Rascal Flatts

Rascal Flatts’ farewell tour was set to stop here Aug. 1.

Rascal Flatts and Nickelback have canceled their concerts in Omaha.

Both groups canceled their entire 2020 tours due to the novel coronavirus.

Set to be a farewell tour, Rascal Flatts’ outing was scheduled to stop at CHI Health Center on Aug. 1.

“Flattheads, after a lot of difficult conversations that we never thought we would be having, we have decided that in the interest of the safety of everyone involved we will not be moving forward with our Farewell Tour,” the band said in a statement. “We love you and can’t thank you enough for being on this journey with us! Thank you for understanding.”

Nickelback’s Aug. 9 concert would have been its first in Omaha since 2017.

“So many have been affected by this, and that is not something we take for granted,” the band said in a statement. “The right thing to do is ensure that our fans have access to refund options during these challenging times.”

Ticket holders for both shows are being asked to visit livenation.com/refund for refund information.

The cancellations are two more entries in a series of scrapped and postponed shows at the Omaha arena. The next scheduled concert there is Dan + Shay on Aug. 13.
