Teen Choice Live! will bring fun and games to the youth of Tulsa, Feb. 10 at the Tulsa Convention Center Arena.
Tickets start at $30, plus fees, available at tulsaworld.com/tulsaconventioncenter, the Tulsa Convention Center box office on event days, the Arby's Box Office at BOK Center, all Tickets.com outlets, or by calling 877-TULSACC. The show is all-ages.
The tour includes Olympic gold medalists Gabrielle Douglas, Alexandra Raisman and Jordyn Wieber with special musical guest and rising pop stars Megan & Liz.
The three Olympic superstars were vital to the American women's team's dominance at the 2012 London Olympics and brought home the U.S. gymnastics gold for the first time in 16 years.
"The support from our fans since we returned home has been incredible," Raisman said in a press statement. "This tour will be a fun 'thank you' to everyone that has shown that support and helped us accomplish our goals."
Said Wieber: "We know it's going to be an amazing show and hope the fans leave inspired to follow their dream, just like we followed ours."
The tour brings with it the theme of the "Teen Choice Awards," the teen pop culture show that has run for 14 years on Fox. It also will celebrate television, music, film, sports, fashion, comedy and the Web.
