ATLANTIC CITY -- The city canceled Saturday's and Monday's beach concerts featuring Florida Georgia Line and Blink-182 because of the impending coastal storm expected to hit this weekend.

Mayor Don Guardian on Friday night said the decision to cancel the shows was based on concerns about damaging winds from Tropical Storm Hermine.

"Out of an abundance of caution for concertgoers, staff and the bands, and everyone else involved, we have decided to cancel  this weekend's beach concerts," Guardian said in a statement.
