    (CNN) -- Add REO Speedwagon to the list of musical acts canceling SeaWorld shows because of the documentary "Blackfish."
    "Due to concerns regarding our February 16 appearance at SeaWorld, we have chosen to cancel the performance," the rock band said on its Facebook page on Friday.
    A promoter could put together a great concert series with the acts who have canceled SeaWorld shows in the past several weeks, includingTrisha Yearwood, Willie Nelson, Cheap Trick, Heart and Barenaked Ladies.
    The acts bailed on the Orlando theme park's "Bands, BBQ and Brew" concert series amid pressure from fans who started online petitions, tweeted and posted on Facebook pages demanding they not play SeaWorld.

    Don't underestimate the people my age (in their 40s) who are creepily nostalgic for bad '80s music. :facepalm:

    Usually don't pull back the wizard's curtain but I love your posts and I'm glad you're back:

    I'm being facetious, I can't stand those cliches and their omnipresence. Satirical hyperbole is mah faaaavorite.

    How many people have ever gone to a theme park specifically to see ANYBODY play music?

    It's like saying you are buying a hamburger for the pickles. These poor fools get all fired up over some shity documentary about about freeing a Willie that wasn't Micheal Jackson and loose thier bread. Meanwhile the vegan higher "evolved" cunt who made the movie is eating in the finest restaurants discussing her next gig with like minded morons.
