Atlantic City Beach Concerts Canceled Due to Approaching Tropical Storm Hermine
Due to the approach of Tropical Storm Hermine, the Atlantic City Beach Concerts scheduled for Saturday and Monday have been canceled.
In a statement from the City of Atlantic City late Friday night:
Due to the significance of impending Tropical Storm Hermine, the City started accessing the storms effect on future concerts with tidal surge effects on Thursday, September 1, 2016 and required Live Nation to change the plot plan of the ocean side of the event due to the upcoming tidal surges.
However, due to the unsafe conditions with Tropical Storm Hermine and its effects to the beach and surrounding areas and in the interest of Public Safety, specifically those who would have attended the concerts on Saturday, September 3, 2016 and Monday, September 5, 2016, the City of Atlantic City in conjunction with the City's Office of Emergency Management and the Atlantic County Office of Emergency Management are cancelling the special event concerts on those dates.
We need to cancel due to Public Safety concerns including tidal surge, coastal flooding with accumulating tides and high winds from Tropical Storm Hermine, which are forecasted into early next week by the National Weather Service."
Refunds for Saturday's Florida Georgia Line concert and Monday's Blink-182 concert will be available at the point of purchase.
