Rascal Flatts Concert Ended Abruptly Due to Bomb Threat, Police Say
Authorities say a bomb threat is what prompted country group Rascal Flatts to abruptly end a concert in Indiana last week.
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department says the bomb threat made Thursday night for Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center in suburban Indianapolis was deemed a credible danger. The department said in a statement Monday night that it won’t release details about the threat while it is being investigated.
No arrests have been made concerning the threat.
The band didn’t return for an expected encore, after which a public-address announcement said the show was over. Security guards told people to evacuate the outdoor amphitheater.
Rascal Flatts said on Twitter that everyone was able to leave safely and thanked fans for their understanding.
The safety of our fans, band and crew is always the top priority for us, so we are so thankful for everyone who jumped into action and for your understanding. We will be back soon!— Rascal Flatts (@rascalflatts) August 10, 2018
