The Backstreet Boys join popular hard rock band KORN to boycott the purchase of BP oil. Currently on a 35+ North American tour in support of their new album, THIS IS US, BSB promises to embark on a BP free tour.
"I'm devastated by what I've seen first hand and on the news" says Nick Carter. "I've always been a marine activist and seeing pictures of oil-covered animals breaks my heart."
"We just played Biloxi last week and I have to tell you people are really worried down there. This boycott is about making a statement, letting people know how we feel and to stand for something," states Brian Littrell.
Both Backstreet Boys and KORN urge other touring musicians to join their boycott.
