Rascal Flatts Xcel Energy Center

After the RNC has put the Xcel Energy Center back together, the Xcel will welcome country act Rascal Flatts on October 10th. It will be the trio's fourth show at the Xcel Energy Center since 2002. Clearly the group recognizes their large fan base in Minnesota and enjoys playing at the “X.” Who wouldn’t?!

Opening for Rascal Flatts will be young country superstar Taylor Swift. You can bet the X will sell out fast to screaming young teen girls who want to rock along with Swift. She may not be as big as Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus, but she is close. Swift, a 17-year old singer/songwriter has enjoyed incredible success with her self-titled debut, topping both the country album and song charts and nearly every teen girl can sing along to her songs on command.

If you don’t know a young teen girl to tell you all about Taylor Swift, then I can almost guarantee you have heard of Rascal Flatts. The group has sold more than 16 million copies of their first five albums and scored 19 top 10 country radio hits. This years Rascal Flatts tour will be called “Bob That Head Tour 2008.” So don’t miss the chance to bob your head at the Xcel Energy Center on October 10th – Buy Rascal Flatts tickets today!
