Rascal Flatts Abruptly Ends Show Due To Security Threat
Rascal Flatts was forced to cut short their Thursday night show in Noblesville, Indiana due to a security threat.
The country trio left the stage for what fans thought was a short intermission before an encore, but the band never returned to the stage. At the time, no one knew why the band stopped their performance, and according to IndyStar, fans left feeling disappointed when they didn't get to hear two hits: "God Bless The Broken Road" and "Life Is AHighway."
"Due to a security concern at the show last night, standard procedures were quickly executed and everyone was able to safely leave the building," Rascal Flatts explained on Friday via Twitter.
"The safety of our fans, band and crew is always the top priority for us, so we are so thankful for everyone who jumped into action and for your understanding. We will be back soon!"
When asked about the situation, law enforcement stated it was an open investigation and didn't share any further details.
One fan did see some disruption going on in the general admission "pit" close to the stage right before the set ended.
"(Rascal Flatts) had just finished their song 'Banjo' and did the what-was-thought-to-be-false 'Good night' before the encore," Andy VonDielingen told IndyStar. "Their piano player started to play and then just stopped and left. A few minutes later lights come on and security is pulling some guy looking to be in his 20s out of the pit... everyone is standing around, looking at each other and wondering what is going on."
The Rascall Flatts Back To Us tour continues through to the fall, with a stop at Toronto's Budweiser Stage on Aug. 16.
