CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

If you bought tickets to the upcoming Chris Stapleton concert at the Show Me Center, you'll need to read this story carefully to make sure you get in.

According to Wil Gorman, Director of the Show Me Center, anyone who purchased a ticket to the concert over the phone or online was given two sets of tickets. Concert attendees will need to bring both sets of tickets to the show.

Gorman said one set of the tickets work and the other ones will not.

An email will go out to all paying customers who purchased a ticket in order to explain the process.

Gorman said they are worried about people selling and buying the set of non-working tickets. As a result, they suggest concert goers come to the show early. There will be an increased security presence.

Business owners said they have been planning for months for this concert and are ready for the crowd.

As we await the thousands of people that will flood the area, ride-sharing company CarGO met up with its drivers today to fill them in on the game plan.

The drivers must pick up and drop off customers in a designated area to help lessen the chances of getting stuck in traffic and get people around faster.

Gunnar Knudtson and Kyle Campbell with CarGO said this concert is big for the area and all local business owners are ready to provide great service.

"To bring a large amount of people like this into the community to see the downtown to see the university, to see Cape Girardeau only helps us all," Knudtson said. "And it's a blast to say we can offer a ride sharing company, it CarGo, they aren't stranded, there's nothing else to be offered in this area."

If you don't have a room reserved, you may be out of luck. 

The majority of the hotels in Cape Girardeau are booked this weekend for the sold out concert.
