Press release from the Kansas Star Casino

MULVANE, Kan. – The Kansas Star Arena today announced that its upcoming Tim McGraw concert has been rescheduled from July 7 to October 12.

Both the Kansas Star and McGraw decided to postpone the concert in order to avoid a conflict with the tornado relief fundraising concert in Norman, Oklahoma, on Saturday, July 6.

"While we were looking forward to hosting Tim McGraw this weekend, helping our neighbors in their time of need must take precedence," said Scott Cooper, General Manager of the Kansas Star Casino. "We encourage everyone to support the artists donating their time and talents at this Saturday's concert in Oklahoma, and we look forward to hosting Tim at the Kansas Star Arena in October."

Joe Nichols, scheduled to open for McGraw on July 7, is unavailable for the rescheduled date. An opening act will be announced soon.

Tickets remain on sale for the October 12 show. Kansas Star Arena will donate $5 from every ticket sold to tornado relief efforts.

Tickets for the July 7th concert will be honored for the rescheduled performance. Ticket holders wishing to receive refunds should take their tickets to the point of purchase. Ticket buyers that bought tickets by phone or the Internet will be contacted by email.
