Rockers Reo Speedwagon have become the latest act to scrap a show at SeaWorld in Florida over the theme park's killer whale treatment scandal. New movie Blackfish exposed what goes on behind the scenes at the tourist attraction, and the band has raised some concerns over being part of the show, which had been scheduled for next year (14). A message on the group's Facebook.com page reads, "Due to concerns regarding our February 16 appearance at SeaWorld, we have chosen to cancel the performance." REO Speedwagon join celebrities including Trisha Yearwood, Barenaked Ladies and Willie Nelson, who have all cancelled performances which were due to be part of the park's Bands, BBQ and Brew concert series.
