THE FLAMING LIPS ADD TWO SHOWS WITH SUPPORT FROM SPIRITUALIZED TO CURRENT U.S. TOUR

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.

Losses from these storms are estimated to reach upwards of $2 billion. Many of the short-term needs of the people affected by the tornados have already been met; the goal of Rock for Oklahoma is to help them with long-term issues and problems, such as regaining livelihoods. All of the proceeds will be dispersed to central Oklahoma community organizations and charities, via local charities.
