Due to hurricane warnings Kenny Chesney has decided to move his show scheduled for Sunday Aug. 28 up to Friday Aug. 26. The start time-- 5 p.m.-- and line-up-- co-headliner Zac Brown Band and special guest Billy Currington-- remain the same.
In a statement released this morning Chesney said, "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. 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!"
More information can be found on the Gillette Stadium website.
For fans who can't attend the rescheduled date on Friday, refunds will be available at point of purchase.
Caveat: As of this moment, after about 7 minutes on hold, the Ticketmaster agent I spoke to hadn't received updated information and referred me to customer service for a refund. Customer service can be reached at 800-653-8000. A supervisor also didn't have updated info yet so it may be a little while before the refund process is streamlined.
*UPDATE: The Ticketmaster website has been updated for this show.
