Superstars Align for Oklahoma Tornado Relief Benefit

Oklahoma City favorite sons the Flaming Lips will join an all-star line-up of musicians with a special connection to the state of Oklahoma for the Rock For Oklahoma Benefit concert, which will raise money for victims of both F5 tornados that struck Moore, Oklahoma City, and surrounding areas this spring.

The Flaming Lips, Kings of Leon, Jackson Browne, Built to Spill and special guests will perform at the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Tuesday, July 23, 2013. Tickets are $35 and $50 and go on sale this Friday, June 14th at 10 a.m. online via Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1.800.745.3000.

“Shakespeare said, ‘It is not enough to help the needy up, but to support them after,'” says Lips frontman Wayne Coyne. “In our small way we are trying to not just be here at the moment of immediate need, but to stay and help with the rebuilding. After all, this is our home and they are us and we are them.”
