NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar is joining a star-studded country music concert planned to benefit victims of last month's deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma.

Toby Keith announced Wednesday that Hagar and country music legends Mel Tillis and John Anderson would be joining his Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert July 6 at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. Other performers include Garth Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, Willie Nelson and Ronnie Dunn.

Organizers say the $25 tickets will go on sale Friday. Ticket proceeds will benefit the United Way of Central Oklahoma's tornado relief efforts.

Keith is a native of Moore, where 24 people were killed in an EF5 tornado on May
