Rascal Flatts will perform nine shows with special guest and season seven winner of NBC’s “The Voice,” Craig Wayne Boyd, at The Joint from Wednesday, February 25 to Saturday, March 14.

Fifty members of Foothill High School’s Marching Band will rev up the crowd by playing a rendition of Rascal Flatts’ hit song “Fast Cars and Freedom.” While performing, the ensemble will parade out of The Joint to Hard Rock Hotel’s main entrance in preparation for the band’s big arrival.

“We are honored to be a part of this musical event with a group like Rascal Flatts,” said Joe Caruso, principal of Foothill High School. “These kids have been practicing for months and it’s something they will never forget. Our community will talk about it for a long time.”

Signaling the green flag to the residency, Rascal Flatts band members Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney will each arrive to the property in style in Richard Petty NASCAR race cars and will hop on stage to say a few words. Foothill High School’s Marching Band will then lead the trio into The Joint with an instrumental procession of “Life is a Highway.”

While in town, Rascal Flatts will also sing the national anthem and Boyd will perform during the pre-race festivities at the Kobalt 400 Sprint Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 8.
