Luke Bryan’s upcoming shows in Florida have been postponed due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Ian. 

Bryan was scheduled to appear in Estero, Florida at the Hertz Arena on Sept. 29, West Palm Beach, Florida at the iTHINK Financial Amphitheatre on Sept. 30, and Tampa, Florida at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre on Oct. 1. According to his website, those shows have now been rescheduled for Nov. 2, Nov. 4, and Nov. 5 (respectively). 

The Hertz Arena also confirmed the rescheduled date on social media and encouraged fans to hold on to their tickets for the new date. 

Hurricane Ian is barreling toward the state of Florida and is expected to make landfall mid-week. According to the latest reports, the hurricane is expected to hit with winds as strong as 140 mph. 

Bryan has yet to issue a statement on the postponement of the shows. 

Luke Bryan’s Raised Up Right Tour kicked off on June 9 in Charleston, West Virginia and was originally slated to conclude on October 28 in Jacksonville, Florida. However with the newly rescheduled dates, the tour will now wrap up on November 5 in Tampa, Florida. 

The trek features support from Riley Green and Mitchell Tenpenny.

​​“My favorite place to be is on stage performing to country music fans,” Bryan previously shared. “So thankful every night when I walk out on that stage and know you are there to have a blast along beside me. It never gets old!”

The tour name comes from the lyrics of Bryan’s previous single “Up.”

“Up / In the sky, there’s a guy / Lookin’ down on us / Lookin’ up / Our whole life, raised up right / In a town nobody knows / What a way to grow,” he sings on the chorus.
