Rascal Flatts Cancel Shows Due To Illness

Rascal Flatts have shelved three upcoming shows due to illness. The band was scheduled to appear in Idaho, Washington State and British Columbia on August 7, 8 and 9, but have released a statement explaining that singer Gary LeVox is too ill to perform.

The trio also bagged a show last month scheduled for Oklahoma City, and thus far the next scheduled performance on their Rewind tour is set for August 15 in Phoenix.

Flatts released an official statement on the cancellations:

"It is incredibly difficult to make the decision to cancel shows and disappoint our loyal fans who have been so good to us over the years," band member Jay DeMarcus explains.

"The schedule of shows this past weekend, coupled with media days in New York City, have left him without a voice. We promise to return as soon as we can and give our fans the best show possible!"
