BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - A concert to raise money for those affected by last month's tornadoes has sold out.

Wednesday's Rock to the Rescue concert at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington will feature Styx and REO Speedwagon.

Proceeds will benefit communities in central Illinois that were heavily damaged by the deadly Nov. 17 storm.

The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports (http://bit.ly/1bdY789 ) that as of Tuesday every available ticket had been sold.

Other artists scheduled to perform are Richard Marx, Ted Nugent, Larry the Cable Guy, Survivor, Head East and Brushville.

Designated charities are Midwest Food Bank, Peoria Citizens Committee for Economic Opportunity, Tazwood Community Services, Toys for Tots and Washington Rotary Club.

Rock to the Rescue is a nonprofit organization founded by Styx's Tommy Shaw and REO's Kevin Cronin in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
