Rascal Flatts will be bidding farewell a bit early as the group’s final tour has been cancelled.
The trio shared the unfortunate news on Tuesday (May 19) in a heartfelt message to fans.
“Flattheads, after a lot of difficult conversations that we never thought we would be having, we have decided that in the interest of the safety of everyone involved we will not be moving forward with our Farewell Tour,” the group wrote.
The award-winning trio directed fans to Live Nation’s website to obtain refunds.
“2020 is still an important year for us as a band and a milestone we want to celebrate with our fans, so please stay tuned for some fun surprises coming your way soon,” they teased. “We love you and can’t thank you enough for being on this journey with us! Thank you for understanding.”
Rascal Flatts shocked fans in January with the announcement of their farewell tour.
“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,” Jay DeMarcus said at the time. “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. 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!”
