The Kansas Star casino south of Wichita is postponing Sunday’s performance by country singer Tim McGraw to avoid conflicting with Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert, according to the Associated Press.
McGraw was to have been the inaugural performer in the casino’s new arena, but the show has been rescheduled to Oct. 12.
As previously reported, Keith, Owasso residents Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, former Tulsan Ronnie Dunn, Keith’s daughter Krystal Keith, Moore native Kellie Coffey, Willie Nelson, Sammy Hagar, Mel Tillis, and John Anderson as well as Checotah native Carrie Underwood (via satellite from the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville) will perform Saturday at the Twister Relief Concert.
The sold-out Twister Relief Concert is set for Saturday at the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. Doors open at 1:30 p.m., and show time is 3 p.m. Garth Brooks will go on at 4 p.m., while Keith will close the show.
The concert will end with a 10-minute fireworks display. Rumors are also abound of a grand finale performance, according to a news release. Net proceeds will go to the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund to aid recovery efforts.
Tickets for McGraw’s postponed show in Kansas will be honored at the October concert. Kansas Star also says it will donate $5 from each ticket sold for either date to Oklahoma’s relief efforts, according to the AP.
