Rascal Flatts Reveal Summer 2012 Tour Dates
With Rascal Flatts' new album 'Changed' coming out on April 3, they've been teasing their summer tour for a while now, keeping fans guessing about the details as they drop descriptors like "spectacular" and "fresh." The wait is finally over, as the trio announced that they will be traveling the country on American Band Tour beginning June 15 at Hartford, Conn.'s Comcast Theatre.
The 'Easy' singers also announced that they'll be taking some fellow bands on the road with them, including Little Big Town, Eli Young Band and Edens Edge as the openers. The tour will go into September, hitting stops all across the country, with Thompson Square filling in for Eli Young Band for at least two of the dates. The last four dates have yet to be announced, though their locations have already been revealed.
“We are always looking for new ways to re-energize our live shows,” Jay DeMarcus said of the tour. “We thought bringing out these bands, whom are among some of our favorite vocal groups, would make a great night of entertainment!” And they're not the only ones who are psyched about the upcoming tour.
Hitting Twitter late last night, Edens Edge tweeted, "Really excited that we’ll be going on tour with Rascal Flatts! So honored to be part of this and share the stage with such awesome bands! Check out the dates and let us know if you're comin' to see us. <3 HB, CG, and DB."
Tickets for the American Band Tour are available for purchase on Rascal Flatts' website.
