If you’re in the path of Hurricane Florence, I figure the last thing you’re worried about right now is a concert. Of course, country fans are a hardy, sometimes crazy bunch, so maybe this is news that will come as a surprise and disappointment to you.
Anyhoo, Jason Aldean, who was scheduled to perform in Cincinnati this week, has been forced to cancel his show on Thursday due to flooding of the Ohio River as a result of Florence. Refunds are available to those wanting them.
Due to the unprecedented amount of rainfall over the past few days causing the Ohio River to rise above flood stage, the Jason Aldean concert scheduled for this Thursday, September 13th has been cancelled. Refunds will be available at point of purchase.

On Tuesday, the Riverbend Music Center tweeted instructions to fans on how to get refunds.
To receive a refund for @Jason_Aldean tickets purchased at our Box Office, you must bring the tickets back to the Box Office. The Riverbend Box Office will be open regular business hours from 9/11/18– 9/18/18:

Also forced to cancel shows is the Zac Brown Band who scrapped shows this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in Virginia and North Carolina. Refunds will also be provided for these shows.
Frances is currently a Category 4 hurricane and is expected to hit the Carolinas Thursday.
Stay safe out there, everyone. Stay safe.
