More help is headed to Oklahoma! Toby Keith will lead the Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert Saturday, July 6 at the University of Oklahoma’s Memorial Stadium in Norman. Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood and Ronnie Dunn are among the performers. All seats are $25 and tickets go on sale Friday, June 21. Proceeds benefit the United Way Of Central Oklahoma’s May Tornadoes Relief Fund.
“I grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I’ve got lots of family and friends who were directly affected,” Keith says. “I know these folks and they’re resilient, but we’re going to keep helping them any way we can. I’m proud to get together with some others from around here who are just as committed as I am to supporting these communities.”
“Once we got the news that the tornado had hit Toby’s hometown, Miss Yearwood and I told Toby we were at his service for whatever he chose to do,” Brooks says. “I am amazed at the human spirit the tornado victims have shown. I am humbled by the giving of the volunteers. It is an honor to get to be a part of this healing process.” Updates for the event and to the lineup will be posted at www.tobykeith.com
