Officials at the University of Oregon said security will be extremely tight with extra personnel at each gate.

According to online records, the biggest crowd that has ever been at Autzen Stadium was 60,055 people in October 2011. However, Mike Duncan, the associate athletic director of events at Autzen Stadium, said Saturday night's crowd will exceed the previous record. 

"What we can expect -- this is going to be the most people that we've ever had in Autzen Stadium for a single event. So there's going to be an awful lot of people here," says Duncan.

Duncan also said there will be heavy traffic throughout the area, so if you're going, you should plan ahead. If you're not, he said you should avoid the area.

The regular parking lots at Autzen are already sold out, so concertgoers can expect to pay up to $40 at a lot farther out.
