Tickets on sale Friday, November 20 at 10 a.m.
LAS VEGAS – November 16, 2015 – Multi-Platinum selling trio Rascal Flatts will return to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas for a second, nine-show residency, Rascal Flatts Rhythm & Roots, from Wednesday, February 17 to Saturday, March 5. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 20 at 10 a.m
Rascal Flatts (Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney) wowed fans and critics last February as they performed the first-ever country residency at The Joint. Due to the run’s overwhelming success, the trio will once again make the award-winning venue their home with new shows that will highlight the original Rascal Flatts sound that fans know and love.
“We had such a great time at The Joint earlier this year,” said Joe Don Rooney. “Being the first country act to have a residency there we didn’t really know what to expect. The shows were wild and we knew that if given the chance we would come running back. We are going to mix it up a bit this time and are working through ideas on how to make it a different experience for the fans. It’s Vegas, so you can bet we’re gonna be stepping up our game.”
To date, Rascal Flatts have sold more than 22.8 million albums, more than 29 million digital downloads and more than 9 million concert tickets. They remain the most awarded country music group of the past decade with over 40 trophies from the American Country Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, American Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards, People’s Choice Awards and more. Their most recent album, REWIND (Big Machine Records), debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, making Rascal Flatts one of only four acts from the SoundScan era to have eight consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot.
“Rascal Flatts isn’t just one of the best country bands out there – they’re one of the best bands, period. Things really become special when a fan can see them in a venue that’s a fraction of the size of what they normally perform in,” said Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking at AEG Live Las Vegas. “Gary, Jay and Joe Don loved the intimacy of The Joint and the connection they had with their fans – literally reaching out and touching them. They realized how much fun they had during their last residency, and we all couldn’t wait to do it again.”
“We took a huge leap of faith by switching up our signature rock ‘n’ roll residencies and bringing in a country music group,” said Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “Rascal Flatts really knocked it out of the park and helped influence a lot of other country music programming on property. We are extremely excited to have these guys back at The Joint for what is sure to be another successful residency.”
