Rascal Flatts Announce Las Vegas Residency
Rascal Flatts are headed to Sin City for a brief residency at the Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
Rascal Flatts Vegas Riot! will showcase Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney in nine shows between Feb. 25 and March 14, 2015. The trio promises that it will be a new, exciting and intimate experience for fans, and with 15 No. 1 singles, nearly 23 million albums sold and 30 million digital downloads to their credit, they know how to have a good time.
“We are thrilled to be playing such a storied venue as the Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas,” says DeMarcus (quote via Country Music Tattle Tale). “We’re so excited to do something so different for us. You will experience Rascal Flatts in a way you’ve never seen us before -- up close, intimate and personal, and we promise you one thing, it’s going to rock!
"We've blown the doors off for so long, I really want to make this show more about the music," he tells USA Today. "The people who are going to be in that venue on those shows are going to expect us to do the songs they've fallen in love with over the years, the songs that have been the soundtrack to their lives. I really want to make it more about the music and less about the production and focus on Rascal Flatts' strongest traits -- our songs and our signature harmonies."
This is the Joint's first-ever country residency, and they specifically were looking for a country act that could offer something different to fans that go to the Hard Rock.
"A Rascal Flatts concert is the epitome of a good time. The band knows how to get a crowd going, how to perform, and they’re passionate about their music and fans," explains Bobby Reynolds, vice president of AEG Live Las Vegas. "I can’t wait to see these guys and their fans take over the Joint. It will truly be unlike any other residency we’ve had."
It will also be an experience unlike any the trio has had. Normally, the group takes that time of the year to recharge from the road and find new songs to record. But DeMarcus notes that this residency may change up their routine.
"If it does well and is successful, it's something we'd be very interested in doing more of in the future," he says.
Tickets start at $39.50 plus fees and go on sale Nov. 21. More info is available on Rascal Flatts' website.
