulating for some of the remaining acts slated to appear at SeaWorld’s festival, including Cheap Trick and “American Idol,” Scotty McCreery. Who will be the next musical act to take a stand against SeaWorld?
