Details for Toby Keith‘s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert have been revealed. The Moore native has put together an event, with the help of Garth Brooks, a fellow Okie, as well as Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood and Ronnie Dunn. All of the aforementioned acts are set to perform. The concert is slated for Saturday, July 6 at the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman.

Proceeds will benefit The United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund.

Since Keith grew up where the storm hit, and has relatives in the region, staging this benefit show was an incredibly personal act for him. “I grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I’ve got lots of family and friends who were directly affected,” the singer said.

He also nodded to the strength of his fellow statesmen, saying “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.”

Brooks and his wife Yearwood were quick to offer their participation in the event, as well. “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.”

The show will begin at 3PM, with doors at 1:30PM.

Tickets go on sale next Friday, June 21, at 10AM ET. There is a limit of eight tickets per person. All seats are $25, all-inclusive. All seating is reserved.

Updates regarding the event and the lineup will be posted here.

Blake Shelton‘s benefit, which he cobbled together immediately after the storm and aired on NBC, raised millions. Rockers Kings of Leon and the Flaming Lips are also staging a benefit for the end of July, so the entire national music community is rushing to the aid of the victims of this deadly act of nature.
