Rascal Flatts announces intimate charity concert at Hard Rock Tulsa
Mar 23, 2012 (Tulsa World - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Rascal Flatts, featuring Picher native Joe Don Rooney, will perform a one-off charity concert May 28 at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
The country music act will raise money for Owasso-based Folds of Honor Foundation. Tickets are $125 and go on sale April 12, available at tulsaworld.com/hardrockcasino, 918-384-ROCK and venue box office. Guests must be at least 21 years old.
All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the nonprofit, venue management said.
This is a rare opportunity to see the band in a "homecoming" show at an intimate venue. The act has sold millions of tickets to sold-out live arena shows in recent years.
The band is lead vocalist Gary LeVox, guitarist-vocalist Rooney and bassist-vocalist Jay DeMarcus.
The Folds of Honor Foundation provides post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving America. To date, nearly 2,600 scholarships have been awarded.
