8th act cancels concert at SeaWorld

Posted: Updated:

Performers who got caught up in the documentary "Blackfish" are now releasing their ties with SeaWorld.

A total of 8 acts pulled out of an upcoming concert series at the Orlando based theme park.

Rock band, 38 Special and Martina McBride announced they too will not show up for the "Bands, Brew and BBQ" concert series in March.

It's all thanks to the movie, "Blackfish" which took a critical look at SeaWorld and the treatment of animals in captivity.

A park spokesperson said, "While we're disappointed, a small group of misinformed individuals was able to deny fans what would have been great concerts at SeaWorld, we respect the band's decisions."

SeaWorld says they are booking new acts for the concert series.
