Hurricane Irene Bumps Kenny Chesney’s Sunday, August 28 Show at Gillette Stadium to Friday, August 26

First a tornado, then an earthquake — what's next, a hurricane?

Yes, a hurricane, and, although experts don't know exactly when or where it will hit, Hurricane Irene has already affected some major events in New England this weekend.

According to Patriots spokesman Jeff Cournoyer, this weekend's second Kenny Chesney concert at Gillette Stadium has been moved from Sunday, Aug. 28 to Friday, Aug. 26.

"Our first and foremost priority is the fans' safety," said promoter Louis Messina of TMG/AEG Live, "so we have made the difficult decision to reschedule the show."

All tickets for Sunday's show will be honored on the new date, and the line-up and set-times will remain the same. There will be no show on Sunday, August 28th.

"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!"

For fans who are not able to make Friday's show, refunds will be offered at point of purchase.
