Less than a week after tornadoes ripped through his home state, tickets are going on sale for Blake Shelton's star-studded Oklahoma City charity telethon.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday for “Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert,” which will be staged at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W Reno.
“Working hard on putting this benefit together,” the Ada native promised Thursday on Twitter, two days after he announced his plans for a televised tornado relief benefit. “Gonna be (an) unbelievable line up for a great cause.”
The star of NBC's hit TV show “The Voice” has recruited his Grammy Award-winning wife and fellow Tishomingo resident Miranda Lambert, as well as Oklahoma natives and Country Music Hall of Famers Reba McEntire and Vince Gill.
Additional guests for the concert will be announced shortly, according to a news release.
The show will be televised live at 8 p.m. Wednesday on NBC. It also will air on cable networks Style, G4, Bravo, E! and CMT on either a live or delayed basis.
The show will aid victims of this week's tornadoes, including the EF5 twister that killed 24 people and injured more than 370 others as it tore through Moore, Newcastle and south Oklahoma City.
“Everyone has their way to help, and mine as an entertainer is to perform to help raise money and awareness for this tragedy,” Shelton said in the news release. “This is why I want to do this special and especially hold it in Oklahoma City, which is near ground zero.”
Tickets are $25, with a limit of eight per person. Tickets can be purchased at the Chesapeake Energy Arena box office, all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at (800) 745-3000 and online at Ticketmaster.com.
