It's a sold-out concert series and arguably one of the most anticipated shows of the decade.

Garth Brooks is coming back to Tulsa after 17 years.

With the first show right around the corner, there are some things patrons need to know, especially if they have paperless tickets.

Garth may have friends in low places, but if you're headed to the BOK Center for one of his upcoming concerts, you'll have friends in high places, low places, and maybe even some smack dab in the middle.

Regardless of where you and your friends are sitting, if you bought tickets together with the same credit card, you'll need to stick together to get in.

“You will take that credit card, with your entire party -- the entire party has to be together at point of entry -- you take your credit card to any ticket taker at any door, they will scan it and you will walk right in," BOK Center Assistant General Manager Casey Sparks said.

But what about those who recently had to cancel their credit card? Get a new one? Or ordered with a card that is now expired?

That process is a little different.

“If they do not have the original card that they purchased the tickets with, the person that purchased the tickets -- now this is important --the person who purchased the tickets has to come to the box office with their ID and they will do their best to accommodate that customer that way," Sparks said.

The same goes if you bought paperless tickets and sold them to someone else.

You, your ID and your credit card have to go to the box office, and they will print your tickets that way the night of the concert.

But the biggest question so far: If I have paperless entry -- when can I pick up my tickets??

The answer? You already have them! That's why ticket takers will swipe your credit card at the door to get in.

The next step: Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

On Saturday, Jan. 10, there will be two shows -- one at 7:30 p.m. and one at 10:30 p.m.

Parking will be available just like any other show at the BOK Center, except for the Jan. 10 shows. That night, there will be a 7:30 p.m. show and another at 10:30 p.m.

So people headed to the early Saturday show will be parking closest to the BOK Center West of Main Street, and those headed to the 10:30 show will be directed to park anywhere East of Main Street in downtown.
