"We had a few weeks off at the holidays, and now we're getting ready for the first-ever country residency at The Joint at the Hard Rock in Vegas. Those shows are going to be the ultimate way to kick off our 2015 tour, where we can try new things and pretty much do whatever the hell we want. We're having a blast with it, and we'll be counting the days til the buses pull back out of Nashville for opening night." With countless sold-out shows under their belts, Rascal Flatts' live show has been heralded as keeping "crowds on their feet, dancing and especially singing along," (Cleveland Plain Dealer), "brilliant" (Dallas Morning News) and "high energy" (St. Louis Post Dispatch). Their current Big Machine Records single "Riot," from which the tour name is lifted, is impacting radio now.
