The group announced Thursday its concert at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, originally scheduled for Saturday night, will be moved up 24 hours, the Miami Herald reported.

Dorian is expected to be a Category 4 hurricane when it makes landfall on Florida's east coast. The time frame for when the storm is expected to hit the state remains uncertain, as it could hit as early as the Labor Day weekend and as late as Tuesday, forecasters said.

The gates will open at 6 p.m. at the stadium, with the Stones scheduled to hit the stage at 8:30 p.m. There will be no opening act.

"Due to the weather forecast, the Rolling Stones show scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 31, at the Hard Rock Stadium has been moved to tomorrow night, Friday, Aug. 30," representatives for the Rolling Stones tweeted Thursday. "All tickets will be honored for the new date."

Ticket holders unable to attend Friday can get a refund via Ticketmaster, a spokesman for the Stones told the Herald.
