More than three decades into a storied career, the Oak Ridge Boys are set to perform from a catalog of hits on April 28 at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa. Tickets start at $35 and go on sale March 17.

Since 1973, the Oak Ridge Boys have released 27 studio albums, including 11 that have peaked in the top 10 of the Billboard country music charts. The band has released 56 singles, including 17 No. 1 hits as well as an additional 15 tracks that have reached the top 10. 

Among the band’s biggest hits are “Elvira,” “Bobbie Sue,” “Dream On,” “Thank God for Kids,” “American Made,” “Fancy Free” and “I Guess It Never Hurts to Hurt Sometimes.” The Oaks earned numerous awards for “Elvira,” including the 1982 Grammy for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and the 1981 American Country Music and Country Music Association Single of the Year awards.
