OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Rock bands took center stage Tuesday night in the latest blockbuster concert benefiting Oklahoma tornado victims.
Headliners included bands with ties to Oklahoma, like the Flaming Lips, which formed in Norman in 1983, and Kings of Leon, whose members grew up in Talihina.
The Rock for Oklahoma show was held at Chesapeake Arena in Oklahoma City. Other performers included Jackson Browne, Built to Spill, Grace Potter and Ben Kweller.
Proceeds from the concert benefited the United Way of Central Oklahoma.
The show followed back-to-back benefit concerts featuring country music's top stars, like Blake Shelton, Toby Keith and Garth Brooks.
