Country music superstar Toby Keith returned to the concert stage for the Fourth of July weekend in his hometown of Norman, Oklahoma. The pop-up concerts in the town, which occurred on Friday and Saturday, drew hundreds of fans and were his first concert appearances since he announced in the summer of 2022 that he was fighting a battle with stomach cancer.
The Associated Press reports that a resident of Norman who showed up to the Friday concert, Joanna Hall, said that Keith both did a terrific job with his performance and expressed his gratitude to those who turned out to watch him, saying that he was “very thankful for everybody who showed up.”

Keith told The Oklahoman last month that his battle with cancer has gone well so far, with the tumor shrinking in size by a third as his blood tests have looked good. He also said that “basically, everything is in a real positive trend” and “You never know with cancer, so you have to prepare.”
