Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - Country music superstars George Strait and Martina McBride are set to make history at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks this weekend.

With nearly 20,000 tickets already sold for Saturday's show, it is expected to be the largest concert ever at the event center.

The Alerus hasn't seen anything close to this amount of people since 2002, when Cher sold about 19,600 tickets.

With less than 900 tickets left for George and Martina, officials expect a sell-out.

Cheryl Swanson, Alerus Center Executive Director: "Clearly we're very proud, very happy. But we have a responsibility to all the people that bought tickets to provide a safe environment and to make sure that they have the best experience possible. So we're encouraging everyone to carpool if they can, arrive early. Get parked, get settled."

Parking at the Alerus will set you back $10.
