Atlantic City to host Rascal Flatts beach concert in August

Country music stars Rascal Flatts will play a concert on the Atlantic City beach in August.

The Aug. 20 concert will come four days after another beach show featuring Maroon 5.

Unlike past years, in which beach concerts were free, paid admission is required for these shows.

Last summer, the city hosted free concerts by Blake Shelton and Lady Antebellum in the same weekend in August.

The Atlantic City Alliance estimates this year’s concerts will generate more than $23 million in visitor spending in Atlantic City.
