Oklahoma ready to rock

July 14, 2013 by  

Later this month, folks in and around Oklahoma City will be able to get a glimpse of some of today’s biggest rock bands, all in aid of raising funds for those affected by the tornados in the area earlier this year.

‘Rock for Oklahoma’ is being headlined by Kings of Leon, who might be tempted to give a taster of their album ‘Mechanical Bull’, due out this September. The Tennessee quartet, made up of three brothers and a cousin, is sure to give a performance of the crowd-pleaser ‘Sex On Fire’, along with other tracks from recent albums.

Rock veterans the Flaming Lips will also be there, fresh from releasing their 13th studio album ‘The Terror’. Singer and songwriter Jackson Browne will bring a bit of folk and country rock to the proceedings, while Idaho indie-rockers Built to Spill will also be throwing their weight behind the fundraising efforts.

With some big names to enjoy, tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster or through the venue’s box office. Donations for this fundraiser will gladly be accepted throughout the event.

Tickets cost between $35 and $50 per person depending on seating selected. The Rock for Oklahoma concert is being held on Tuesday, July 23, with the doors opening at 5:00 pm and the show beginning at 6:30 pm at the Chesapeake Energy Arena located at 100 W Reno Avenue in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. To learn more about this fundraising concert, or to purchase tickets, please visit the event’s website or call 800-745-3000.
