Doors open at 1:30 p.m., show time is 3 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 21 at 10am; all seats are $25, all inclusive, all seats reserved - eight-ticket purchase limit.

Proceeds will benefit The United Way Of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Updates on the event and lineup will be posted at www.tobykeith.com.

 "I grew up in Moore.  I live in Norman and I've got lots of family and friends who were directly affected," Keith said. "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 said. "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."
