In January, Rascal Flatts shocked the country music community when they announced their plans to embark on a Farewell Tour after 20 years of performing together. The trio made the announcement on CBS This Morning, citing the need for a break as the reason for saying “goodbye” for now.
They also shared the news on social media:
“When we started out 20 years ago, we could not imagine all of the people, places and gifts we would encounter. As we head out on the Rascal Flatts Farewell – Life is A Highway Tour, there is no sadness. Just new chapters, new journeys, and new beginnings,” read the statement.
But Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney, and Jay DeMarcus have made one thing clear. While they’re saying “farewell” for now, they’re not saying “farewell” forever.
“We’re not gonna sign some pact that says we’re never gonna tour again or something like that,” DeMarcus said on CBS This Morning. “We all still love each other.”
The group plans to share that love on their Farewell Tour, which had 25 stops when it was first announced. At that time, the tour was set to kick off in Indianapolis on June 11 and conclude in West Palm Beach on October 17.
But now, the schedule has been shaken up, as Rascal Flatts just added 11 additional dates to their Farewell trek.
On February 17, the group announced they added new stops to the Farewell Tour. The starting date of June 11 remains the same, but the tour has now been extended past October 17.
Choosing to wrap things up in Music City, Rascal Flatts announced the last stop of their Farewell Tour will be in Nashville on October 30.
The group also added a “hometown” show in Columbus, Ohio, since both LeVox and DeMarcus are from there.
In addition to the new shows, Rascal Flatts named the special guests joining them on their trek. Chris Lane, Chase Rice, Avenue Beat, Caylee Hammack, King Calaway, Matt Stell, and Rachel Wammack will unite with the trio on select dates during the tour.
