Is there any end to the inconveniences of aggressive weather?

Hurricane Irene may currently be hurtling towards the American southeast, but it’s already messing with many northeastern weekend plans — particularly for country fans.

Singer Kenny Chesney decided to push up his Sunday (Aug. 28) concert at Massachusetts’ Gillette Stadium to Friday (Aug. 26).

The reaction among fans was… not the most positive. Despite the obvious restrictions of holding an outdoor concert in a waning hurricane, fans took to Chesney’s Facebook page to gripe about the change of plans.

In the wake of the grumbles, USA Today reports that StubHub is now offering refunds to those uninterested in attending or unable to secure a babysitter.
