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,” Chesney said in a statement Wednesday.

“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!”

Ticket holders who cannot make Friday’s show can get refunds at the point of purchase.
