Country vocal group Rascal Flatts is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the “Summer Playlist Tour,” that includes special guest Michelle Grigg. It is the group’s 16th tour and criss-crosses the country, hitting venues from Charlotte to Cheyenne, between May 16-October 4.
On tour, Rascal Flatts is known for shows heavy on special effects, including video, pyrotechnics and laser lights. In 2016, the group sold its 10 millionth concert ticket.
Rascal Flatts tickets are available at all venues on TicketIQ.com. The company offers a Low Price Guarantee on all secondary market concert tickets and gives fans a wide variety of tickets to all shows to choose from. The Low Price Guarantee means that if you find a secondary market ticket for less on a site like Stubhub or Seatgeek, we'll give you 200% of the difference in ticket credit.
The priciest show of the tour is the last one, set for October 4 at Albuquerque, New Mexico. The show currently has a get-in price of $217 on the secondary market, and it is one of two shows with a get-in price of $100 or more. Tickets to most shows can be had for less than $50 on the secondary market.
The Albuquerque show is nearly sold out on the primary market. A handful of tickets in Section D are still available on the secondary market through Ticketmaster, starting at $218.
TicketIQ has a slightly larger selection of seats still available, in Sections C and E, for $222.
Considering the prices and somewhat limited availability, fans will be smart to comparison shop to find the best seats and the best price.
The only other show that is trending with a $100+ get-in price is the July 13 tour stop at Reno, Nevada, where fans have driven the cheap seats to $113 on the secondary market. On TicketIQ, tickets are available starting at $113 for General Admission Pit tickets, and up to $280 for Orchestra Center seats.
The prices compare to $115 on the primary market for General Admission Pit tickets and $175 for Orchestra Center tickets.

Rascal Flatts Launch 2015 "Riot" Tour
(1/23/15) Currently in rehearsals for their forthcoming Las Vegas residency, country music trio Rascal Flatts have now announced they will hit the rest of North America later this year with the 32-date Riot Tour.
Although no specific venues have been confirmed as yet, the chart-topping outfit have revealed that they will kick off their latest trek in St. Louis on May 29, with Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Toronto, Washington, West Palm Beach and Boston just some of the other cities also scheduled.
Gary LeVox and co., who will be joined on the Riot Tour by 2011 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery, will first take to the stage in 2015 for a nine-date stint at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, where another talent show victor, The Voice’s Craig Wayne Boyd, will provide support.
Tickets are available on TicketIQ for seven of these performances, including the opening show on Feb 25, all of which have a get-in price of $129. Fans can also get their hands on tickets for a number of their festival sets this year including Kennesaw’s Shaky Boots Festival on May 16 (2-day pass $266), their Columbus hometown’s Buckeye Country Superfest on June 20 ($79, 2-day pass $89), Cadott’s Country Fest on June 25 ($69, 4-day pass $267) and the Willamette Country Music Festival on August 14 (3-day pass $310).
Audiences should expect to hear all the highlights from last year’s number one album Rewind, while their recent tour of the same name also featured previous country chart-toppers “Bless The Broken Road,” “What Hurts The Most” and “Why Wait,” alongside cover versions of Merle Haggard’s “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink,” Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway” and Waylon Jennings’ “Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line.”
