With all the buzz surrounding the five musical acts to cancel SeaWorld’s Bands, Brews & BBQ festival thus far, it seems that REO Speedwagon just couldn’t fight that feeling anymore that participating would be wrong: they’ve cancelled their appearance at the marine park’s music show.

The band posted on their Facebook page, “Due to concerns regarding our February 16th appearance at SeaWorld, we have chosen to cancel the performance.” No mention of the influential documentary, “Blackfish,” but clearly all the petitions and social media heat are proving effective. Country singer, Trisha Yearwood, said she hadn’t watched “Blackfish” (yet?), but the reaction of her fans was enough to make her quit SeaWorld’s show, as well. The other performers that have backed out are Barenaked Ladies, Willie Nelson, Heart, and Cheap Trick.

Even though REO Speedwagon haven’t elaborated on the reasons for their cancellation, fans are sure to keep on loving them for putting their fans and animals before financial gain.
