Following in the footsteps of seven other musical groups scheduled to perform at SeaWorld Orlando, .38 Special has announced their decision to back out as well. The group posted this message on their Facebook page: "Due to concerns raised by the CNN documentary Blackfish, .38 Special will be canceling its scheduled March 9th concert at SeaWorld. We appreciate the outpouring of support and especially apologize to our Orlando fans. We will try and schedule another performance in your area in the near future."

Other bands who have recently cancelled are Barenaked Ladies, Willie Nelson, Heart, Cheap Trick, Trisha Yearwood, REO Speedwagon and Martina McBride.
