Rascal Flatts ready to launch "Live & Loud" run
Country superstars Rascal Flatts will spend the summer trekking across North America on the "Live & Loud" tour, in continued support of last year's "Changed."
The multi-platinum-selling outfit will kick off the 34-city outing with a May 31 performance in Wantagh, NY, followed by a handful of dates scattered throughout the eastern portion of the U.S. The band will break from the domestic run in early July with a short European leg before returning stateside and beginning again July 18 in Eau Claire, WI. That leg of the excursion is more extensive, wrapping up Oct. 4 in Lubbock, TX.
The U.S. road trip will feature support from The Band Perry and Cassandee Pope, the winner of last year's reality music competition "The Voice."
Tickets for the North American tour are available via Live Nation, while information about overseas gigs is available at the trio's website.
Rascal Flatts unveiled "Changed," their eighth studio effort, last April via Big Machine Records. That collection peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Top Country Albums chart -- the group's seventh consecutive album to do so.
Earlier this month, the band completed its "Changed Tour," playing before one million fans, according to a press release.
