Figures are not in yet for how much money Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert raised for the United Way, but early reports from his camp indicate that if the nearly daylong show didn’t break records for paid attendance, it sure came close.

Toby Keith On His Oklahoma Tornado Relief Concert: ‘It’s Wonderful People Care & Want To Do This For My Hometown’
As an Oklahoma native, Toby Keith is all too familiar with the devastation tornado season can bring. This year, however, the devastation was more severe than usual.
One of Toby Keith’s tour buses caught fire earlier this week near Indianapolis. Luckily no one was hurt.
Between his restaurant chain, liquor brand and smart investments, Toby Keith is a “one-man cash machine” and among music’s most successful businesspeople.
“I had a deadline to meet,” says Keith of “Drinks After Work,” “and I had a few things in front of me that I really liked, and I said, ‘This one sounds like summertime to me, let’s go with this.’”
Tickets for Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert went on sale Friday and sold out in a little over an hour.
“I like to do everything I can for our military,” said Toby, “but I have to say, I’ve never done anything like this before.”
After numerous hints that a second Oklahoma tornado benefit concert was in the works, the news is finally out.
