|Rascal Flatts is one of the hottest touring acts in any genre of music selling over 7 million concert tickets in their career, and with this weekend’s wrap of the Farmers Insurance Presents “Changed Tour,” 1 million of those were from fans attending shows in this year alone. Rascal Flatts began the year with their “Thaw Out 2012” tour adding 47 additional dates on the Farmers Insurance Presents “Changed Tour” to bring the 2012 year-end total to just over 60 concerts.
Their performances were enthusiastically received by the fans and critics alike. The Grand Rapids Press Gazette shared this about the concert, “The beginning, middle and end of the Rascal Flatts show were all exceptionally fun and well done.” “Lead singer Gary LeVox has a superb voice that can reach high registers like few other performers in country music today. It’s a remarkable gift,” said the Hamilton Spectator. Billboard.com’s review of the show said, “The trio’s harmonies have only gotten higher and tighter over time, and they took command of the stage from the opening notes and didn’t let loose until the show was over.”
Rascal Flatts is the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade and the #1 debut of their new release, CHANGED, earned them the distinction of being one of only four acts to have seven consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart during the Soundscan era. Since their musical debut in 2000, the band has sold over 21 million albums, 25 million
digital downloads and delivered 14 #1 singles to the top of the charts. Rascal Flatts is the most awarded Country group of the past decade, earning over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People's Choice Awards and more. They are currently nominated for two American Music Awards and four American Country Awards.
Rascal Flatts will extend the Farmers Insurance Presents “Changed Tour” into 2013, kicking off a winter leg on January 10 with special guests The Band Perry. Please check www.rascalflatts.com for up to date tour information.
