Rascal Flatts farewell tour includes stop in Alpharetta

Rascal Flatts will say goodbye after 20 years with a summer tour that hits Ameris Bank Amphitheatre.

The country band has dubbed the run, appropriately, “Rascal Flatts Farewell: Life is a Highway,” after their hit 2006 cover of the Tom Cochrane hit. 

The frontline of singer Gary LeVox, bassist Jay DeMarcus and guitarist Joe Don Rooney, will kick off the farewell in June in Indianapolis.

Tickets for the tour, including the Oct. 15 date in Alpharetta, will be available first through the Live Nation Country Megaticket; more information will be available soon at

Throughout their career, Rascal Flatts earned 17 No. 1 country hits including “Bless the Broken Road’ and “What Hurts the Most” and sold more than 23 million albums. They charted in 2018 in with “Back to Life,” which reached No. 17 on Billboard’s country airplay chart. 

"We’re really looking forward to getting to spend this entire year loving on our fans, and thanking them for allowing us to have the most amazing career over the last 20 years. While it is of course bittersweet, it is so important to us to celebrate what our music has meant to their lives, as well as what the fans have meant to us,” DeMarcus said. “There is no sadness here, just new chapters, new journeys, and new beginnings. Rascal Flatts’ music will live on forever, because of our fans, and this year is all about them!”
