Zac Brown Band and Sam Hunt’s upcoming stadium concert, set for early next month in St. Louis, has been canceled.
According to KMOV4, event organizers were forced to cancel ZBB and Hunt’s upcoming appearance at Busch Stadium in Saint Louis, Missouri “due to unforeseen circumstances.” The news comes just two weeks after tickets went on sale.
The concert dubbed, ‘Welcome Back STL,’ was originally scheduled to take place on Friday, August 13 as a one-night event sponsored by Bud Light Seltzer.

Tickets purchased through Cardinals.com/WelcomeBackSTL, by phone or with a credit card at the stadium will automatically be refunded. However, tickets purchased with cash at the stadium box office must be returned in order to get a refund.
While organizers sighted “unforeseen circumstances” as the reason for cancellation, some fans are questioning whether or not the ongoing pandemic has impacted their decision to cancel.
Missouri is currently experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases, according to the Associated Press.
“Missouri has the nation’s fourth-worst COVID-19 diagnosis rate over the past week, with one in every 360 people diagnosed with COVID-19,” the outlet reported.
According to another report from the Associated Press, only 47.5% of Missouri residents have been vaccinated, which is nearly 10 percent less than the national average.
