In early 2020, Rascal Flatts shocked fans with the announcement of a farewell tour, marking the final run of the award-winning trio’s touring career.
The tour was eventually scrapped, however, as the coronavirus outbreak put a stop to large gatherings in 2020. Now, with no Rascal Flatts tour dates on the books for the foreseeable future, fans are left wondering what’s next and if the band will share plans for a farewell tour in the future.
In a recent interview with Access Online, the group offered an update on the tour and even teased that it may not be their last tour after all.
“I don’t know what the tour is gonna look like. We don’t know when it’s gonna happen. I don’t even know if it’s gonna be a farewell tour,” Jay DeMarcus said. “Who knows what’s going to happen? I just know that we’re waiting to see. I’m not saying it’s not going to be, but we’re waiting.”
“It’s gonna be called the stay well tour,” Gary LeVox quipped.
Although their tour plans are on hold, Rascal Flatts is still making music together. The trio recently released, How They Remember You, a seven-song EP. The project features the trio’s latest single and title track as well as a heartfelt cover of Kenny Rogers’ “Through The Years.”
