Band number six is out. REO Speedwagon has just cancelled their performance for the upcoming Bands, Brew BBQ festival at SeaWorld Orlando. Though no specific mention of the Blackfish documentary was made, it stands to reason that this is the cause of the cancellation, just like the previous five bands. The group posted on their Facebook page, "Due to concerns regarding our February 16th appearance at SeaWorld, we have chosen to cancel the performance."

Other performers that have cancelled in recent weeks include Barenaked Ladies, Willie Nelson, Heart, Cheap Trick and Trisha Yearwood.
