VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Life is a highway and the road is coming to an end for Rascal Flatts with their last U.S. tour.

The country music band who formed two decades ago across the Ohio River in Columbus, Ohio will be performing their last U.S. tour with “Farewell: Life is a Highway Tour” set to kick off on June 11 of this year.

The band rose to fame 20 years ago with “Prayin for Daylight” and has become one of the last decade’s most awarded group in the genre.

Don’t worry Hampton Roads fans, you won’t be singing “What Hurt’s the Most” as it seems the band has granted your wish and blessed the broken road to Virginia Beach.

That’s right. Although it won’t be for a couple months, one of the stops for the band’s last U.S. tour will be at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia Beach on September 11.

They will also be at the Jiffy Lube Live Amphitheater in Bristow (September 12) and at the Coastal Credit Union Music Park in Raleigh (September 10).

In an interview posted on their website, the band’s lead vocalist Gary Levox noted the incredible memories their fans have shared with them and how the band’s songs played in different parts of their lives.

“That’s why we create music and the reason we can’t wait to celebrate this incredible 20 year journey all year, with our fans who we love dearly.”
