Lady Gaga, Creed, Godsmack, Disturbed, Rise Against, Slightly Stoopid, Rob Zombie, Megadeth, Black Label Society with Zakk Wylde, Anthrax, Filter, Hellyeah and Flogging Molly are all bypassing BP fuel for other options, according to a statement.
Early estimates show about 100 buses, vehicles and trucks belonging to committed musicians are involved in the boycott.
Kevin Lyman, tour director for the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival which is another tour boycotting BP fuel, said in the statement, "We have so many friends that are now affected by this spill that unless BP spends whatever is needed their livelihoods are lost forever....we are encouraging everyone we deal with to find alternative ways to get down the road this summer."
