Hurricane Florence is expected to makes landfall on the Carolina coast late on Thursday, September 13.
Announcing their decision to cancel shows at the three venues threatened by the Category 4 storm, Zac Brown band tweets: "We are urging everyone to stay safe and our thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time!".
