Jason Aldean, Rascal Flatts latest to call off Tampa concerts

The MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre’s 2020 Country Megaticket is canceled, too.

How bad is the concert outlook at Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre these days? Even shows that haven’t gone on sale yet are being called off.

Country stars Jason Aldean and Rascal Flatts have squashed upcoming tours that were scheduled to bring them to Tampa on Sept. 11 and Oct. 16, respectively. Aldean has postponed his tour to 2021, while Rascal Flatts — who had planned this to be their farewell tour — canceled theirs outright, with no details about when they’ll play again.

The good news, if there is any, is that individual tickets had not yet gone on sale for either of these concerts. They were only available through Live Nation’s Country Megaticket, a bundle that allows fans to buy seats for six shows at once. Two other Megaticket shows, Thomas Rhett and Lady Antebellum, had already called off their tours.

As a result of all this, Live Nation has announced that its 2020 Megaticket has been canceled, with refunds on their way to people who purchased one.

What remains unclear, though, is the status of the two remaining Megaticket shows in Tampa — Brad Paisley on Sept. 6 and Brooks and Dunn on Oct. 23 (a show that had already been postponed from May 29). Paisley has made no mention of the tour or Tampa show on social media, and tickets to Brooks and Dunn are still on sale.
