Rascal Flatts get started on "Live & Loud" North American tour
Rascal Flatts have officially kicked off their "Live & Loud" trek across North America, beginning the trek with a crowd of more than 32,000 fans.
The country superstars outfit began the outing last Friday (5/31) at Wantagh, NY's Nikon at Jones Beach. The award-winning outfit's performance marked the venue's grand opening since Hurricane Sandy last year.
Thirty-two arena shows remain, continuing Thursday (6/6) in Atlanta, and pushing through an Oct. 4 concert in Lubbock, TX.
The Band Perry and Cassandee Pope, the winner of last year's reality music competition "The Voice," are handling opening duties on the North American trek.
Before each event, concertgoers can take part in the @FarmersFans Zone, featuring a customized Rascal Flatts off-road vehicle, basketball shootout, ladder golf and other games.
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.
