Rascal Flatts's Final Concert Will Be 'Emotional' & 'Sad' The Band Says

Rascal Flatts are opening up about their farewell tour and final show that happens months from now during the Country Radio Seminar this week.

The guys – Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney – already know that the show will be very emotional for them.

“It’s going to be really, really sad, and it’s going to be emotional,” Jay shared.

Joe Don added, “It will be so bittersweet to play that last note of the guitar, hear that last note ring out on [DeMarcus’] bass and hear Gary hit the stratosphere…Bridgestone Arena is liable to just explode because of Gary’s voice that last night. It’s [going to be] so much beautifulness, so much love and so much appreciation for everything we’ve gotten to do … I don’t know how I’m gonna feel, but there’s a lot to be thankful for, for sure.”

The trio also revealed that their fans have many questions about them saying goodbye to the stage.

“A lot of people have asked us on social media … is there something that happened?” Jay said. “Did we have a falling out? Have we fought with each other? Have we gotten to the point to where we can’t get along? And that’s really not the case. We love each other, probably more now than we ever did when we first started. We’ve just gotten to this point in the road to where it’s forking, and we’re entering into new seasons of our lives. We haven’t signed a pact to say we’re never going to work together ever again.”

He did add that while there are no reunion plans just yet, there might be down the road.

“There are no immediate plans to do any more Rascal Flatts shows past Oct. 30,” he says. “I want people to know that this is a decision that we didn’t reach lightly. It was a very tough decision … but it is something we feel is the best for the three of us at this point in our lives right now.”

Rascal Flatts announced their farewell tour at the top of the year, and their final show will be in June.
