Whoa! This is becoming HUGE!!!
You know how famous bands and musicians come together during times of need and will put on a show to benefit those who need it?
Well it looks like the opposite is also true!
Ever since the documentary Blackfish came out, word has been spreading about SeaWorld's cruelty towards it's orca whales.
The park was due to have a huge Bands, Brews & BBQ festival with ten seriously famous musical acts.
But, ever since Willie Nelson dropped out, a chain reaction began and artists started dropping like secret Beyonce albums.
Heart and Trisha Yearwood followed suit, dropping out of the show as the dominoes kept falling.
Now, REO Speedwagon and Martina McBride have gracefully opted out, making them the 6th and 7th acts to drop out of their show.
In regards to the cancellation, REO Speedwagon wrote on their Facebook wall, saying:
"Due to concerns regarding our February 16th appearance at SeaWorld, we have chosen to cancel the performance."
While, Martina McBride also wrote to her fans on FB, saying:
"I've decided that given all the issues that have been aired recently, the time isn’t right for me to play at Seaworld. I have cancelled my scheduled performance at the Bands, [Brew] & BBQ event in March 2014."
Wow, do you think SeaWorld is freaking out by now?? Maybe it's just time to cancel.
We're so proud of all these artists for sticking by their principles and not playing a show at the park of amusements and cruelty.
