And bad at that.

As big as that screeching fat singer is today, that band will be nobody in 5 years.

My fiance had pit tickets next to the stage. Just before Rascal Flatts came on stage they were asked to move back so paid models could take the front spots next to the stage...so the concert looked good on tv. Horrible way to treat paying fans! Some models didn't even know who Rascal Flatts was. Needless to say, she had a horrible time. She said Chris Young and Luke Bryan were great though.

Very opposite review from star tribune. they loved rf and just thought luke was eh. RF was awesome! i've seen them 4 times, this was my 2nd favorite show (last time I had 1st row so that was the best). i did very much like luke and chris too.

I don't actually agree with this post. I was at the concert last night and I had an amazing time. Rascal Flatts did AMAZING and I loved every song! I think it was a great overall concert!

While it wasn't the best Rascal Flatts concert I've seen, it wasn't as horrible as the PP made it out to be.

This article does not speak the truth. I was there last night and we got invited to be in the pit by the stage. Very Exciting and an amazing experience. I looked around at the crowd in the stands and they seemed to enjoy the concert as well. Great show no need to hate.

Did you watch this from somewhere outside? The concert was amazing!! All the hits and RF totally proved that they are going strong 10 years later!

Amazing show!

I bet a bunch of toothless rednecks disagree with this review. I would be pretty surprised if there was a cumulative IQ of 500 in the x last night.
So you're saying that concerts by other "stars" draw a better class of people? I doubt it.

Rob, I have to say you got it all wrong. I went to the Rascal Flatts concert on Friday night and it was AMAZING! ALL of the performers had very high energy and made the concert experience so much fun! That is my opinion I had a GREAT time and I would go back in a heartbeat!

Hmmm, I'm not sure what show you were at. This was my 10th time seeing Rascal Flatts, with over 1/2 of those times being at Xcel Energy Center and I will say without a doubt it was my favorite performance.

I'm guessing Rob that you are not even a listener of country music. It would be like asking me to review a rap concert. How about either just reporting what they did, without your opinion, or maybe just poll the fans as they are leaving the show and see what they thought. That's the real test of how good the show really was. I would bet money that the fans loved it! I know I did!

I was also in the pits I just wanted to share that the models were brought in by ABC, not Rascal Flatts. And according to the security personnel by us, RF did not want them there. They would never want their paying fans to be moved. I know this for a fact. I have mentioned this to their moderator in hopes to at least make the guys aware. They can't change it now, but I know they would if they could. I stood across from a few of these models and I was also disappointed to see paying fans moved to make room for these girls who spent more time staring at their phones and playing with their hair than watching the concert. They didn't even know the songs. I understand your disappointment and am sorry to hear you were not able to enjoy the rest of the show. I hope you will not hold it against RF and continue to support them.

You obviously do not enjoy country music, so why waste your time with a reply? The Xcel Energy Center was a packed house for this show and I for one was not disappointed. So I guess if living in the country and listening to RF makes me a country bumpkin, then I will embrace it. Some of us actually enjoy it.

Wow, you must be one dumb country bumkin!
Ten times?
Do you even know what the difference in music is?
It`s vast, and there are lots of great bands out there in all the styles.
Your CD collection must be pretty slim!
