Weekend Happenings: Journey & Rascal Flatts Mix it Up, Nights in Ventnor & More
A classic rock band from the ’80’s and country hit makers from the 2000’s hitting the road together? Why, yes they are! Journey and Rascal Flatts bring a show to Boardwalk Hall Sunday, August 4th, that should be, (sorry, Donnie & Marie) a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll.
The two bands first shared a stage at the CMT Music Awards with a version of Journey’s Don’t stop Believin’. They also did a live CMT Crossroads in New Orleans this year on Super Bowl weekend. Sunday you can expect a hit-geared show with the bands performing separately and together.
