NBC has set May 29 for the “Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert” special hosted by “Voice” panelist Blake Shelton to aid victims of the tornadoes that ravaged Oklahoma this week.

The concert will be held at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City and will also be broadcast by NBC sibling nets Style, E!, G4, Bravo and Viacom’s CMT.
