Country superstars Rascal Flatts have renamed their summer outing, now dubbed the "Changed Tour," and tacked a few more stops onto the impending run.

The tour, which kicks off June 15 in Hartford, CT, now pushes into late October, visiting 32 major markets before the Oct. 27 conclusion in West Palm Beach, FL. Since last check, shows have been added in Tacoma, WA (9/22); Phoenix, AZ (10/4); and Denver, CO (10/6); among others. A trio of performances in Vancouver, Winnipeg and Grand Forks, ND, are also on the itinerary, though official dates for those concerts have not yet been announced.

Country contemporaries Little Big Town, the Eli Young Band and Edens Edge will provide opening support on the outing, with Thompson Square filling in for Eli Young Band on two Texas shows.

"Changed," Rascal Flatts' eighth studio effort, will hit retailers April 3, though fans can pre-order the album now at group's website. The 11-track collection, which will be released by Big Machine Records, follows the platinum-selling outfit's 2010 effort, "Nothing Like This." That album peaked at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 and debuted at the top of the magazine's Country Albums chart.
