Rascal Flatts Will Return To The BJC October 7
God bless the broken road that led the Rascal Flatts straight to Penn State. The band largely responsible for country music’s mainstream popularity is coming back to the Bryce Jordan Center for the seventh time on October 7 as part of the Rhythm and Roots Tour. Up-and-coming country artist Chase Bryant will take the stage as a special guest.
The Rascal Flatts, perhaps known best for their cover of ‘Life is a Highway,’ aren’t exactly strangers to Penn State. With this visit, the group passes the Dave Matthews Band for second-most appearances in the BJC, trailing one show behind first place Bill Gaither. It’s no surprise they’re the most-awarded country band in the past decade with chart-toppers like ‘What Hurts The Most’ and ‘Summer Nights,’ and seven platinum albums to boot. They’ve headlined 14 tours in the past 14 years.
Tickets go on sale Friday, July 8 at the BJC, Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State Downtown Theatre, Ticketmaster, and by phone at 800-745-3000.

This will be Gary, Jay, and Joe’s first trip back to Happy Valley in more than six years. They picked a perfect time to come back, too — Homecoming week. The concert starts at 8:30 to accommodate for the parade. Here’s the typical setlist for the tour if you want to know what you and your gang will be getting into.
