Due to the US National Hurricane Center’s forecast that hurricane-level storms may occur in New England on Sunday, local officials, promoters, Kenny Chesney and his team have decided for safety reasons to push Chesney’s Sunday concert at Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium to this Friday.

“Our first and foremost priority is the fans’ safety,” said promoter Louis Messina of TMG/AEG Live in a statement, “so we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the show.”

“I want the last weekend of the ‘Goin’ Coastal’ Tour to be a great experience for everybody. But I also want it to be the safest experience for everyone,” said Chesney. “I’ve always said Foxboro is a highlight of our tour, because the fans are ready for a great night of music and fun no matter what night it is!”

All tickets for Sunday’s show will be honored on the new date, and the line-up (of Chesney, Zac Brown Band and Billy Currington) and set-times will remain the same. There will be no show on Sunday, August 28. For fans who are not able to make Friday’s show, refunds will be offered at point of purchase.
