Toby Keith concert makes Norman merchants sing



Fairfield Inn & Suites is completely sold out and some of those guests are associated with the concert. Hampton Inn is getting full which is not uncommon for the summer, but at least some of those clients have said they’re coming for the concert.

“We’ve had a ton of calls asking for reservations on the sixth,” said Kristi Randall, of Hampton Inn guest services. “It’s normally a real slow weekend for us the Fourth of July and the hotel is totally sold out and very busy on Friday,” said Kennon. “People are coming all the way from Tuscaloosa, Ala., for the concert.”

Sooner Legends donated hotel rooms for crews, staff and the bands. The promoters and set up crews came in days ago.
